WOLFSBURG -- Volkswagen Group will build a multi-brand plant in Turkey, according to Automobilwoche, a sister publication of Automotive News Europe.

VW's supervisory board on Thursday picked a site for the factory near the western coastal city of Izmir over a location in Bulgaria.

The plant will build cars for VW, Skoda and Seat. It will ease capacity constraints at Skoda's factories in the Czech Republic.

The state of Qatar, which has a 17 percent stake in VW, pushed for the factory to be built in Turkey at the board meeting.

Qatar pushes for Muslim factory unsurprisingly. Will ECB fund the build?

They'd come via the Co-Op bank, which was back then, supposedly ethical or at least pretended to be. I'd used them since 2004. I invested where they advised.

VW had picked Manisa, 40 km (25 miles) northeast of Izmir on Turkey's western coast, for the plant, with production scheduled to start in 2022.

On Tuesday, the company said it had postponed the final decision on the site in Turkey amid international criticism of the country's military operation in Syria and concerns about potential reputational fallout.


Oh dear! A nation with a belligerent and racialist leader, who has ambitions to establish a national car manufacturer. Can't be having that, can we?

This is why the EU needs an army. To protect it's car making investments in third world countries.
