In the middle of September Volkswagen unveiled its plan to reach 800,000 sales yearly in the US by 2018. The attempt to boost sales will be supported by launching three key models onto the market: the Jetta, Beetle and a still-nameless mid-size sedan manufactured at the new plant based in Chattanooga, Tennesee.

Officially, Browning will take over the new post Oct.1 and he has the tough job of cracking the US automotive market. He is definitely going to be under pressure to increase revenues in the US, where the company faced losses for a few years. The daring plan that has been worked out includes surpassing Toyota as the biggest car maker and increase the volume of sales in the US to one million by 2018 (altogether 800,000 Volkswagens and 200,000 Audis).
The new strategy, according to Automotive News, would also include a shift in price, from the current 10% above the US and Japanese competition to 5% which still allows Volkswagen to prevail on the market as a premium brand.
