After being announced a year ago, production of the Volkswagen Golf in the carmaker’s plant in Puebla, Mexico has begun on the fiftieth anniversary of the company’s official arrival in the country. It was 60 years ago that VW commenced exports to Mexico, formally making a home there on January 15, 1964 by establishing Volkswagen de Mexico as an importer. Thirteen years later, Puebla began its legendary run of Beetle manufacture.

Now it makes the (reborn) Beetle and Jetta, the Golf joining its family members on the MQB architecture. VW has put $700 million into the facility for production of the Golf hatchback and future variants for the North and South American markets, the first fruits of which we’re told will be in dealerships in the second quarter of this year. There’s a press release below with a few more details on the operation.
