Volkswagen AG confirms it will begin making Volkswagen-brand vehicles in the Ukraine this summer as it hopes to double sales there. VW will build the Bora, Golf, Polo and Passat models there. VW says the cars will be for the local market, but gave no indication of how many jobs will be created or what the volume of output will be (see related story: Ukraine to Assemble Opel, VW Cars). VW sold about 3,000 VW-brand vehicles in the Ukraine last year, a drop from previous years.
