Volkswagen AG says it will move forward with plans to build a wagon version of the Golf V at its Puebla, Mexico, plant for a 2007 launch, according to Reuters. The plan is expected to gain approval from VW’s supervisory board on Nov. 12. The Golf wagon would boost the number of models built in Puebla to four. The plant will continue to build the Jetta, Beetle and Beetle convertible. VW says it will continue to build the current Golf wagon at its Wolfsburg, Germany, plant until 2006.
