CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -

Volkswagen Chattanooga today announced that VW workers have produced their 250,000th Passat sedan.
 
The car, a Night Blue Volkswagen Passat TDI with a navigation system and other accessories, was celebrated by both workers and management.
 
"Two years ago our team members had just learned to build cars," said Frank Fischer, CEO and Chairman of Volkswagen Chattanooga. "Today we celebrate a quarter of a million Volkswagen Passats from Chattanooga. I am very proud of this team."
 
The first customer car rolled off the Chattanooga assembly line on April 18, 2011, and the 100,000th Passat was built on May 31, 2012.

The 250,000 milestone sedan was celebrated with the nearly 2,700 team members during a meeting this week.
