Chrysler and Chinese automaker Chery have already announced plans to build a future small car and now Volkswagen is forming a similar relationship. VW and Shanghai Auto are going to work together to produce a car that will be aimed at the global market. The car will initially be sold in China and then in the U.S.
The launch date of the new car has not been announced although there are reports that the first car will be a follow up to the Passat Lingyu.
