According to Machalík, the new production line for the Up! at VW's factory in Bratislava is now being completed, adding that the entire plant is operating on four shifts, seven days per week. Meanwhile, the company earlier this month began recruiting the 1,500-odd new employees it needs for the new production line, which should expand annual production at the plant to 400,000 cars.

Up! is a city car which forms part of Volkswagen's New Small Family series.
