Carmaker Volkswagen Slovakia will extend non-stop production of sports utility vehicles (SUVs) until June 30, 2012 in response to continued high global demand for the SUVs produced at the Bratislava plant, the plant's spokesman Vladimír Machalík told TASR newswire on December 22.

Carmaker Volkswagen Slovakia will extend non-stop production of sports utility vehicles (SUVs) until June 30, 2012 in response to continued high global demand for the SUVs produced at the Bratislava plant, the plant's spokesman Vladimír Machalík told TASR newswire on December 22.

Barring several holidays during and shortly after Christmas, the plant will use its SUV-production capacity to the maximum. This applies to all production operations. Non-stop production of the Volkswagen Touareg, the Audi Q7 and the Porsche Cayenne at the plant was launched in September 2010 and has been extended three times since then, TASR reported.

Car production will be re-launched after the plant-wide holiday on January 16, 2012, and with boosted capacity. The assembly lines are currently undergoing modifications in order to lay the groundwork for increased capacity after the holidays.
