CHATTANOOGA, TN, (WDEF)- VW Chattanooga are contenders to manufacture the new CrossBlue SUV.
Officials confirmed that Chattanooga's plant are mounting a serious challenge to be considered if the vehicle is given the green light.
Local mechanics and VW supporters are excited by the prospect, Joe KirkPatrick,"VW is a part of the family, i've worked on them for 35 years and if you had asked me then if we could ever make Volkswagen cars here in Chattanooga i would have not believed you".
