Car Production Germany By Make 2013

Yes I know, black shows everything. Pain to clean too

German car making has been stable for a few years now, as growth is overseas production facilities, such as China. The premium brands are up but the mass car makers all reduced volumes to some degree. VW is embarking on a cost cutting exercise to try improve profit, as wages are high for VW Germany. Over half of all cars made here are premium.
