Not the Touareg - the new Cross Blue 7 Passenger vehicle (aimed at the US Market) will be built in the US. All the Touareg's are still coming out of Bratislava.

Steve, I have had a Gospel Experience, after watching "The Blues Brothers" for the 63rd time, now I am one of the righteous ones.

Pretty cool video, thanks for sharing!

The painting process is crazy, doors on for the first part...then they take them off again for the interior install... the robots paint the main surfaces then the jams by hand... this is all over the place...

Also like others have said, there sure is a lot of manual hands on part installation. Very different than I imagined...speaking of which where are the Umpa Lumpas I kept picturing?

I also love the view of the under carriage without suspension and drive train installed...looks burly with the "frame" exposed.

At around 4:30 you can see the entire length of the 2-piece propshaft. Doesn't that view of the drivetrain clearly answer the question others have asked: "Why not a 1-piece propshaft?" The front and rear sections are at different angles, not in a straight line.

They're there, all right. Didn't you Umpa Lumpas can only be seen by humans - to mirrors and cameras and the like they are invisible.

I thought EVERYONE knew THAT . . . which has set me thinking, Father Christmas must be back from his holidays and cracking the whip over his little helpers.

Now, then, have you all been GOOD boys . . . . ?
