The firm wants to diversify automotive sales on the continent. It plans to produce about 25,000 units in its production site in South Africa and Kenya. The company wants to open new assembly lines in the city of Thika, in Kenya.
The German car manufacturer expects automotive sales to increase, unlike last year when purchases were very low. But it can be explained by the political instability due to the general election. However, positive prospects are expected this year. That is why the firm is improving its plant in South Africa, in order to develop export market.
According to Volkswagen, Nigeria, Egypt and Algeria are among the biggest sales hits.
