This is a short video showing how the VW Taos is built. This video was uploaded and posted by Autoblog Argentina and it shows the VW Argentina Production Facility. I know the VW Taos for US and Canada is manufactured in Mexico. But, based on the videos I've seen so far of the VW Production Facility in Pueblo, MX, the process will be very close or almost identical to their plant in Argentina. Enjoy!

This video is really cool. My kids love watching it. I noticed someone edited it though and put some things out of order. Installing the gas tank, then showing them moving the gas tank into position?
There’s another version on Youtube that has things in order, and with a bit more detail, and without the presentation video at the end.

It is really amazing to watch the production process especially with all the robots working in such precise conditions. It must have been a pain in the a$$ to calibrate, re-calibrate, and set everything up from scratch. Watching how things are built makes me appreciate them more and it just adds value to it. Sadly, in this day and age of easy financing and mass production, a lot of things are treated as disposable even if they are still working perfectly.

Back in 2005 I visited the E-klasse factory in Germany. We didn’t get to see the initial body welding floor with all the robots, but we did get to see the rest. In that factory, the bodies came up from an elevator and you never knew what you would see. They had wagons, sedans and the 4 door coupe versions all on the same line, and versions for export as well as domestic, so there would be a red german wagon, then a silver UK sedan with right drive, then a blue US coupe, etc. There the robots didn’t insert the dash into the car. There was a lifting arm that the workers guided by hand that moved the dash inside. Same with the seats.
