VW set up the vehicle assembly plant in 2016, resuming production in Kenya after a four decade break. The plant has started by assembling VW's Vivo model.

President Uhuru Kenyatta was told by VW's South Africa chief Thomas Schaefer "the firm was exploring producing a second model in Kenya, possibly a hatchback - small SUV - while doubling production of the VW Polo Vivo to at least 300 vehicles," the presidential office said in a statement late on Friday.
