HERNDON, Va., October 7, 2010 — Volkswagen of America, Inc. today presented the City of Chattanooga and Hamilton County with two custom-made Jetta SportWagen TDI vehicles to each law enforcement department to help keep residents safe.

 

“Volkswagen is thrilled to be able to provide technologically advanced Jetta SportWagen vehicles to both the City of Chattanooga and Hamilton County police departments to help keep the area safe while driving in a reliable, versatile and stylish vehicle,” said Frank Fischer, Chairman and CEO of Volkwagen’s Chattanooga Operations. “Volkswagen is committed to continue building a longstanding relationship with the Chattanooga community and we know these vehicles will provide the officers of this area with the kind of performance they need to get the job done.”

 

“This generous gift is much appreciated and will be a welcomed addition to our expanding Chattanooga Police Department,” said Chattanooga Mayor Ron Littlefield. “We applaud Volkswagen for their continued investment in our community.”

 

“Since Volkswagen announced their billion dollar investment in Hamilton County they have demonstrated numerous times their willingness to be a good corporate neighbor,” said Hamilton County Mayor Claude Ramsey. “Today’s gift of two law enforcement vehicles is further proof of Volkswagen’s commitment to Hamilton County and we thank them for their generosity.”

 

Engineers and designers overhauled the white Jetta SportWagen vehicles to incorporate features that would help the police. A sport styling body package including a rear spoiler, and chrome exhaust tips to create a stylish and imposing presence.

 

Under the hood, the vehicle offers a potent 2.0L TDI clean diesel four-cylinder engine. The engine achieves an impressive 236 ft.-lbs. of torque through its turbo diesel engine and up to 42 miles per gallon on the highway.

 

The Jetta SportWagens also feature 225/40 18” Goodyear Eagle GT All Season tires mounted over Volkswagen’s own 18-inch Goal wheel package.

 

The interior features everything needed for Community Policing activities. FMS Automotive technicians expertly created custom-built enclosures and mounts, to hold all the communications and emergency lighting gear in place.
