This summer's Olympics in China will not only be crawling with thousands of athletes and spectators — it'll be crawling with thousands of Volkswagens!
As the exclusive automobile partner, the VW Group will be supplying 6,000 vehicles — including 4,350 VWs as well as vehicles from sister brands Audi (1,000) and Skoda (650).
The three brands will also have on-site showcases for their vehicles.
More than 10,000 athletes from more than 200 countries will compete in the Olympics Aug. 8 to 24. Four-million visitors are expected.
