VW Ups production for UK

VW is struggling to meet demand in the UK, especially for the Up city car.

According to industry website, www.just-auto.com, most buyers are having to wait two months for an Up, and there are also said to be shortages of the Golf GTI and the Passat. The problem, of course, is that cars have to be specially made for the UK and Ireland, as Europe's only major right-hand-drive markets. VW cannot simply divert cars no longer wanted by crisis-hit markets in southern Europe.
