KUALA LUMPUR: Last year, Volkswagen revealed its plan of dropping the Passat from the U.S. lineup and now, it officially announced the deadline. The German automaker will stop selling the midsize sedan with 2022 model year and the part of the Chattanooga plant where the sedan was used to assemble will be transformed for building the Volkswagen electric cars. But before that, the company rolled out the 2022 Volkswagen Passat Limited Edition model as a nod to the role played by the sedan in resurging the brand in the U.S. market.
