SAIC Volkswagen discontinues production of manual transmission models

SAIC Volkswagen announced that it will stop production of manual transmission models. The move does not involve layoffs. The affected workers will be reassigned to different production lines. The move will help VW accelerate its transition to electric vehicles, which the company plans will make up half of its global car sales by 2030. Demand for manual-transmission vehicles in the Chinese market has declined. According to the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers, manual transmission vehicles accounted for 10% of total sales of internal combustion engine vehicles in the Chinese market in the first three quarters of this year, down from 40% in 2017.
