Since 1981, when it started its operations, reaching the top of the market, respecting and satisfying customers' needs with the best cost-benefit ratio, has always been the focus of the automaker. And that is exactly what it offers its customers: custom made trucks and buses, excellent post-sales service and an extensive variety of services.

+ 1 million vehicles produced

Presence in 30 countries

The company is also a reference in technological innovations. It's in its DNA: since its first models, the automaker encourages and conducts studies with alternative sources of energy, such as renewable and alternative fuels, even before any legal obligation.

VWCO is always looking for solutions that reduce environmental impact and help preserve the environment. The manufacturer also maintains its commitment to develop vehicles that exceed customer demands - wherever they may run, be they on Brazilian, Latin American, or African roads.

Capacity to produce 100 thousand vehicles/year

2 factories | Brazil (Resende) and Mexico (Querétaro)

65 models of trucks and buses

Constant support for social projects


Volkswagen Caminhões e Ônibus has two factories and a revolutionary production concept, decisive factors for its success. The main production unit is in Resende, in the interior of the State of Rio de Janeiro, in Brazil. The other is in the Mexican city of Querétaro.


Located 150 kilometers from the city of Rio de Janeiro, the Resende plant entered the history of the global automobile industry by introducing a modern management concept, unprecedented in the relationship between the manufacturer and its main suppliers: the Modular Consortium. In this production system, suppliers share the responsibility for assembling the vehicles with the company.

The main advantages are increased productivity and reduced costs. The partner companies are Maxion (chassis and wheels), Meritor (axles), Suspensys (air suspensions), Carese (paint), Aethra (cabin frame), Powertrain (engine) and Kroschu (cabin finish).

Volkswagen Caminhões e Ônibus takes care of all the certification within the quality standards of the brand, in addition to the previous development work and also the steps subsequent to production, with sales, post-sales and service assistance.

e-Consortium: a new chapter in the automotive industry

VWCO also demonstrates its pioneering spirit in making electric mobility feasible, with the creation of the unprecedented e-Consortium. It is the first time in the world that a brand provides for everything from assembly to recharging infrastructure and battery life cycle management of these trucks, leveraging the commitment of the entire supply chain in such an integrated way.



The Volkswagen Caminhões e Ônibus plant in Querétaro is the second unit to produce its vehicles. It produces from VW Delivery and Constellation trucks to Volksbuses and also MAN models. Volkswagen Caminhões e Ônibus offers more than 30 different vehicles in Mexico. It also has a network of dealers to give full support to its customers on Mexican roads and streets.
