(Reuters) - German automaker Volkswagen’s (VOWG_p.DE) U.S. plant in Chattanooga, Tennessee, is building 400 Atlas SUVs a day, close to capacity and on pace to reach 100,000 per year, Matthias Erb, who heads VW’s North American engineering team, said on Thursday.

Erb said the plant can boost production further if demand for the new Atlas warrants.
