The Community-Driven Atlas
Storage capacity = capacity for caring. We see a lot of opportunity to help our community. VW dealer employees have been using their loaner fleet of Altas SUVs and other Volkswagen vehicles to deliver supplies to food banks, and other pickup and delivery initiatives. Nationwide, Volkswagen’s network of more than 600 dealers maintain a loaner fleet of nearly 7,000 vehicles, though some dealerships may be closed or working with reduced personnel due to state and local guidelines. All dealers are advised to adhere to local, state and federal health directions and recommendations to ensure the safety of their employees and program participants.
