Volkswagen AG (VOW.XE) said Thursday that it will manufacture its T-Cross compact sports-utility vehicle at a company plant in Navarra, Spain.

The decision marks the first time that a second model will be produced at the plant, which has manufactured the German car maker's popular Polo model since 1984.

Volkswagen said the addition of the T-Cross is expected to raise the production at the plant to 350,000 vehicles a year from 244,000, and increase the workforce by 10%.

Producing both the Polo and the T-Cross at the same site will be more efficient, the company said, expecting production of the compact SUV to start at the end of this year.
