Volkswagen AG (VOW) plans to start assembling cars in Nigeria as early as next year with Dubai-based conglomerate Stallion Group, according to people familiar with the matter.

The world’s second-largest automaker approved the project for small-scale final assembly because of tax rules that encourage local manufacturing, said the people, who asked not to be named before an official announcement. A spokesman for VW declined to comment. Stallion Group didn’t respond to messages seeking comment.
