Volkswagen announced the closure of bookings of the recently launched T-Roc in India. The compact SUV arrived back in March 2020 at a price tag of Rs 19.99 lakh (ex-showroom). Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, customer deliveries had been delayed and post relaxation of lockdown restrictions, the T-Roc has been sold out!

Commenting on this announcement, Steffen Knapp, Director, Volkswagen Passenger Cars India said, “We are thrilled with the response received for our carlines – T-Roc & Tiguan Allspace. It is a testament of customer acceptance on our SUVW offensive strategy. Keeping this momentum, we are excited as we prepare for our next big SUV – the Volkswagen Taigun. To be launched in 2021, the Taigun is aligned with our brand philosophy of building premium accessible cars. It will offer customers a promising value proposition that embodies the marvel of German engineering, powerful and enhanced driving experience with Volkswagen’s TSI technology and accessible mobility solutions.”

As a part of VW’s SUVW strategy, the brand had launched the Tiguan Allspace and T-Roc for Indian customers. Both the SUVs are powered by Volkswagen’s award-winning TSI technology. The T-Roc has a distinctive design language with its coupé style roof. It’s built on Volkswagen’s modular transverse matrix (MQB) platform, powered by a 1.5-litre EVO TSI engine mated to a seven-speed DSG transmission.
