Volkswagen India have reportedly delayed the potential deliveries of their recently launched mid-size SUV, the T-Roc. This may have been done due to the presence of several factors that may have affected its production. As per reports from Volkswagen Team, now the delivery for Volkswagen T-Roc has already started.
The Volkswagen T-Roc was launched in March this-year, just days before the nationwide lockdown was implemented throughout the country. Volkswagen did manage to import 1,000 units of the T-Roc as its first batch to be sold in the market. It will be sold as a CBU here, with Volkswagen trying to adhere to the new import rules introduced here.
This states that global automakers can import about 2,500 vehicles to India either as a CKD kit or a CBU one. However, the vehicle to be imported must be meeting the International Automotive Standards. That will result in lesser taxes for import, meaning the product can be priced competitively by the automaker.
The Volkswagen T-Roc was launched here at a price of Rs.19.99 lakh (ex-showroom, India). It will be made to rival the likes of the Jeep Compass and the Hyundai Tucson in the higher end of the mid-size SUV segment. The T-Roc will also be a comeback product for Volkswagen, with the mid-size SUV marking the start of the automaker’s ‘India 2.0’ plan.
