Volkswagen T-Roc Sold Out For 2020
All units of the compact SUV allocated for India are spoken for
The T-Roc was launched in India at Rs 19.99 lakh (ex-showroom India) in March just before the lockdown.
It was introduced here via the CBU (completely built-up) route and offered in a single top-spec variant.
Only 1,000 units of the T-Roc were allocated for India for 2020 and they’re all sold out.
Volkswagen may assemble the T-Roc locally in 2021 before accepting bookings for it again.
The T-Roc has premium comforts and is available with a single 1.5-litre turbo-petrol engine paired with a 7-speed DSG.
The Volkswagen T-Roc compact SUV was launched in India just before the nationwide lockdown. Brought to India via the CBU (completely built-up) route, it’s been on sale in a single, fully-loaded variant. The German carmaker has now announced that all 1,000 units of the T-Roc that were allocated for India for 2020 have been sold out.
As a top-spec CBU offering, the T-Roc was priced at Rs 19.99 lakh (ex-showroom India). Its European styling distinguishes it from the competitors with exterior features like a panoramic sunroof, 17-inch alloys, and dual-chamber LED headlamps. The T-Roc was offered with comforts like dual-zone climate control, a 12.3-inch virtual cockpit, 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, and power-adjustable driver’s seat.
The T-Roc was only offered with a single powertrain option: a 1.5-litre turbo-petrol engine making 150PS/250Nm mated to a 7-speed DSG. This engine is also equipped with Active Cylinder Technology that shuts down two of the four engine cylinders when feasible to maximise efficiency.
Volkswagen’s premium offering was competing against the likes of the Jeep Compass, Skoda Karoq, and the facelifted Hyundai Tucson. With all allocated units spoken for, the carmaker is not accepting any more bookings for the T-Roc while the remaining deliveries will continue over the coming months.
Given the model’s popularity, Volkswagen could consider locally assembling the T-Roc in India next year. However, the carmaker will likely be focussing on the Taigun first which will be its first made-in-India small SUV that sits in the highly lucrative compact SUV segment. The Taigun will compete against the Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, and the upcoming Skoda Vision IN.
