Volkswagen has two new hybrids this year (Tiguan and Atlas), one with three standard columns of seating and one where it’s an alternative. That doesn’t leave a great deal of space for its most established model, the Tiguan, which is one reason why it’s leaving.
Volkswagen will stop the Touareg at least in the US for the 2018 model year. It will live on in different markets, and there’s even another era going ahead the Audi Q7’s stage, but they won’t see the light of day in these United States. Volkswagen affirmed the report by means of email.
The Touareg Lineup:
One major explanation behind jettisoning the Touareg is its place in the lineup. VW’s US lineup now incorporates the Atlas, a three-push huge ‘un manufactured particularly in view of this market. The Tiguan, which was updated during the current year, now has the alternative of either a few columns, and its overhauled inside components more load space than the current Touareg.
On the off chance that that wasn’t reason enough, its deals should place the last nail in the box. VW hasn’t sold more than 1,000 Touaregs in a solitary month since December 2012. In 2016, the organization sold 4,223 of them. Contrast this with the new Atlas, which more than two months oversaw 4,023 deals. The Tiguan has delighted in relentless, solid deals for a couple of years – truth be told, 2016 was its greatest year ever, with 43,638 deals in the US.
With various electric vehicles and no less than one more hybrid in transit. VW’s US lineup won’t take a colossal hit when the Touareg withdraws. It’ll be dismal to see it go, as it was a strong ride, yet greater and better things are headed.
