Volkswagen has announced the official price of the all-new T-Roc for the Indian market. Priced at Rs 21.35, ex-showroom, Volkswagen will offer only a variant of the T-Roc in the Indian market. Volkswagen has started accepting the bookings for the all-new T-Roc. However, the deliveries will start by May 2021.
The German manufacturer – Volkswagen introduced the T-Roc SUV way back in March 2020. Launched as a CBU or Completely Built Unit, Volkswagen limited the sales of the T-Roc to just 1,000 units. All the units were sold out within a few months and Volkswagen stopped taking the official bookings in September last year.
The new T-Roc will be imported to the Indian market as a CBU too. That’s why it will be sold in limited numbers in the Indian market. Volkswagen takes advantage of the rule that allows a manufacturer to sell 2,500 units of a vehicle in a year without any homologation. Volkswagen has not revealed the exact number of units that will be sold in India. However, the number is expected to be limited to 1,000 units just like last time.
Commenting on the occasion, Mr Ashish Gupta, Brand Director, Volkswagen Passenger Cars India said,
“We are delighted to announce that customers can now book their favorite SUV T-Roc, through our online retail platform or our dealership network across India. We have also announced a unique initiative offering our customers an opportunity to register their interest for our most anticipated SUVW, the Volkswagen Taigun and the New Tiguan. 2021 is a significant year for Volkswagen India and with this announcement, we are a step closer to fulfilling our commitment of delivering 4-SUVs by the end of 2021.”
The new Volkswagen T-Roc can be booked online on the official website. However, if someone wants to book the vehicle physically at the dealership, that can be done too.
