The Volkswagen T-Roc was first introduced in the Indian market last year as a completely built unit (CBU) at a price of ₹ 19.99 lakh (ex-showroom), which came powered by a 1.5-litre, four-cylinder petrol engine churning out 147 bhp of maximum power and 250 Nm of peak torque.
Volkswagen India is focusing to put more emphasis on SUVs in its India 2.0 strategy and its recent launches and plans are going very well with the company's strategy. The German company is all set to introduce the Volkswagen Taigun in the country in the third quarter of the year 2021, followed by another brand new SUV joining the line in the next quarter. The Volkswagen Tiguan All-Space and the T-Roc were up for sale in India and have already been sold out. Another surprising thing that has happened is that the second batch of the T-Roc that was scheduled to come early in the second quarter of the year has also been sold out. According to the Indian policy, foreign automakers are allowed to import and sell up to 2,500 units of vehicles in the Indian market every year without the need for homologation.
Ashish Gupta, the Brand Head of Volkswagen India said in an interview that Q1 will be focused on further democratising out TSI range - the Polo and Vento, and for the second quarter the brand will introduce the Tiguan All-Space, and the T-Roc, or rather continue with the All-Space and the T-Roc with the second batch coming to India. He said that this will give their customers something to look forward to. He further said that for the T-Roc especially, the company has received full orders for the second batch as well. They received around 2,000 bookings for the first batch and were only able to deliver 950 units out of what they received. For the customers who are still waiting for their car, the brand would like to deliver the car them first.
