Approximately in the middle of 2020 at the plant of GAZ Group in Nizhny Novgorod

Approximately in the middle of 2020 at the plant of GAZ Group in Nizhny Novgorod will begin to collect the first pre-production copies of the new crossover "Volkswagen", which can be named Tarek. About this Avtovestyam told own source in Volkswagen. During the next year will produce tooling and adaptation of the Assembly line for the release of new items. The timing of the premiere and the start of sales are not called-it will probably happen in late 2020 or early 2021.

C), by the way, the situation is also not yet fully clarified. Volkswagen's affordable crossover project for North and South America, as well as Russia, is generally called Tarek.

The VW Tharu crossover is already being produced in China and is different from what we will see.

It is possible that the relatively affordable SUV Volkswagen Tarek technically will largely repeat Skoda Karoq, which is also about to launch in Nizhny Novgorod. Tarek will receive the same configuration of the MQB platform with similar overall dimensions. It is too early to talk about the engine range - we can only conditionally assume the appearance of an" intermediate " 1.4 l TSI at 150 HP, with mechanics and 7-DSG (or automatic transmission). Whether there will be a 1.6-liter naturally aspirated, more powerful turbo and all-wheel drive is difficult to predict.

In China, a similar concept Tharu has 1.2 l, 1.4 l and 2.0 l turbomotors, but is equipped with only front-wheel drive. So "our" configuration, for sure, will be different. 

Similar to the Russian Volkswagen Tarek will be produced at factories in Mexico and Argentina. The first will close volumes for the US, Canada and, in fact, Mexico, and the Argentine site will meet the demand in South America. Since Volkswagen Tarek is positioned a step below the Tiguan, it is quite logical that the starting ruble price tag on it should be below 1.5 million rubles.
