Volkswagen has announced that it will celebrate the world premiere of its upcoming pickup concept at the Sao Paulo International Motor Show on 6 November.
The company says that the pickup will fuse the features of a digitally networked SUV with the versatility of a well-thought-out pickup to form a new, urban-oriented vehicle.
Yet to be named, the concept, which will be positioned below the Amarok, is based on the modular transverse matrix (MQB) platform just like the Tiguan compact SUV.
One of the noteworthy innovations of this concept is the multivariable loading area, which can be extended in just a couple of simple steps thanks to the folding rear panel of the double cab.
Due to be launched in Brazil in the near future, this is not the first time Volkswagen has made a compact exclusively for the country.
The upcoming concept will actually be continuing the success story of the Saveiro which began back in 1983 in South America.
What Volkswagen did was take the Gol subcompact car and added a pickup bed and made their first compact pickup for the South American market.
Having received an overwhelming response, the Saveiro is now in its third generation and remains a hit in the South American market.
Although the upcoming pickup concept is slated for Brazil, Volkswagen said that there are possibilities for the vehicle to be sold in other regions besides South America due to its “great potential”.
