There will be a little something pretty new joining the Volkswagen lineup this yr, and that is the brand’s 1st all-electric SUV, the ID. four. But we shouldn’t forget about that a second VW SUV will be making its debut later this yr: the Taos.

Generation of the ID.four has by now began and we will see designs on the highway later this yr. This week, Volkswagen’s Mexican division declared the start off of manufacturing of the 2022 Taos destined for the American – and Canadian – marketplaces.

The Taos small SUV will be positioned under the Tiguan in the German automaker’s lineup. The Puebla assembly plant has by now made far more than four,300 units to day for Mexican buyers and the United States will be the 1st foreign sector to get the design. Generation for Canada is predicted to get started in the coming months.

“With Taos, Volkswagen de Mexico strengthens its placement as a critical participant in the brand’s worldwide technique for the SUV section and will improve manufacturing capacity at the Puebla Plant, with solutions created for the North American Location,” declared Steffen Reiche, CEO, and President of Volkswagen de Mexico.

Added Christopher Glover, Vice President of Generation and Logistics at Volkswagen in Mexico, “we are pretty happy of this new stage, which was obtained as a result of the exceptional teamwork of all stakeholders. We reaffirm our motivation to continue on to present the ideal solutions, with the quality and efficiency that our customers anticipate.”

The German automotive giant has invested in excess of $four hundred million USD in its Puebla plant in preparation for Taos manufacturing for abroad marketplaces. The 2022 Taos is predicted to arrive in U.S. showrooms by the close of the second quarter of 2021, and it will abide by shortly thereafter in Canada. The design comes with a 1.5L turbocharged four-cylinder engine generating 158 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque, in affiliation with a 7-pace, dual-clutch computerized transmission. We still await for pricing on this design.
