Volkswagen India has announced the closure of bookings for the T-Roc. The company had launched the T-Roc in the country just ahead of the lockdown in March 2020 and it was priced at ₹ 19.99 lakh and the company has received an overwhelming response for the car, which is why it has announced that the current batch of T-Roc has been sold out which is the reason why it has stopped taking bookings for the car. The deliveries to customers of the T-Roc too were hampered because of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The T-Roc is built on VW's MQB platform and was introduced in India as a completely built unit and the competitive price has certainly worked in the company's favour. Steffen Knapp, Director, Volkswagen Passenger Cars India said, “We are thrilled with the response received for our carlines – T-Roc & Tiguan Allspace. It is a testament of customer acceptance on our SUVW offensive strategy. Keeping this momentum, we are excited as we prepare for our next big SUV – the Volkswagen Taigun.”
