Volkswagen Tharu & Tayron are the names of the new Chinese SUVs!
At the Generation SUV & Touareg World Premiere last Friday in Beijing, China. Volkswagen revealed two new SUV concepts. The Advanced Mid-size SUV and Powerful Family SUV from its two joint ventures FAW & SAIC.
When reviewing this Press Conference VWNEWSBLOG came across the names Tayron & Tharu listed in the EU fuel directives.
SAIC Volkswagen Tharu
We know from our Brazilian and Argentine media that Tharu is the name being used for a production vehicle that will be built in Pacheco, Argentina.
Volkswagen also stated last week the the People's SUV or Powerful Family SUV will be built in China this year and Mexico (for North America), Argentina (for South America) and Russia from 2020. Expected sales annually is forecasted to 400,000 units.
Tharu could be the name SAIC Volkswagen use when they release the little Teramont as the SAIC VW CEO called it.
FAW Volkswagen revealed the Advanced Mid-size SUV concept and we strongly believe the Tayron nameplate belongs to this yellow beauty. Not much is known about Tayron. FAW VW were keeping all specification close at hand.
Except FAW VW did say this will be a 'Premium' midsize SUV for Chinese tastes. Much like the SAIC Volkswagen Phideon is a China only model.
