Hanover loses Robust Pick Up Production

Stephan Schaller current head of Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has announced that due to rising costs and tough CO2 laws the new Robust Pick Up will not be manufactured in Germany.

This however does not mean that Europe will miss out as originally reported on the Automobilwoche website, with another article dated 4th of July confirming Europe will get it.

Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles sees strong potential for the Argentine built truck where exports will account for the majority of the 90,000 per year production.
Brazil and South Africa are mentioned in the article as key markets for the Robust.

Hi Phaeton,

I'm from Brazil, and I'm a VW's enthusiast too. I liked very much your blog.

I have a blog about the VW too, it called Volks Fans. If you can visit it, I would stay happy.

Sorry, if my english was bad.
