The T-Cross is sold around the world with options for two wheelbases. While the short version based on the MQB AO platform is Europe-oriented, it is the longest variant for emerging markets such as China, India, and South America.
While the love affair of the automotive industry with SUVs continues, the German manufacturer continues to offer the largest SUV offensive in history of the company. In 2025, every second Volkswagen car sold in the world will likely be an SUV. This applies to every fifth car being sold now. The brand projects a mainly strong growth in SUV sales in South and North America as well as in China.
In 2025, Volkswagen will offer more than 30 models of SUVs around the world. With the new T-Cross with the size of Polo, the brand completes its portfolio of SUVs to the lowest position in the smallest segment. Volkswagen T-Cross made its world debut on October 24 and was simultaneously unveiled in Europe, China and South America.
“SUVs are becoming more and more popular with our customers around the world,” says Jürgen Stackmann, a member of the board of directors of Volkswagen Passenger Cars unit, responsible for sales. “That is why we are constantly pushing our current SUV offensive and this will make an essential contribution in spiraling our core business so that we can invest the billions of euros needed for autonomous driving and mobility.”
With Touareg in the premium SUV segment, Tiguan2 and T-Roc in the compact categories and the new T-Cross in the small car segment, Volkswagen has a brawny portfolio of products that will persist to grow.
Volkswagen’s first all-electric SUV, the ID. CROZZ3 will be launched in 2020. This segment of vehicles is part of Volkswagen’s e-mobility offensive, which targets to market 20 new 100% electric models by 2025.
