Volkswagen Australia secures production of 1,800-plus T‑Roc R performance SUVs

Further faster Volkswagens are on the way to Australia with the brand having successfully negotiated extra production of more than 1500 in-demand T‑Roc Rs in addition to 300 T‑Roc R Grid Editions.

Director of Volkswagen Passenger Vehicles Michal Szaniecki said just as the brand secured 1000 additional Touareg large SUVs last year, it is now able to dramatically shorten wait times for the performance variants of its T‑Roc.

“We can accept supply shortages of popular models or we can try to effect solutions,” Mr Szaniecki said. “Ours is a primary R market so in addition to securing extra T‑Roc R production, we’ll offer a unique to Australia T‑Roc R Grid Edition.

“The result is more than 1,800 examples of the T‑Roc R will soon be ready for our customers, who are making the T‑Roc one of Volkswagen’s defining vehicles of the 2020s and the T‑Roc R comfortably our top-selling ‘R’ model.”

Volkswagen T‑Roc R launched in Australia in September last year as the most attainable R model, now priced from $60,300 MRP plus on-road costs.

Next month this will be followed by the T‑Roc R Grid Edition priced from $54,300 MRP plus on-road costs.

Both are unmatched in the compact SUV segment for a combination of power, performance and practicality, with a 221kW and 400Nm 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine and zero to 100km/h performance in 4.9 seconds.
