Volkswagen will go into the pick-up market starting 2010 to take om Toyota. The only pick-up that Volkswagen had into its line-up was a rebadged Toyota Hilux was sold by VW under the name "Taro" with only marginal success.
The 2010 "Robust" pickup will be offered in many variations - single and double cab, four wheel drive and also in cheaper two wheel drive. Engines are expected to include new common rail diesels but also a V6 gas engine for some markets.
The European version is scheduled to be built at the VW plant in Hannover, Germany.
