It seems that for a while, Volkswagen had no intentions of bringing back the Phaeton back on US soil. Sure, there were discussions involved, but nothing amounted to anything serious. While most of us were pining for the Phaeton to make its way back to America, it wasn’t until Stefan Jacoby, president and CEO of Volkswagen America, made sure that our calls weren’t falling on deaf ears when he announced that the Phaetons will once again return to run on US highways.
In an interview with The Detroit News, Jacoby all but confirmed that the Phaeton, as well as a number of other cars from VW’s compact car (possibly the Polo) and SUV segment, would all be sold in the U.S. On the flip side, Jacoby hasn’t given a definite timetable for the Phaeton’s re-introduction to the US market, stopping short of saying that a return was imminent.
In any case, the word has finally come from the horse’s mouth, and for those who have been yearning for the Phaeton’s US comeback can now breathe easy.
