Starting the beginning of this year rumors about a pick-up from Volkswagen started to circulate all over the internet. Among other markets the "Robust" was supposed to also come on the European market. But due to high oil prices, Volkswagen announced this pick-up will not come to the European market.

A Volkswagen spokesman said an analysis showed there is no sufficient market for such a vehicle with a huge loading space and given the high oil prices, the overall conditions for such a Pick-up has "radically changed".

The pick-up was planned to be built at Hannover from 2010.

Robust will still be built, but at VW’s Argentinian plant in Pacheco and sold in emerging markets. The annual unit production of Pick-up Robust is planned at 90,000 units.

This one is so intriguing and interesting! Well, I hope that they would unveil soon the final outlook of this one. Moreover, I hope that it is not a hybrid vehicle instead they would use a powerful engine on it even an output.
