Volkswagen T Roc Cabriolet

O Volkswagen T-Roc, até agora produzido exclusivamente na Autoeuropa, em Palmela, ganha um novo local de produção, ainda que apenas dedicado à produção desta nova carroçaria.

A Volkswagen abriu o jogo em relação ao seu primeiro SUV cabriolet, seguindo a moda criada pelo Range Rover Evoque, com a administração da marca alemã a anunciar que vai mesmo fabricar o T-Roc em versão aberta. Não costumam ser histórias de sucesso.

Apesar da importância dessa versão dentro da família SUV da Volkswagen, a empresa garante que sua fabricação manterá os postos de trabalho nas instalações de Osnabrück. "Com o descapotável inspirado no T-Roc, vamos ter um modelo altamente emocional nesta gama", revelou o presidente da Volkswagen, Herbert Diess, em comunicado.

Volkswagen, marca de SUV?

Entre os vários modelos que estão na calha, destaca-se o VW T-Cross, um pequeno crossover urbano que será posicionado abaixo do T-Roc.

O anúncio do T-Roc Cabrio foi oficializado no rescaldo de uma reunião do Conselho de Supervisão do Grupo VW, e de acordo com os responsáveis do construtor alemão, a produção do novo automóvel não será na fábrica de Palmela, numa linha de montagem partilhada com o atual modelo, como seria de supor, mas na unidade de Osnabrück, na Baixa Saxónia alemã, que beneficiará de um investimento superior a 80 milhões de euros na sua modernização.

O novo Volkswagen T-Roc Cabrio é um dos novos SUVs que a Volkswagen planejou lançar no mercado de hoje até o ano 2020.

"Estou especialmente agradado por referir que podemos contar com as décadas de experiência da equipa de Osnabruque em conversíveis". O ano passado, esta fábrica produziu cerca de 76 mil automóveis.
