VW Tarok Concept Breaks Cover, Previews Global Compact Pickup

Aesthetically, the Tarok builds on the updated VW pickup aesthetic established earlier this year by the Atlas Tanoak concept in ny, which in turn was a neat generation leap over the 2010-present Amarok global pickup truck they now produce.

While there is no news of the Volkswagen Tarok making it our shores, we think it could be VW's contender in the steadily growing lifestyle pickup segment in India that's now dominated by the Isuzu D-Max V-Cross.

The double-cab of the Tarok is suitably modern VW vehicle, with digital screens and car-like spec, the back seats can be folded down to extend the pick-up's flat bed lugging capacity, the front end is funky, there's a Targa-like roof bar and LED strip across the rear. Bischoff continues: "The Tarok's DNA adds an exhilarating dynamic to the segment". There is a strong probability for it as the press release stated that avant-garde pick-up has the potential to boost Volkswagen range in other global markets. Volkswagen confirmed at the event that they will offer series version of the concept in Brazil with little or no changes.

Payload for Volkswagen Tarok Concept is 1,000kg and has modern amenities such as digital instrument cluster and big infotainment screen. A six-speed automatic transmission and 4Motion permanent all-wheel drive distribute torque out to the wheels.

One of Tarok's cleverest design features is the adaptability of its loadbin area, which can be stretched from 1.2- to 1.8m in length. The bed itself is 1,206-mm long, but folding the rear seats down and opening hatch extends the space to 1,861 mm.

Said to be able to haul up to one tonne, the Tarok's tray can accommodate extra-long items if both the tailgate and rear bulkhead door are folded down. However, the production variant will rely on a 2-liter TDI diesel engine making 110 kW (150 PS).
