Volkswagen will have the world premiere of its new pickup concept, which fuses the features of a digitally networked SUV and the versatility of a pickup to form a new, urban-oriented vehicle, at the São Paulo International Motor Show on November 6.

One of the noteworthy innovations of this concept is the multivariable loading area: in just a couple of simple steps, it can be significantly extended thanks to the folding rear panel of the double cab.

The concept car is positioned below the Amarok, but is based on the modular transverse matrix (MQB), such as the successful Tiguan compact SUV. The world premiere of the all-wheel drive prototype coincides with the countdown to the launch of the series version: It will be launched – virtually unchanged – on the Brazilian market as early as 2020. However, according to Volkswagen, the potential of this new pickup is so high that it could also enhance the Volkswagen model range in other regions of the world.
