Volkswagen gearing up for Taigun launch
Meanwhile, the company is also gearing up for the launch of the Taigun midsize SUV on September 23. The Taigun is the first VW model to be based on the heavily localised MQB-A0-IN platform and arguably the brand's most important product for India in quite a while. Following that, there will be an all-new sedan replacing the ageing Vento based on the same platform in 2022.
