Fuel Prices Kill Volkswagen
Robust Pickup For Europe
A spokesperson from VW's truck unit said market conditions had "radically changed", greatly reducing demand for the mid-size truck. The European version was scheduled to be built at the VW plant in Hannover, Germany.
VW is still planning to build 90,000 Robust pickups annually at its factory in Pacheco, Argentina, for developing markets in South America and Latin America. The truck is expected to have gasoline and diesel engine options.
