Volkswagen T-Rug: Should Land Rover Worry?

By  | 

Volkswagen will have to do a lot to recover from the whole diesel scandal and it does look like they are doing everything they can as new reports suggest that they are looking to launch a new model that would come in to compete with the Land Rover Defender.

According to AutoBild, the vehicle will come riding on the MEB platform and is currently called the Volkswagen T-Rug model. The report also added that it will come with two body styles, a three-door, and five doors and that it would come with a rugged exterior design.

It is said that this new model will come in 2022 if Volkswagen ends up giving it a green light for production but since there is nothing from Volkswagen yet, it is best to take it all with a pinch of salt for now.

Are you looking forward to see a Land Rover Defender rival from Volkswagen?
