Volkswagen announced its to enter the pickup truck in fall 2009, at the IAA Commercial show in September. The unnamed was shown as a concept coastguard vehicle. It will be built in Pacheco plant in Argentina. markets for the pickup will be America, South Africa, and Australia. The model will be sold in Europe, but some there could wait for up to a before the model goes on

The pickup will be powered by engines according to market These will include a diesel for European models, of delivering 35 mpg on the European combined but VW was giving no further details. The likely choice would be the five-cylinder common-rail diesel used to power the VW Crafter van and available with power of 88, 109, 136, and 163 PS (65, 80, and 120 kW).

In 174-PS (128-kW) the engine is fitted to the entry-level VW SUV, so it is currently available a four-wheel-drive system. VW also this engine prepared for 5 emissions regulations. The Touareg conceivably be the source for some components, too.

The concept vehicle measured mm (204 in) long and featured a bed with an internal length of mm (61 in), but VW was giving little away. Details of chassis and were not available. But to be competitive, VW at least include double cab and cab models. For European markets, the will need to offer the 1000-kg (2205-lb) payload as its rivals.

Other new models on at IAA 2008 included the four-wheel-drive 4Motion, due on sale in November in markets only. The Caddy is smallest European cargo van on the Touran compact MPV (multipurpose platform. The drive system is with the Haldex clutch varying system familiar other VW Group four-wheel-drive This is capable of varying the drive torque split 0 and 100% according to need. will come from 105-PS (77-kW) 1.9-L unit injector turbocharged VW quotes European combined fuel consumption of 6.6 L/100 km and CO 2 of 172 g/km for the model.

Extensive modifications to the rear include the addition of a differential with the Haldex clutch mounted to it. Disc brakes, leaf springs, and dampers all modified to suit the supplementary drive. In addition, the rear of the has been raised by 50 mm (2 in) to accommodate the axle assembly. Cargo window van, and passenger-carrying Life variants of the Caddy will be available.

VW gave a suggestion of the approach the will take to Euro 5 technology for the Crafter, its largest cargo van. The Crafter concept vehicle was powered by five-cylinder, 2.5-L common-rail producing 109 PS. It was fitted with the high-roof long-wheelbase (4330-mm) and equipped with a range of VW quotes a European combined fuel consumption of 9.1 L/100 km, CO 2 emissions of 241 g/km—10% less emissions from a current powered by the 109-PS engine. The is paired with a six-speed transmission driving a high-geared axle with a ratio of

To reduce the effects of the Crafter’s frontal area, VW has used a radiator grille and rear spoiler to reduce aerodynamic Other energy-consumption-reducing measures regenerative braking. This is to charge the battery with overrun and braking energy. The can then reduce, or in some conditions eliminate, the charging from a permanently connected thereby reducing fuel

Another technology is a variable-control steering pump that operates when needed. To emissions to Euro 5 levels, VW has for selective catalytic reduction emissions control, injecting the AdBlue additive into the gases upstream of the catalytic A diesel particulate filter is fitted. VW claims NOx emissions of 43% compared with the standard
