Under the new regulation passed by the Indian government, each foreign car manufacturer is entitled to importing 2000 units without local homologation. In Volkswagen’s case, the German car brand has utilized this opportunity to import 1000 units of Volkswagen T-Roc to India market via the CBU (Completely Built Unit) route.
Volkswagen T-Roc made its debut at the 2020 Auto Expo this year. The SUV caught the attention for the visitor thanks to its distinctive styling with robust design elements like large wheel arches as well as the coupe-ish roofline and sloping rear windscreen.
