Volkswagen will stop selling Passat sedan in EuropeNovember 28, 2020
Volkswagen will stop selling Passat sedan in Europe. It is reported by the portal Automotive News Europe.
Recall that earlier a similar decision was made in relation to Passat for the American market, which is produced in Chattanooga, USA. According to the publication, sales of the Passat sedan in the European market may end in 2023.
In this case, the Passat in the station wagon will “live” until the next generation. The Volkswagen Group is speculated to want to stop sales of the Passat sedan in Europe because the Skoda Superb is taking sales from it due to its more practicality and hatchback layout.
The agency also noted that the updated Superb will target customers in Central and Eastern Europe, where sedans are still popular and the Passat station wagon should attract buyers from Western Europe. At the same time, of course, the main rival of the Passat is not its Czech counterpart, but SUVs.
That is why the German concern is going to focus on the production of SUVs and electric vehicles. In addition, Volkswagen plans to remove the Arteon from its lineup, which is currently offered in two body styles: liftback and Shooting Brake.
In addition, the cost of the new Volkswagen Golf Variant became known some time ago. It should be emphasized that this new German car
