VW registers new names for future crossoversDecember 27, 2019
Representatives of the German brand have applied for registration of the trade names T-Sport, T-Go, T-Coupe. Apparently, in the coming years will be presented even more compact crossovers from VW.
2020 will be a busy year for the German Volkswagen brand, as in Wolfsburg – there is the main headquarters of the company, 34 new models will be released. Ten of them will be crossovers and SUVs, including the already announced Nivus, which will go on sale in the second quarter of next year in Brazil, and then go to Europe by 2021.
New trademark applications have been discovered on the official website of the German Patent Office. From these documents, we can now learn a lot more about the three new models of the automaker.
The first of them will receive the designation T-Sport and, probably, is a crossover, since it corresponds to the similar nomenclature used in the designation of the current SUV models of the automaker – T-Cross and T-Roc. According to rumors, the aforementioned Nivus was named T-Sport before VW announced its final decision on the production of this car. So it will be interesting to know how the new product will be called in the end. Maybe the European version of the Nivus will be called the T-Sport? We just need to wait and see what comes of all this. The T-Coupe is likely to become a coupe-like crossover – apparently with this model it will be the same as with the VW Atlas model and its upcoming version of Atlas Cross Sport.
As for the T-Go, we get the feeling that this will be the smallest crossover from VW, maybe this will be called the serial version of the pint-sized Taigun concept, which was shown back in 2012! It was previously assumed that this car could be called the T-Track. We expect the ubiquitous MQB modular platform to serve as the basis for most of the new German brand models.
