Volkswagen India has no plans for new variant nomenclature

Volkswagen India has no plans for new variant nomenclature

For 2016, Volkswagen in China has started rolling out a new variant nomenclature for its car range. This new Audi-like badging style has been implemented in China with the introduction of the Passat Flagship. Naturally, it has got us all thinking whether this new variant nomenclature would be applied here in India as well. 

Volkswagen India, however, has revealed that the brand has no immediate plans to shift to the new badging style which usually comprises of a triple-digit figure followed by the familiar TSI/TDI badge.

Coming back to the Passat Flagship which introduces the new variant nomenclature for Volkswagen in China, the car is seen wearing a 380 TSI badge at the back even though it gets a 2-litre TSI engine which actually develops 220bhp. The reason for this odd labelling can be put down to the fact that it’s a new torque-based variant nomenclature specifically for Asian markets. While it will eventually replace the existing power-based system which is used globally, there is still some time for it to be implemented here in India on models like the Polo, the Vento and the likes.
