Volkswagen Taigun SUV has been instrumental to the German carmaker's significant growth in the festive season this year. Volkswagen has reported a growth of around 50 per cent in October in terms of sales when compared to the same period last year.

Volkswagen has sold as many as 3,077 units of vehicles last month, compared to 2,054 units it sold in October last year. Though it may not be an even comparison to do given the effect of Covid-19 pandemic on the auto industry as a whole, Volkswagen's month-on-month sales performance has also improved significantly. Compared to 3,077 units sold in last month, Volkswagen had sold 2,563 units in September which is nearly an 18 per cent rise. In September last year, Volkswagen had sold just 2,026 units.

Ashish Gupta, Brand Director at Volkswagen Passenger Cars India, said, “We are excited with the immense love and wide acceptance that the Taigun has received from all our patrons. Within the first month of launching the Taigun, we have witnessed close to 50% growth in our overall sales volume in the month of October 21 vis-a-vis the same month last year. Considering the high demand for our carlines and with the ongoing industry-wide semiconductor shortage affecting the supply situation, we are working along with our dealer partners towards prioritizing deliveries to our customers. We would like to thank our customers for their trust in the brand Volkswagen, appreciate their patience and continued patronage."

2021 Taigun SUV was launched at a starting price of 10.49 lakh (ex showroom). The GT Line of Taigun starts at 14.99 lakh (ex showroom), going up to 17.49 lakh (ex showroom). It rivals the heavyweights in mid-size SUV segment like the Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, Skoda Kushaq and the newly-launched MG Astor among others.
