At the 2014 Auto Expo in New Delhi, India the German automaker Volkswagen is showcasing a slightly updated version of the Taigun concept which is a follow-up to the original concept unveiled back in 2012 in Brazil at the Sao Paulo Motor Show. Aside from the fresh orange paint, the main difference between the two concepts would have to be the spare wheel mounted at the back on the outside. The vehicle sports a 2470mm wheelbase while the overall length stands at 3859mm if we include the aforementioned spare wheel. It’s 1728mm wide and has a 1570mm height or 1605mm if we take into account the roof rails.
The trunk has a load width of 990mm and can accommodate 280 liters of cargo or 996 liters if you fold down the rear seats. Motivation is provided by a 1.0-liter TSI 3-cylinder gasoline turbocharged direct-injection engine outputting 110 HP at 5,000 rpm and a maximum torque of 175 Nm from 1,500 rpm. The 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint takes 9.2 seconds while the stop speed stands at 115 mph.
The Volkswagen Taigun concept weighs only 998 kg and is capable of returning 50 mpg US which means it can travel for approximately 621 miles thanks to its 50 liter fuel tank.
