The Volkswagen Tarok pickup concept has innovative new features like a large variable loading area, which can be extended.

Volkswagen has succeeded in merging the practical advantages of the Tarok Concept with a lifestyle-oriented design. The avant garde pickup also has the potential to boost Volkswagen's model range in other global markets. 

The Volkswagen Tarok Concept has a very expressive design for a pickup, and merges practicality with a variable loading area concept
With its striking Targa-inspired roof bar, charismatic front end, three-dimensional LED lighting strip in the rear, and powerful yet stylish side panels, the Tarok Concept's expressive design makes it the first pickup to combine the stylistic elements of an urban SUVnwith an authentic off-road design.

One important design feature in the five-seater Tarok Concept is its variable loading area concept. The floor space can be extended by opening the tailgate or using the brand new mechanism that allows the bottom of the passenger cab rear panel to be folded down.

As a result, drivers can also use the back of the cab to transport extra-long items. Analogous to this variability, the maximum load is correspondingly high at around one tonne.

The interior indicates a new way forward for Volkswagen in the pickup segment, with its primarily digital design. Eye-catching elements include a colour-keyed crossbar that stretches across the entire dash panel. This crossbar surrounds a glass-covered infotainment system, digital air-conditioning controls and a Digital Cockpit, which together form the main cockpit elements with all displays and controls on a single visual and operational axis.

Volkswagen will soon be offering a series version of the Tarok Concept on the market in Brazil, with barely any changes. The Tarok Concept is powered by a 1.4-litre 147bhp four-cylinder TSI engine, combined with a six-speed automatic gearbox and permanent 4MOTION all-wheel drive. The future series model will start out with a 2.0-litre turbodiesel direct injection engine that also delivers 147bhp.
