If reports are to be believed, Volkswagen is said to have exhausted all its stock of the Tiguan SUV in India for 2017. From the time it was launched in India this year, Volkswagen has reportedly sold all the 800 units of the Tiguan to customers across the country. This also means that customers wanting to purchase the Tiguan will have to wait till next year to get their hands on one.
Launched earlier this year in the month of May, prices for the Volkswagen Tiguan start at INR 27.68 lakh for the base Comfortline variant and go up to INR 31.05 lakh for the top-end Highline variant (all prices, ex-showroom, Mumbai). Based on the company’s MQB platform, the new Tiguan SUV is manufactured at Volkswagen India’s plant in Aurangabad.
