Breaking News : Volkswagen Up NOT to be displayed at 2012 Auto Expo

It will be a breaking and a heartbreaking news for all the Volkswagen lovers. Their much anticipated India bound small car, VW Up will not be displayed at 2012 Auto Expo. The car maker has confirmed the launch of the small car in end 2013 or early 2014 but the company has made very clear that the car will not be displayed at the upcoming 2012 Auto Expo.

It also came as a surprise to us when the car maker earlier told that the small car will be displayed for the Indian market, when asked about the same, the officials said, it was planned to be launched in 2013 end but was to be displayed at the 2012 Auto Expo. However, the car maker said the India bound VW Up will be completely different from that seen at earlier global Auto exhibitions. The company officials said that India bound Up will be more exciting and will be tailor made for the Indian market looking at the cost benefits and demands of the common masses.

Seems like the VW group including Skoda, Audi and VW itself are not willing to make the information out to the common masses. Remember, the  name change from Skoda Rapid to Lauretta and then back to Skoda Rapid. The car maker seems to be taking steps with caution after the alliance broke up with Suzuki.

If we believe the company officials, the car is not coming to 2012 Auto Expo, but then what was the car doing in New Delhi and that too being towed away by the Lifting machines ?
