2009 Volkswagen Pickup Concept

Volkswagen has revealed the fourth model in its commercial vehicle line-up with the debut at the 2008 IAA in Hanover this week of an all-new Volkswagen Pickup Concept.

Aiming to set new standards in the one-tonne pickup class, the new model will go into production at the end of 2009. It will be built at Volkswagen's 'Pacheco' plant in Argentina and introduced initially to markets in Europe, South America, South Africa and Australia.

The Volkswagen Pickup Concept is all-new in the Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles line-up and is the first commercial vehicle to be designed under Volkswagen Group design chief, Walter de Silva's command. As such it exhibits what is referred to as 'historical DNA', in other words design elements which link it to other group models and give it a distinctive yet familiar appearance.

2009 Volkswagen Pickup ConceptThe concept measures 5.18 metres in length and is 1.9 metres wide, and with four doors and four seats it is ideal for recreational or business use. The Volkswagen Pickup Concept also has the ability to take a standard-sized Euro pallet sideways in the flat cargo bed.

Únder the bonnet, new common rail turbodiesel engines will be used in the Volkswagen Pickup Concept to ensure it is powerful, yet clean and efficient and meets the necessary emissions requirements.

The Volkswagen Pickup Concept on show at the 2008 IAA has been designed for use as a 'Search and Rescue' (SAR) vehicle by lifeguards and was conceptualised following consultation with emergency services as well as in-house emergency vehicle specialists. As a result it features, among a host of other features, GPS, a multifunction touchscreen infotainment unit, CB radios, a number of chassis and all-wheel drive functions, a compass, flashlights, a defibrillator and binoculars. Life jackets, rescue buoys, fire extinguishers, blankets and a tool kit are also all incorporated. Whether the 'SAR' vehicle will go into production is not yet decided.
