It’s getting increasingly hard to monitor all models Volkswagen has in its ever-growing portfolio, not just because of the sheer measure of models, yet in addition because of their territorial availability. You’re most likely mindful of the organization’s excessively intricate Chinese setup, however VW also has several vehicles sold distinctly in specific parts of the world. The Nivus will be one of them as the modest crossover created in Brazil and bound to be sold locally will head out to Europe in 2021 where it will also be delivered.
Subsequently, the VW Nivus is formally out. The sub-minimized SUV-roadster is the first Volkswagen model created in South America, one that will be delivered and sold even in Europe. It is basically the roadster version of the VW T-Cross, which India will get as the VW Taigun.
The VW Nivus is generally the size of the VW Taigun. It measures 4,266 mm long, 1,757 mm in width and 1,493 mm in stature. It has a 2,566 mm wheelbase. The boot space of the VW Nivus is 415 liters. The low, falling roofline and the rakish back glass are the biggest attractions of this model’s design. 17-inch compound wheels and articulated bumper flares supplement the vehicle’s dug in stance.
Driven headlamps with LED DRL, LED fog lamps, LED rear combination lamps, Active Info Display completely digital instrument cluster, VW Play touchscreen infotainment system (Volkswagen-first) with wireless Apple CarPlay, wireless Android Auto and 10GB inward memory, and so on are some of the salient features of the VW Nivus.
In Brazil, Volkswagen will offer the Nivus with the EA211 1.0-liter TSI turbocharged three-chamber petrol engine in a bi-fuel petrol-ethanol version. Running on ethanol, the flex-fuel engine produces 128 PS of most extreme force and 200 Nm of greatest force. Assuming that this is the same engine offered in the VW Polo in the nation, the greatest force and most extreme force accessible when running on petrol are 116 PS and 200 Nm respectively. A 6-speed programmed transmission will be standard.
Volkswagen will produce the Nivus at the Anchieta plant in Sao Bernardo do Campo, Brazil first. The organization plans to launch it in Brazil in the coming weeks, thus, it will start the series creation at this plant soon. From 2021, it will fabricate the Nivus in even Europe, where it plans to lead the launch in the second 50% of one year from now.
The VW Nivus is based on the MQB A0 platform and not destined to India. In any case, a VW Taigun Coupe is something that could be in showrooms someday, if there is sufficient interest.
