Volkswagen T-Cross Exports Commence to Mexico

Skoda Auto Volkswagen India has begun exporting the Volkswagen T-Cross SUVs, made in India, to other countries. The T-Cross is sold as the Taigun in the Indian market and is now sold in South American countries like Mexico.


Volkswagen on Thursday 10th Feb, shipped the first batch of 1,232 Volkswagen T-Cross SUVs to Mexico from the port of Mumbai.

In September of last year, Volkswagen introduced the Taigun, the Indian version of the T-Cross. In India, the compact SUV competes against the Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, and Skoda Kushaq, among others.

The T-Cross, also known as the Taigun SUV, is one of the first SUVs manufactured on the MQB-A0-IN platform to be exported from India. The T-Cross SUVs made in India are identical to the Taigun SUVs offered in the country.

Christian Cahn von Seelen, Chairman at Skoda Auto Volkswagen India, said, “The export of the Volkswagen T-Cross is a momentous event in the Group’s endeavour to engineer cars in India to be driven by the world! Developing India as an export hub for the VW Group globally, is an integral part of our India strategy.”


“The Volkswagen T-Cross built for the world on the MQB A0-IN platform exemplifies the excellence we pursue in all aspects of production, from technology and quality to design and performance. With this export milestone, we further strengthen our commitment to offering next generation vehicles to and from India,” Seelen added.

The T-Cross isn’t the first Volkswagen car built in India to be sold to other nations. The company began its export campaign in 2011 with the Vento sedan, which was designed specifically for the South African market. The export market for Skoda Auto Volkswagen India has developed since then. The ‘Made in India’ automobiles are currently sold in 61 nations across South America, Central America, Africa, the Indian Subcontinent, Southeast Asia, the Gulf Cooperation Council countries, and the Caribbean.
