Just last week, Volkswagen celebrated the 250,000th R model which was delivered to Switzerland. Now, there’s more news from VW’s sporty sub-brand.
Labelled as Volkswagen’s premium performance brand, R will gets its own showcase at VW dealerships in the future. There will be exclusive presentations in a lounge made of dark surfaces and quality details to highlight the brand’s exclusivity. The goal behind this is to improve customer awareness of the R-brand. The new initiative is already bearing fruits with orders already pouring into VW’s Lehrte dealership. The Hannover based dealer is the world’s first ‘R-seasoned’ Volkswagen dealership.
Following this, we will start to see more Volkswagen dealerships around the world include an R lounge of some sort!
Volkswagen’s R-brand now stretches across the Golf, Tiguan, Touareg and Arteon.
