New Tiguan generation: Volkswagen’s bestseller celebrates world premiere in front of 10,000 employees
Even before the official media unveiling, Volkswagen this morning presented the new Tiguan to some 10,000 employees at the works meeting in and around Hall 11 at the Wolfsburg plant. The Tiguan is one of the most successful Volkswagen models of the present day and is therefore of particular importance to the company: Since it went on sale in 2007, 7.6 million units have been produced – almost one million of them in the past two years. Since 2018, the Tiguan has been the bestselling model of not only Volkswagen Passenger Cars but also the Volkswagen Group. The new, third generation of the bestselling SUV will roll off the assembly line in Wolfsburg from fall 2023 and come onto the market in the first quarter of 2024. With its familiar compact dimensions, the Tiguan combines progressive technologies with charismatic design.
