As an innovation, Volkswagen do Brasil presents a variable loading area concept with the Tarok Concept. The floor space can be enlarged not only by opening the tailgate, but also using a newly developed mechanism for folding down the bottom of the passenger cabin rear panel. This means that the rear part of the cab can also be used to stow very long items, for example. Analogous to this variability, the maximum load is correspondingly high at just over one tonne.
The width of the loading area between the wheel arches is 1,090 mm; its side panels are very high at 600 mm. The loading area of the pick-up is 1,206 mm long in the standard configuration. When the tailgate is open, the loading area is extended by 695 mm. In addition, the single-level loading area can be extended by a further 655 mm as outlined above by opening or folding down the cabin rear panel and folding the three rear seats. This creates an overall length of 2,775 mm, surpassing even pick-ups in the next highest class. The rear seats are unlocked and folded in a compact manner using a mechanism that is quick to operate. The rear panel is then locked from the inside via an electrically operated lock. A sealing system ensures that the enclosed interior is optimally protected against moisture.
