Ho Chi Minh CityThe 7-seater SUV model imported from the US is being deposited at the dealer, expected to be launched in July 2021.
Many Volkswagen sales consultants in Ho Chi Minh City said that the three-row model Teramont (another name Atlas) is about to be sold in Vietnam. Dealers have now received deposits from customers to prioritize early delivery. The specific price and how many versions of the Volkswagen Teramont are not yet available.
A source of the company said that the US-imported model is in the final stages of registration. “If everything goes well, the epidemic is not too complicated, the car can be launched in early July,” this person said.
The German automaker in early 2021 said it would bring back Teramont and T-Cross to expand the product range, but did not say a specific time. Thus, Teramont will be a new test of Volkswagen, positioning itself as its largest and most expensive product in Vietnam.
Teramont in the US market is known by the name Atlas. The car has many different variants with prices from 31,555 USD. The car has two engine options: 2-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder, capacity of 235 horsepower, maximum torque of 350 Nm. The second is a 3.6-liter V6 with a capacity of 276 horsepower and maximum torque of 360 Nm. Both come with an 8-speed automatic transmission, front- or four-wheel drive.
VW Teramont entering Vietnam market will compete with rival Ford Explorer also imported from the US. Exlorer price from 2 billion. Hyundai dealers are quietly selling Palisade for about 2.65 billion VND but limited to a few customers.
VW’s most expensive model in Vietnam is the Tiguan Luxury S version, priced at VND 1,929 billion.
