Volkswagen has registered the names T-Sport, T-Coupé and T-Go to the German patent office, these could be the names of three of the twelve new SUVs expected during 2020.
Volkswagen is ready to start 2020 characterized by many innovations, with the launch of 34 new models, 12 of which will be SUVs.
Three names registered with the German patent office
As reported by the VWVortex.com website, we can get an idea of what three of the new SUVs will look like thanks to the names that have been chosen by Volkswagen: T-Sport, T-Coupe, and T-Go. These three names were in fact recently registered with the German patent office and, although the documents did not state what they will be used for, they perfectly follow the nomenclature of the new SUVs and crossovers of the German company, namely T-Cross and T-Roc.
For the moment, being able to play only with imagination on these names, we can assume that the Volkswagen T-Coupé takes the form of an SUV-Coupé. Just think of the Atlas and Atlas Cross Sport models recently launched in the United States to get an idea of the car that could hide behind the name T-Coupé, with a sloping roofline and sloping from the central pillar towards the tail.
Volkswagen T-Sport and T-Go
Turning to the other models, the T-Sport offers fewer holds and could be several things, including a European version of the Nivus that is about to be launched in South America or a new model to be opposed to the Audi A1 Citycarver. As for the T-Go, the most plausible hypothesis linked to the name is that it is a compact crossover designed for the city.
They will take advantage of the MQB platform
Some of these vehicles will be built on the Volkswagen Group’s versatile MQB platform, which is the basis of a large number of cars of the brands that are part of the German manufacturer, from Golf 8 to Skoda Superb via Seat Tarraco. On some of the new Wolfsburg models, electrification could also play a role, even if that will be almost completely addressed, as already defined, to the expansion of the Volkswagen ID range.
