Volkswagen has unveiled the Tarok pick-up concept at the São Paulo International Motor Show in Brazil. Although its a concept, VW says that a series production version will soon be offered for the Brazilian market “with barely any changes”.

The “avant-garde pick-up” as Volkswagen likes to call it, has some new design elements. Speaking of which, there is a Targa-inspired roof bar, three-dimensional LED lighting strip at the rear, and sharp character lines on the side profile.

The interiors are interesting too. There is a colour-keyed crossbar in Cypress Metallic that stretches across the entire dash panel, glass-covered Infotainment system, and a Digital Cockpit.

As we can see in one of the pictures here, the Tarok has a through loading feature where the bottom of the passenger cab rear panel can be folded down for a completely flat floor space.

The Tarok will be powered by a 1.4-litre 110 kW / 148 bhp 4-cylinder TSI engine, which can be driven in Brazil as a TotalFlex Fuel Unit both with pure ethanol (E100) as well as a gasoline-ethanol blend (E22). Transmission is a 6-speed automatic which sends power permanently to the all four wheels via 4MOTION AWD system.

At a later date, there’ll also be 2.0-litre turbo diesel on offer, which also produces 110 kW / 148 bhp. As for launching in other markets, VW doesn’t seem to have decided yet, however, the company believes that the pick-up has the potential to boost their model range in other global markets as well.
