Volkswagen might build a small pickup and if they do it will be electric:

"Karl Brauer, executive analyst at iSeeCars.com, says VW is having more success in building its crossover lineup. He said introducing a pickup like the Tarok or Tanoak concepts probably proved too great a risk.

"Pickups are a completely unproven entity for them," Brauer said. "They could do a truck, and it probably wouldn't crash and burn, but given the investment and resources, investing into another [crossover] was probably safer."

Keogh, speaking to Automotive News in 2019 about the Tarok, said: "The question we have is, could something like this make sense, with modifications, in the U.S. market? The theory is quite straightforward: It's an A-segment-sized vehicle. There's no pickup truck in the U.S. market that is quite that size at all."

Too late- Lightning, CyberTruck, Maverick, Toyota, Nissan, Ram sooner or later, GM. VW doesn't have a pickup truck following like the others in NA, IMO.

Picture/rendering looks like a lifted Subaru Baja鈥

Looks aside, what @BlueDH said. Ford is king of that hill and their EV truck offering(s) thus far seem pretty compelling.

VW is WAY too risk adverse lately. This is why we don鈥檛 have the ID3 in America. I suppose diesel gate left their coffers a bit depleted 馃し馃徎鈥嶁檪锔

I think VW would have more sucess if they made a pickup version of the ID.Buzz than going for a traditional pickup to go against the likes of Ford and other truck makers.
