“It was important to choose a name that really embodied the nature of the car and the town of Taos, New Mexico was a perfect fit. It’s a small city that offers big things—from outdoor adventure to arts and design and great cuisine,” said Hein Schafer, Senior Vice President for Product Marketing and Strategy, Volkswagen of America, Inc.

The VW Taos will debut on October 13. Other than the teasers, VW hasn’t revealed too much information about the Taos, other than stating that it will “offer great value, excellent fuel economy, and great packaging, as well as advanced infotainment and driver-assistance features.”
