The VW Phaeton is said to come back to the US. Read on why and when!
According to Automotive News, Volkswagen has learned from the mistakes of its failed first attempt at selling a sub-$80,000 sedan in the U.S. The Phaeton has experienced healthier sales in Europe and in China, where the latest, redesigned model was revealed, but VW pulled it from the U.S. lineup after sluggish sales, with only speculative plans to return. Now, the Dresden-produced sedan may make a comeback.
Should VW stick to its word, we can expect the Phaeton’s comeback no earlier than 2013, when it’s due for a redesign, echoing an earlier report.
