VW News: Brand New 2015 Volkswagen TDI Models Back On Sale

Recommended Posts

If the Volkswagen diesel emission scandal hasn't swayed you from wanting one, then you'll be happy to hear Volkswagen will once again be able to sell brand-new 2015 model year TDI models. Green Car Reports says near 11,000 TDI models will soon be back up for sale once they are updated with new software, making them legal.

Volkswagen does caution those interested in picking up a new TDI to call their nearest dealership to see if they have any in stock.

But that's not all. Volkswagen is offering some massive discounts on these models. CarsDirect reports that Volkswagen is offering 0% APR for up to 72 months and $5,000 cash bonus if you decide to buy. Interested in leasing one? Volkswagen will offer a cash bonus of $8,500. 

There are a couple of caveats to this offer. First, you need to have an excellent credit history to qualify for either offer. Second is that Volkswagen isn't advertising this offer.

"We will not be advertising the available incentives from our financing arm as they [sic] vehicle availability will vary per dealership," said Volkswagen spokeswoman Jeannine Ginivan.

So by word of mouth they will dump the Diesels on the market and call it good. Good offers if you can find one that meets your needs. Wonder where the bulk of the diesels are?

I just checked autotrader and I didn't see anything available yet. I see the golf wagons that are TDI's but I feel like they have been there for awhile...

You do not have to have excellent credit to get these deals. That's a load of BS.

Also, not all dealers are giving up this cash. Ours is selling for MSRP or bust. We'll see how that works out.

From what I gathered, Boston/ New York area.

 

And most will not be selling for those prices.....we have a local one here that is only a grand off MSRP.......

:huh: That makes no sense considering they are a couple years old and have been sitting. Nope if they want me to consider buying one, then 10K off to start.

Oh, I'd totally agree....they need quite the markdown to get me to even think about it.....

But I get the feeling dealerships will take advantage though....

I wouldn't mind a nicely loaded Passat TDI for those deals.

 

Right color, right price could talk me into one.....8)

My friend Aaron got a very good deal on a 2015 TDI wagon.  I still miss mine, sold it back about 7 weeks ago.

It got 58 Miles per gallon on a highway trip right before I sold it back...

As far as the older TDI's go, a bunch have been coming through flattened on flat bed trucks at a towing lot near my daughters school. TDI Cup Jetta, Beetle Covnertible, several other interesting older Vee dubs flat as a pancake...

Ya mean they actually crushed them? Wonder if they were models that could not be fixed cheaply.

None of the first gen models have the ad Blue and will not be able to be repaired easily.  methinks VW may well crush up to about half of what it is buying back...they are not going to fix and resell a car that is 7 year sold with 100,000 plus miles on it.

Interesting, yea I would agree that if an auto has 100K miles on it and needs more than a software flash upgrade, it is not worth it so recycle the auto.

The last thing VW needs right now is more legal liability.

Back on topic, I know of several people who have bought these new 2015's.  My wife brought up finding a 2015 TDI Beetle manual for her to drive, i may look at one...still wildly unsure of what I want to replace the Jetta with.

Ah okay. I thought you were looking for as close to a Jetta TDI replacement as possible.

      The U.S. Security and Exchange Commission has filed suit in San Francisco on Thursday alleging that from April 2014 through May 2015, Volkswagen fraudulently issued more than $13 Billion in bonds and securities in the U.S. market.  During that time, the SEC alleges that Winterkorn and other senior management knew about the problem with over 500,000 diesel vehicles that exceeded legal emissions limits. 
      The suit says:
      Winterkorn resigned within days of the scandal braking in 2015. 
      Volkswagen said in a statement that the lawsuit is "legally and facturally flawed" and "the company will contest it vigorously".
      Volkswagen has already agreed to pay more than $25 billion in a settlement over the dieselgate scandal to buy back defective vehicles, paying fines, and setting up funds to help build out electric vehicle infrastructure. Winterkorn has already been charged in the US.

      Volkswagen has announced it will cut between 5,000 to 7,000 jobs through attrition and early retirement at its headquarters in Wolfsburg, Germany.  Most of the job cuts will be administrative staff.  While cutting those job, VW will be creating 2,000 new software and electronics jobs.  The cuts are part of a cost savings plan to drive 3€ Billion in annual savings by 2020 and 5.9€ billion  by 2023. 
      The move comes the day after the company announced it will increase its EV plans to build 22 million units over the next decade.  Electric vehicles are less complex to build and require fewer workers.
      Volkswagen is building a new EV platform and the first vehicle to arrive on the market will be the I.D. Neo, expected sometime in 2020.  The I.D. Neo will be built at a plant in Zwickau, Germany.  Future electric vehicles will be built in 7 additional factories including Chattanooga, Tennessee.

      Volkswagen has announced they are increasing their goal to build fully electric vehicles from 15 million to 22 million over the next decade. The company is moving to electric vehicles after a disastrous diesel emissions cheating scandal hit sales and resulted in record breaking government fines, and European and Asian government impose new restrictions on carbon dioxide emissions.
      The core Volkswagen brand saw profits fall, while the overall company profits rose 6% to 12.2€ Billion.
