Volkswagen team put 2019 Touareg to the ultimate challenge!
This is not a thing that you would see every day. A vehicle that has travelled tens of thousands miles in order to attend to its own world premiere? Piece of cake. Or, at least it is, for Volkswagen team. What has happened is that the latest Touareg was put to an ordeal – it has travelled from Bratislava to Beijing and as it seems has done it in such a way that astonished even sceptics. So, let's find out more, shall we?
For a total of three weeks the vehicle, along with the team has risen up to the challenge "Bratislava2Beijing" and has travelled through eleven countries – the starting point was the Volkswagen plant in Bratislava, where the Touareg machines have been manufactured for 16 years and has finished in Beijing by travelling through Slovakia, Austria, the Czech Republic, Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Russia, Kazakhstan, Mongolia and China.
Zietlow and his fellow team has driven throughout Europe and some parts of Asia and has put the Touareg to the ultimate test – it has travelled thousands of miles in temperatures that range from minus 23 to plus 21 degrees Celsius and has tackled down numerous road and off-road challenges. The journey to the world premiere in Beijing has took the team through the snow-covered Urals, past frozen Lake Baikal, Kazakhstan, the steppes of Mongolia and last, but not least, to the Inner Mongolia to the Middle Kingdom. The vehicle and the driving team are expected to arrive in Lisbon in about three days from today.
