Volkswagen is bringing back The Scout, a former competitor of Ford Broncos and Jeeps discontinued over four decades ago.
Scout will become the signature EV SUV brand in North America, selling off-road-oriented electric trucks and SUVs.
Around 2026, a Scout SUV and pickup truck are projected to hit the market.
In a statement, Volkswagen stated, "The vehicles will be developed, produced, and manufactured in the US for American customers."
The Volkswagen Group plans the strong iconic U.S.-brand Scout into the electric vehicle space, establishing a separate company regarding this.
The prototypes will be shown next year, according to the business.
Volkswagen CFO Arno Antlitz stated that the Scout brand "shall be a separate unit and brand within the Volkswagen Group.
The Scout was the truck manufacturer's first entry into the passenger vehicle market, and it was built from 1961 until 1980.
