2011 Touareg Hybrid Price Not Popular

It turns out I’m not the only one who is concerned with the stratospheric pricing of the 2011 Touareg Hybrid. Take a look at what RideLust had to say:

It looks like VW is again pricing the 2011 Touareg beyond the reach of the masses, especially in hybrid form. The Touareg Hybrid, Autoblog tells us, will sticker at $61,385 before you begin adding options to it. Sure, that’s 10% less that the Porsche Cayenne Hybrid, but no one expects a Porsche to be sensibly priced.

They hit the nail on the head, of course. No one expects a Porsche to be reasonably priced. Porsches are sexy beasts; they’re exotic. Volkswagen makes Punch Buggies and Jettas. They make the ultimate teenage girls’ cars. No one wants a $60k Volkswagen.
