As you all know, production of the Amarok used to take place only in Argentina, but these rugged new pickups are also now assembled in Hanover, Germany.

The first right-hand drive Amarok to come out of a German factory has arrived in the United Kingdom and will be put to good used by the RSPCA. The animal care organization got one of the latest models, powered by the 2.0 BiTDI engine, now with 180 PS, and an eight-speed automatic gearbox as well as 4MOTION permanent all-wheel.

“The Amarok is a very impressive vehicle and we are privileged and proud to have the first one from the European production line.  Our staff are looking forward to the Amarok joining our fleet, and I assure you it will be put to very good use and tested to extremes,” Kevin Degenhard, Chief Inspectorate Officer of the RSPCA, who accepted Volkswagen’s invitation to the event in Hanover, said.

“At a time when incomes for charities are under pressure, we are delighted to support the RSPCA with the perfect off-road vehicle with plenty of traction, load capacity and towing power.  The RSPCA is often seen as another of the emergency services, and I know the Amarok will be working hard,” Alex Smith, Director of Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles in the UK said.
