Despite several recent conflicting reports, spy photographers caught Volkswagen’s upcoming pickup in the United States.

Rumour currently has it that VW won’t be selling its Nissan Navara rival in Europe. However, other sources have stated that it will be available in certain parts of Europe but it won’t be built in Hannover, Germany, as originally planned.

Instead, all production will take place in Pacheco, Argentina.

Volkswagen is apparently planning on building about 90 000 units annually for South American and developing markets.

The “Robust” name is just a working codename which will most likely be changed before the market launch in the end of 2009.
