VW (Chrysler Built) van named Routan
Volkswagen’s version of Chrysler LLC’s minivans will be named Routan, the German automaker said Wednesday. The Routan minivan will be unveiled at the Chicago auto show in early February. Routan is a name Volkswagen created by joining the word “route” with the “an” suffix used in the names of VW’s European minivans, the Touran and Sharan.
The Routan is the product of a deal signed by VW and Chrysler nearly two years ago to give VW a version of Chrysler’s redesigned minivans, which went on sale last year.
The Routan will be built alongside the Chrysler Town & Country and Dodge Grand Caravan minivans at Chrysler’s assembly plant in Windsor, Ontario. The Routan will go on sale later this year.
