While it is true that VW will be missing an opportunity, the bean counters will probably have decided that the size of the opportunity from RHD markets (UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, India, etc) is not big enough when compared to the rest of the world.
But bean counters don't always get it right. Mercedes-Benz did it recently, with its compact SUV - what is now called the GLC used to be the GLK and was not available in RHD. This, despite the fact that the compact SUV market exploded bang in the middle of the product's lifecycle!

So this is also my concern. Maybe a bit OT and may have been covered in another thread, but I have also been unable to get a response from ARAI and VW India about how the emissions issue is being handled here .

Any inputs from the group are most welcome.
