[THE INVESTOR] Volkswagen Korea said on June 19 it will launch the gasoline-powered Passat midsize sedan next month in a move to revive sales that remain weak following the “diesel gate” emissions cheating scandal.

The German carmaker has set the price of its 2.0-liter gasoline sedan model at the mid and upper 30 million won (US$27,000) range to attract Korean customers, a company spokeswoman said by phone.

The vehicles will come with a host of driver assistance systems.

The Passat model previously available in Korea was mated to a 1.8-liter petrol engine. 

The upcoming gasoline-powered Passat sedan will be the third of five vehicles VW Group plans to launch in Korea this year as it maneuvers to regain customers‘ trust, which took a beating globally.
