The Rabbit Pickup is known as the Caddy in other markets and is similar to the El Camino, Ranchero or Subaru BRAT models in that they are car based pickups. The idea for a pickup version of the Rabbit originated in the US and was built in Pennsylvania. The Volkswagen Rabbit Pickup parts are similar to the ones used on the mark 1 Rabbit. There were only four cylinder gas and diesel engine available with front wheel drive. The Rabbit Pickup was discontinued as general popularity of car based pickups declined, though used models are in demand today due to their practicality. Although Volkswagen has seen itself as a full line automaker, it has not offered a pickup truck style vehicle in the United States since.
