Always keen to note the unusual, I was certain that this was not a Euro offering by VW.
And it turns out I had never heard of it before – and why would I? North America model only, but Wikipedia tells me more:
The Routan marked the start of Volkswagen‘s business strategy to offer additional vehicles specially developed for the U.S. market. The introduction of the 2008 model year minivan resulted from a partnership began in 2005 between Volkswagen and DaimlerChrysler. Prior to the agreement, Volkswagen had no minivan model for the United States or Canadian markets. The Routan is sold only in North America (U.S., Canada, Mexico).
