Leaked: Volkswagen CrossBlue Concept

Article by Christian A., on January 14, 2013

The first photos with the Volkswagen CrossBlue Concept emerged today on the web revealing a new car that Volkswagen will offer it in its lineup sometime in the future. Set to make its debut at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show, the new CrossBlue Concept will be slotted between the Tiguan and the Touareg and was designed especially for the United States and Canada.

Based on the new MQB platform, the CrossBlue is 4986mm (196.3 inches) long, 2014mm (79.3 inches) wide and 1732mm (68.2 inches) tall. As expected, it will offer enough room for four persons, although the concept version features just 6. Under the hood we find a TDI Clean Diesel engine delivering 190 hp but also two electric motors, one at the front wheels with 54 hp and one at the rear wheels with 148 hp.

The vehicle features a permanent all-wheel drive system and a DSG dual clutch automatic gearbox. Using just the 9.8 kWh lithium-ion battery, the CrossBlue Concept can act just like any other electric car on the market for 14 miles or almost 23 km. Using the engine, it offers a total range of 661 miles or 1,064 km. More details to be revealed when the car will make its official debut!
