Volkswagen CrossBlue Coupe Concept Debuts at Shanghai Auto Show
What's New Volkswagen is unveiling the CrossBlue Coupe Concept at the Shanghai Auto Show, the second crossover concept the company has shown this auto show season. With 415 horsepower, Volkswagen says this plug-in hybrid concept would be capable of 79 mpg and could travel up to 21 miles on a full charge. This SUV shows a glimpse of the future of Volkswagen SUVs, with a powertrain that is both sporty and fuel-efficient. The turbocharged V-6 engine works in unison with two electric motors, giving the concept the ability to go from 0 to 62 in 5.9 seconds. The top speed hits 147 mph, with a top range of 720 miles. Even when running purely with the gasoline engine, the CrossBlue Coupe concept has an average mpg of 34.1. If produced, conventional four- and six-cylinder engines could make their way under the hood, as well as pure gas, diesel, and CNG engines. Who It's For For those seeking a mid-size SUV that is both sporty and eco-friendly can enjoy all that the Volkswagen CrossBlue Coupe Concept has to offer. The concept stands out with its distinctive character line, short A-pillar, and swept back C-pillar. Added to the 22-inch aluminum alloy wheels featuring a new design with V-shaped dual spokes, this concept SUV shines. Inside is an elegant and clean interior with soft Nappa leather in "Anthracite Pearl" and "Asphalto." Two-color ambient lighting matches the different drive modes of the vehicle, giving the CrossBlue another level of customization.
