Volkswagen planning CrossBlue Concept production image

The German based automaker is planning to put the CrossBlue Concept into production and the model might make its way onto the market sooner than you think.

After it was officially unveiled back in January, during the 2013 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit, the Volkswagen CrossBlue Concept is ending up in our news once again, this time with the carmaker planning to put it into production. The announcement has been made by Ulrich Hackenberg, a VW board member for product development, who said that the company is currently contacting dealers and customers in order to find out the potential of the large seven-seat SUV.

If the CrossBlue will eventually make its way into production, than the model will be assembled in Chattanooga or Mexico, but a new plant might be opened in the U.S. Michael Macht, a board member for VW, says Canada is not an option because the country is too far from the automaker’s supply base. The VW CrossBlue might become an important model for the carmaker and it could help the company double its sales by 2018 in order to become the world’s biggest automaker. Additional details on the CrossBlue and a final production version of the model remain unknown for the moment.
