VW CrossBlue’s production confirmed for 2016

Volkswagen has recently announced its plans to put the CrossBlue Concept into production in a couple of years.

The announcement has been made by the company’s CEO, Martin Winterkorn, during the 2014 North American International Auto Show. The VW CrossBlue Concept has been officially presented to the public during the 2013 NAIAS and its final production version will get a seven-seat arrangement, riding on the MQB platform and getting a variety of petrol and diesel burners under its hood, including four-cylinder units, in the United States, and not only. The final production version of the VW CrossBlue Concept will make its way onto the market in 2016.

The VW CrossBlue Concept is taking its power from a 3.0 liter V6 TSI engine, which is backed up by two electric motors, generating 53 HP (40 kW) and 113 HP (85 kW). The total output developed is 409 HP (305 kW) and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) of torque, sent to the front-wheel, rear-wheel or all-wheel drive though a 6-speed dual clutch transmission. The CrossBlue Concept can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.9 seconds and it can reach a top speed of 236 km/h (146 mph). Electric range stands at 33 km (21 mileS).
