VW will introduce a new small crossover in 2022July 23, 2019
By 2022, the German mark will complete all the work on its new compact crossover. It is reported that the novelty will be collected at the facilities of the brand in Spain. The machine will be offered with hybrid and electric motors.
It seems that Volkswagen will not stop expanding its global line of crossovers / SUVs in the near future. Earlier this month, it was confirmed that instead of the funny city car Beetle, the Tarek crossover will be assembled – the car will be intended mainly for the North American market. Now there is evidence that the German brand is planning to create another compact off-road model.
It is reported that the mass production of new items will be established in Spain at the Volkswagen plant. The automaker plans to release a new CUV based on the Polo model in the second half of 2021, and the start of sales is scheduled for 2022. It is possible that the car will be exclusive to the European market, at least initially.
According to the information received, the new model will share its fundamentals with the Polo compact sedan / hatchback and the T-Cross crossover, which means that it will be built on the basis of the MQB modular platform, and we suspect that it will become very similar to the Taigun crossover concept.
Our source claims that the as-yet-unnamed sports crossover will be a “sports urban CUV” with hybrid and all-electric powertrains.
“Due to the fact that in our new model the same mechanical platform will be used as in the models produced at the plant in Spain, we can use the same production lines for the crossover as for the Polo and the T-Cross crossover . The novelty will receive a competitive price,” – commented Andreas Tostmann, member of the executive committee of the VW brand for production and logistics.
