The company describes the concept as a “premium SUV’ and it will release the concept under its VW brand – even though Volkswagen as another premium electric SUV, although all-electric, coming out under its luxury brand: Audi.

The automaker released a list of features (see below), including an estimated NEDC-rated range on all-electric of 31 miles (50 km). As usual, the NEDC cycle is rarely representative of real-world range, which should be closer to ~20 miles in this case.

  • The vehicle further demonstrates Volkswagen’s continued digitilization of the automobile
  • Digital operation and display system enables a completely new level of interactivity
  • Active Info Display and infotainment system merge
  • More than ever, the lounge-style interior and digitized operation are centered on passengers
  • SUV has a plug-in-hybrid powertrain with 376 horsepower total output and 516 pound-feet of torque
  • The fully electric range of the SUV is up to 50 kilometers or 31 miles
  • The predicted NEDC combined fuel consumption is 78 mpg
  • The concept accelerates from 0 to 62 mph in 6.0 seconds and has a top speed of 139 mph
