2016 Beijing Motor Show: Plug-in hybrid Volkswagen SUV to be revealed

The 2016 Beijing Motor Show is nearly upon us and, according to reports, fans of electric vehicles are in for a treat. Volkswagen is reportedly scheduled to unveil its new plug-in hybrid SUV at the event, which is scheduled to take place at the end of the month.

Volkswagen, which infamously admitted to cheating on official diesel emissions tests, has revealed earlier this year that it is looking into expanding its range with more environmentally-friendly models. The new SUV will mark the start of a new era for the brand, which is still struggling to recover from its last year’s scandal.

Although much hasn’t been revealed about the vehicle, apart from a few details and teasers in the form of pictures, some are speculating that the car could be the Volkswagen Tiguan XL model.

The images released by the brand don’t reveal too much about the vehicle itself, however they definitely give us something to look forward to.

Believed to come equipped with an electric motor as well as a combustion engine, the car is reportedly capable of producing 375bph at 700Nm of torque. On top of that the car is currently believed to have an all-electric range of around 31 miles.

The car is said to be capable of reaching a top speed of 140mph as well as going from 0-62mph in a mere 6 seconds.

Expected to make its debut at the 2016 Beijing Motor Show later this month, we are probably going to get more images as well as detail about the car closer to the event.

From what we know so far, the vehicle is shaping up to be a solid car, which is exactly what Volkswagen needs at the moment. It’s still dealing with the scandal, which made headlines across the globe, so in order to get through it the brand needs to produce something truly spectacular.

Are you excited for Volkswagen’s new vehicle? How do you feel about the brand as a whole following the “Dieselgate” scandal? Let us know as we love hearing from our readers.
