Volkswagen CrossBlue Concept

At the 2013 Detroit Motor Show Volkswagen has revealed the CrossBlue Concept, a six-seat, five-meter long SUV specifically targeted to USA and Canada and with an efficient hybrid powertrain.
The CrossBlue could anticipate a future production model, that would offer a seven-passengers capacity and would go on sale in the North American market.
The concept is based on VW’s Modular Transverse Matrix (MQB) which allows to implement different dimensional parameters including the wheelbase (2,980 mm), track widths and wheel sizes as well as a wide range of drivetrains – gasoline, diesel, natural gas, hybrid and electric.
