Volkswagen’s New SUV Concept Features ‘Digital Operation’

Volkswagen is teasing a new SUV concept that it will reveal at the Beijing Auto Show at the end of April. 

The unnamed concept may be previewing what we will see in the next-generation Touareg, and Volkswagen says that it will be one of the most “advance luxury SUVs in the world.”

VW says that the concept will show off the “digitilization of the automobile,” including having fully digital operation and a completely “new level of interactivity.” Volkswagen says that it will merge the active info display and the infotainment system, likely with a large digitial dashboard like that seen in Audi’s latest products.

The SUV concept will use a plug-in hybrid powertain with 376 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque providing a fully electric range of up to 31 miles. That powertrain will hustle this SUV to 62 mph in 6.0 seconds.

Watch for more details on April 25-26.
