Volkswagen announced that they will reveal a mildly modified version of the CrossBlue Coupe Concept during the Los Angeles Auto Show taking place between the 22nd of November and 1st of December.
Regarding its exterior appearance, the vehicle is very similar to the auto Volkswagen introduced during the Auto Shanghai Motor Show in April this year. However, it seems that the performance specifications have been severely modified, offering a drastically diminished driving autonomy.
This Volkswagen CrossBlue Coupe Concept is powered by the same type of system consisting in a turbocharged direct injection (TSI) V6 gasoline engine together with two electric motors. Nothing new up to this point, except for the estimated electric only driving range which dropped down to only 13 miles (20.9 Km) from a promising 20.5 miles (33 Km) provided by the vehicle`s initial version. Furthermore, the overall range also drastically lowered from 739 miles (1.190 Km) to 570 miles (917 Km).
Up to this point, the manufacturer did not offer any explanation for the downgraded performance, but mentioned that the LA spec concept is equipped with a 9.8 kWh lithium –ion battery while the version presented during the Auto Shanghai Motor Show is equipped with a 9.9 kWh one.
Concerning its exterior, the car measures 192.5 inches in length, 79.3 inches in width and 66.1 inches in height with a 117.3 inch wheelbase and rides on 22 inch aluminum alloy wheels with a matte finish on their inner surface shod with 285/ 40 tires.
The car comes with a grille unit surrounded by a high- gloss black frame, freestanding LED headlights and rear lights accentuated by an aluminum strip. The vehicle can carry up to 5 passengers and the cabin features a multitude of high scale materials such as Nappa leather in `Anthracite Pearl` or `Asphalto` for the seats, wood accents and various matte finish chrome surfaces.
