VW’s new full size crossovers will be produced in China
VW’s new full size crossovers will be produced in China

The new full-size VW crossovers based on CrossBlue and CrossBlue Coupe concepts will be assembled at the Shanghai-Volkswagen joint venture that has a new plant in Chinese city Changsha. The start of production is planned for 2015. Chinese Auto.sohu.com website shared some interesting information about two Volkswagen recent SUV concepts, CrossBlue and CrossBlue Coupe.

According to Auto.sohu.com, this two full-size SUV built on a modular MQB platform will go to a serial production by the end of 2015, and the Shanghai-Volkswagen plant built in Hunan Province will be the place to produce them. The planned capacity is 300.000 of vehicles per year. 

It’s still unclear if the new venture will assembly the new SUV exclusively for the domestic market or will also sell it internationally. The CrossBlue crossover was earlier positioned by VW as an American car for Americans. VW managers have stated that this vehicle, if the company’s CEO gives the project a green light, will automatically have a registration at one of the North American plants. 

Despite the fact that Chinese journalists don’t say what will be the final design of the CrossBlue models that will make it to the series, it’s absolutely clear that the seven seats version as well as five seat coupe versions will stay similar to their initial concepts and will unlikely be modified. The future of their advanced hybrid versions, to be truth, is still unclear. As we have ensured with other companies’ concepts, buyers should count on ordinary petrol turbo engines with all wheel drive and Haldex clutch.

According to Auto Sohu, the future Shanghai-VW plant will produce two new luxury models along with full-size crossovers. And if one of this luxury vehicles will be oriented to Chinese market, other one (business sedan with a VW511 code name) will most likely become global, thus filling the empty spot between the four-door Passat and Phaeton sedan. The 2015 year may seem very far from now, so let’s hope VW people don’t change their mind about these two amazing concepts.
