Volkswagen CrossBlue Coupé at the Auto Shanghai 2013
SUV world premiere -- the new CrossBlue Coupé
World premiere of CrossBlue Coupé in Shanghai:
Volkswagen presents high-tech plug-in hybrid SUV
305 kW / 415 PS CrossBlue Coupé consumes just 3.0 l/100 km of fuel
Volkswagen plug-in hybrid SUV can cover up to 33 km in all-electric mode
Wolfsburg / Shanghai, 19 April 2013 - At the 2013 Shanghai Auto Show,
Volkswagen is giving the public a spectacular glimpse of the future - and
of a new SUV design era - in presenting the world premiere of the CrossBlue
Coupé. Klaus Bischoff, Head of Design for the Volkswagen Brand: "The
disproportionately high growth in the SUV segment gives us designers the
opportunity to implement an even stronger diversification of models. In the
CrossBlue Coupé we are showing the potential of our Volkswagen design DNA.
This concept vehicle will undoubtedly have an influence on future SUV
models." The Head of Design continues: "The CrossBlue Coupé lives by a
harmonious triad: rugged in appearance, sporty in proportions and showing a
reserved elegance in its sculptural shapes and lines." Oliver Stefani, lead
designer for the project on Klaus Bischoff's design team: "A highlight is
the front-end design of the CrossBlue Coupé. The established theme of
horizontal lines as a brand signature is perfected by complete integration
of the headlights. Distinctive chrome accents in the lower area emphasise
the SUV character of the CrossBlue Coupé and are intuitively perceived as
corresponding to the upper grille."
Dynamic sports car performance. The CrossBlue Coupé is powered by a
plug-in hybrid system that is as fuel efficient as it is sporty. A V6 turbo direct petrol injection engine (TSI)
works together with two electric motors here; maximum system power is as
much as 305 kW / 415 PS. When the car's full power potential is utilised,
the SUV becomes a sports car: The Volkswagen accelerates to 100 km/h in a
mere 5.9 seconds, and its maximum speed is 236 km/h.
Fuel efficiency of a compact. Despite its impressive dynamic performance,
the CrossBlue Coupé has a combined fuel consumption of just 3.0 l/100 km
(in the new European driving cycle or NEDC). Even in hybrid mode fuel
consumption (sub-cycle with discharged battery powered by just the TSI
drive), the SUV - which is nearly 4.9 metres in length - consumes just 6.9
l/100 km of fuel. This value enables a theoretical range of around 1,190
kilometres (with a fuel tank capacity of 80 litres) before the car needs to
Zero emissions in the city. The CrossBlue Coupé can be driven in
all-electric mode, i.e. without any emissions at all, over a distance of up
to 33 kilometres (at a maximum speed of 120 km/h). To intentionally use
this especially eco-friendly mode in urban areas, the driver can push a
button to select the all-electric drive mode. As a production vehicle, the
concept vehicle - which is based on the new modular transverse matrix (MQB)
- could also be fitted with conventional drive systems (four and
six-cylinder engines) configured for a wide variety of fuels (petrol,
Comfort of a premium class SUV. This Volkswagen, equipped with five
comfortable seats and a boot that can hold up to 1,101 litres of luggage,
depending on the configuration, belongs to the SUV avant-garde, both
technically and visually. The CrossBlue Coupé is also one of the safest
SUVs worldwide thanks to the electronic stabilisation programme, an
all-wheel drive with "propshaft by wire" that is engineered for dynamic
performance and safety and up to ten airbags.
