Volkswagen released a few teaser images for the Beijing Concept luxury SUV to be revealed at the Beijing auto show next week. The vehicle—which Volkswagen says previews its direction with SUVs—demonstrates both the continued digitalization of the automobile, as well as a performance-oriented plug-in hybrid powertrain.
The plug-in-hybrid powertrain delivers 376 hp total output and 516 lb-ft (700 N·m) of torque, with an all-electric range of up to 50 km (31 miles). Predicted NEDC combined fuel consumption is 78 mpg (3 l/100 km), and the concept accelerates from 0 to 62 mph in 6.0 seconds and has a top speed of 139 mph (224 km/h)
Volkswagen says that the digital operation and display system enables a new level of interactivity.
