At last year’s Tokyo Motor Show, Volkswagen unveiled its Cross Coupé concept, which was powered by a plug-in petrol-electric hybrid system. This week, a new version of the Cross Coupé is set to debut in Geneva, with an even more frugal plug-in hybrid drivetrain.
The concept now goes the diesel route, and the Swiss show car is powered by a combination of a turbodiesel direct-injection engine (TDI) and two electric motors, in total offering 306 PS of power.
Top speed for the 1,858 kg vehicle is 220 km/h, and the combined fuel consumption in the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC) is a sensationally low 1.8 litres per 100 km, or a staggering 55.5 km per litre, with just 46 g/km of C02 emissions. More details on the Cross Coupé redux, soon enough.
