The next-generation Volkswagen Touareg has been teased in video again, this time shorn of its remaining camouflage from its last on-screen outing. More visuals have been released in footage ahead of its global launch this week, and the undisguised form confirms that the large SUV wears a design language alike that on its Tiguan and Atlas stablemates.

The VW Group’s MLB Evo underpinnings will form the basis of the new Touareg, as it does on the like of the Audi Q7, Porsche Cayenne, Lamborghini Urus and Bentley Bentayga. The provision for a 48 V electrical architecture enables the use of technology such as rear-wheel steering and the latest in air suspension, though exact details will be known in due course.

Said technology will help the Touareg attain Volkswagen’s goal of pushing the large SUV further upmarket, where the aforementioned features will also be joined by the Innovision Cockpit, a new type of infotainment system. Upon launch, the next-generation Volkswagen Touareg can be expected to debut with a selection of petrol and diesel powertrains, while a plug-in hybrid version has also been tipped to join the model range.

The PHEV in question is likely to feature a powerplant related to the one in the T-Prime Concept GTE show car , which is the pairing of a 2.0 litre TSI engine with 248 hp/370 Nm with a 134 hp/350 Nm electric motor, built into an eight-speed transmission with integrated LSD; total system output from the concept was 375 hp and 700 Nm, with 50 km of all-electric range.
