A big surprise in the line of the next generation Volkswagen Passat. The Germans also plan to offer a sedan in an electric version.
De Nysschen did not say when the change would occur, but it is inevitable. The German automaker needs a change that will return the Passat to the top of sales in the United States. Indicators of collapse, credited to the account of the German model and registered in the context of falling popularity of sedans, frighten Volkswagen bosses. In 2012, the model was ordered by 117,023 customers, but last year only 14,123 units were sold.
The idea of abandoning conventional driving is not at all surprising, given that Volkswagen has launched an electric offensive by releasing its ID range. The production version of the ID Vizzion concept, presented in 2018 at the Geneva motor show, which is scheduled for release in 2022, may be a replacement for the Passat. The concept is based on the MEB platform developed by Volkswagen Group for its zero-emission models.
The concept was equipped with two electric motors, one on each of the two decks, which provided it with all-wheel drive and jointly developed 306 horsepower. The energy was stored in a 111 kW / h lithium-ion battery, which provided it with 665 kilometers of autonomy in the NEDC cycle.
