Among them will be a replacement for the Polo hatchback, a small SUV and a couple of premium offerings. Read on for more information regarding upcoming new Volkswagen Cars in World.

Upcoming New Volkswagen Cars in World

New Passat Hybrid

Volkswagen World has launched the new Passat in World. The new Passat makes its Worldn market debut with the tried and tested 2.0 Litre Diesel engine. VW could even follow in the footsteps of Honda and launch the new Passat in its hybrid avatar in the coming months. However, unlike the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord, the Passat GTE is a plug in hybrid. Which means, the battery pack can either be charged through a regular power socket or the petrol engine that powers the sedan. A 1.4 L TSI petrol engine combines with the electric power for a total output of 218 hp and 400 Nm. While the new Volkswagen Passat World launch will happen in 2017, we’re expecting the Passat GTE launch to take place early next year. The Passat GTE was present at the Auto Expo 2016.
