The Volkswagen Cross Coupe TDI concept is powered by two electric motors and a turbodiesel petrol direct-inject engine (TDI). The new concept car’s combined fuel comsumption in the NEDC is 1.8 1/100 km; equal to 46 g/km CO2 emissions. The powerful SUV performance figures is: top speed 220 km/h, power of 225 kW/306 PS and a kerb weight of 1,858 kg.
The new VW Cross Coupe TDI features the new Modular Transverse Matrix (MQB) technologies from Volkswagen. The new technology includes certain design criteria that are standardized across model ranges and also variable parameters to make it possible to optimally and individually develop a wide variety of models. In the new VW Cross Coupe, for instance, the MQB front and rear suspensions, 140 kW / 190 PS TDI of the new EA288 engine series and a 6-speed DSG. They were merged with electrical components that are also “made by Volkswagen”, and they include the lithium-ion battery in the centre tunnel, front E-motor with 40 kW and rear E-motor with 85 kW.
In the term of efficiency and dynamic performance, the new VW Cross Coupe demonstrates a combination of fuel efficiency and exceptional dynamic. The car accelerates from 0-100 km/h in just 6.5 seconds and the TDI produces a torque of up to 400 Nm from approximately 1,600 rpm while the two E-motors produce 180 Nm of torque in front and 270 Nm at the rear. In pure electric mode the VW Cross Coupe, speed is limited to 120 km/h, can cover up to 45 km with zero emissions.
If the TDI is powering the vehicle by itself, the Volkswagen Cross Coupé is a pure front-wheel drive vehicle. In driving states in which greater fuel efficiency is possible by load boosting, the E-motors act as generators to charge the battery. When all of the on-board energy reserves are utilised, the vehicle’s combined fuel consumption value is 1.8 l/100 km; the vehicle’s 55 litre fuel tank thus enables a theoretical driving range of 1,287 km.
