2019 Volkswagen Atlas SUV Concept, Release Date, Changes – The 2019 Volkswagen Atlas SUV and crossover market is all about as jam-packed because it could be and yet automakers still figure out how to cram still another model into the mixture. A more compact version of the Atlas we had been introduced to it claims to provide a footprint on the highway with seating. Naturally, this particular market is filled by the Tiguan. Therefore there is a bit of confusion, but maybe not. See the Touareg will not be offered in the U.S. after 2018, so the seven-seater Atlas will become the range-topping “luxury” model although the 2019 Volkswagen Atlas 5 Seater will take its location over the Tiguan. We don’t know much but let’s talk a little bit more about it.
2019 Volkswagen Atlas SUV Concept
Described as a “near-production concept,” that the Atlas Cross Sport should provide a pretty good indication of the actual production version that’s scheduled to reach the US market next year. At 190.8 at (484.6 cm) long, 79.9 at (202.9 cm) wide and 68.3 in (173.5 cm) tall, and the concept is 7.5 in (19 cm) shorter and 1.3 in (3 cm) lower compared to the Atlas, however, 2 in (5 cm) more full, leading to a sportier stance from the couple-like profile. The Cross Sports theory makes use of that V6, but that is supplemented with two electric motors mounted rear and front which are powered by an 18-kWh ion battery located in the center tunnel.
The front engines creates 54 hp (40 kW) and 162 lb-ft (220 Nm) of torque, while the back attracts 114 hp (85 kW) and 199 lb-ft (270 Nm) into the desk. VW states this ends in a plug-in hybrid drivetrain generating 355 hp and also 494 lb-ft (670 Nm) and carrying the automobile from 0 to 60 mph (96.5 km/h) in 5.4 seconds, on the road to a top speed of 130 miles (209 km/h).
The concept of 2019 Volkswagen Atlas SUV :
- All-electric “E-Mode” would offer 26 miles of range on a full charge, with the V6 engine decoupled from the engine by disengaging the clutch and all of the power supplied from the 114-hp motor at the rear axle.
- “Hybrid” mode sees the V6 and the rear electric motor engaged depending on the driving situation and both electric motors acting as generators to charge your battery during braking.
- “GTE” mode is for when the driver wants a sportier response in the controller, gearshifts, and steering system, and provides the driver access to the total output capacities of their drivetrain by blending the power of the V6 and the two electric motors.
- “Off-road” mode makes the automobile all-wheel driveway, with the V6 providing energy to the front electrical motor in the event the battery is running low. While the electric motor is supplied from the front electrical engine in cases like this, the electric motor functions exclusively as a generator.
- Finally, “Battery Hold/Battery Charge” is a dual manner that retains the battery charge at a constant level, or charges the battery while driving.
2019 Volkswagen Atlas SUV Interior Changes
Moving indoors, a 10.1-in touchscreen proximity detectors and gesture management offer access to all or any infotainment works for both driver and front passenger, while the 12.3-in Volkswagen Digital Cockpit together with 1,440 x 540-pixel resolution lets the driver command and view driving mode and navigation info. Data such as telephone book contact graphics or CD covers are shown on the 10.1-in touchscreen can likewise be transferred to the Digital Cockpit display. Touch buttons may be located in the roofline place at the front of the cabin that controls the panoramic glass sunroof of the concept.
Like the Present Atlas and the Passat sedan, the production version of the 2019 Volkswagen Atlas SUV Concept will probably be manufactured at VW’s plant in Chattanooga, Tennessee. It will join the Atlas and Tiguan from 2019, with VW’s SUV lineup to become further strengthened in 2020 with the all-electric I.D. CROZZ.
2019 Volkswagen Atlas SUV Release Date
