Based on VW T-Prime Concept GTE show car from Auto China 2016.

At the Auto China 2016, VW had revealed the T-Prime Concept GTE that previews a future full-size crossover. IAB’s graphic artist, Shoeb R Kalania, has here created a rendering of the production-spec model based on the concept which international publications regard as the precursor to the next gen VW Touareg.

Based on the T-Prime Concept GTE’s design and styling, IAB’s graphic artist, Shoeb R Kalania, has created a rendering of the production-spec model.

The VW T-Prime measures 5,069 mm long, 2,000 mm wide and 1,708 mm tall. It’s even longer than the first generation VW Phaeton by 10 mm. The T-Prime is the second model to be based on the Volkswagen Group’s modular longitudinal platform (MLB), first being the VW Phideon.

The concept model is powered by a plug-in hybrid powertrain that combines a 2.0-litre TSI four-cylinder petrol engine developing 182 hp and 370 Nm of torque and an electric motor generating 99 hp and 350 Nm of torque. Power is sent through an 8-speed automatic gearbox to the wheels via VW’s 4MOTION permanent all-wheel drive system with a limited-slip differential. The first of its kind was revealed way back in 2013, when VW unveiled the CrossBlue concept at the 2015 Detroit Motor Show.
