Report: Volkswagen could triple crossover SUV lineup

Word in the pipeline via AutomotiveNews in Europe reports that Volkswagen may triple the amount of offerings for their crossover SUV lineup. Though during this process, interestingly, Volkswagen’s anticipated crossover highlight, the seven-seat model based on the CrossBlue Concept, may be pushed back as a result and America may not even see the full crossover SUV lineup supposedly planned.

While Volkswagen’s other portfolios serve up some selection in the crossover department, such as the Audi Q-line, Porsche’s Cayenne and Macan, and the new Bentley crossover. The new mission: to offer more mainstream options. The final tally of models in Volkswagen’s own lineup could reach as high as six crossovers total. Part of the new lineup would include a new Tiguan in 2015, a possible coupe version and perhaps a long wheelbase model. Let’s not forget the subcompact Taigun as well as a new Touareg.

Additionally in the report, insiders at Volkswagen’s factories have said that both the Tennessee and Mexico plants are fighting over which factory will build the truck. A determining factor includes the respective incentive deals provided by the federal government. A final decision is expected to happen sometime in June with an arrival date sometime in 2016 for the production Crossblue.
