A plug-in vehicle for next gen users.

The world's best car manufacturer, VW, has redesigned the CrossBlue Concept. The machine will be debuted at the upcoming 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show.

The CrossBlue is a plug-in hybrid vehicle. It's based on the MQB architecture seen in the 2015 Golf and Audi A3. The machine is powered by a turbocharged gasoline V-6, two electric motors which are powered by a 9.8-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery pack. It's coupled with a six-speed DSG dual-clutch transmission.
