Brandstatter confirmed the mannequin’s arrival, alongside a sketch of it (beneath) on the model’s annual press convention at which it confirmed income had risen 451% in opposition to a gross sales quantity drop of 8%.
The rakish automotive will basically function the electrical equal to the combustion-engined Passat, giving Volkswagen a sorely wanted rival to electrical government market leaders just like the Tesla Mannequin 3 and Polestar 2.

Though the outside dimensions will largely match the combustion-engined Passat’s, the inside is predicted to supply house on a par with the Phaeton flagship, which bowed out in 2016.
