2013 presents a hybrid concept car that could change the future of the Volkswagen Company. The Crossblue Coupe Concept is a SUV that promises to be a car that’s hard to forget.
The Crossblue Coupe sports three separate engines that work together for an output of over 400 horsepower. And because of the fact that two of its three engines are electric, it has a theoretical gas mileage of 79 MPG. But even taking out the electric engines, the main engine gets an impressive 34 MPG.
If this concept SUV gets turned into a full production car, its will have the option of being fitted with various different fuel types, such as CNG, diesel, or gasoline. This will give you the option of getting a slightly more eco-friendly car. The Crossblue even gives you the option of turning into a full eco mode. The full eco mode lets you cruise up to 75 MPH for 21 miles completely emission less. You can turn this feature on or off at your pleasure.
As most of the newer Hybrids do, the Crossblue will use the normal friction of the car to recharge its batteries. When you are driving on your gas engine, you can turn your car into a generator for your batteries, even utilizing your cars friction from using the brakes to charge your car.
The Crossblue sports a 10.1-inch infotainment system that will allow you to access even your GPS at any time. The main display will also show you any of the information that you need to know about how your batteries are holding up, how the charging system is working and overall how the wear and tear on your car is happening.
Another thing that the Crossblue uses as a energy saving feature is “coasting.” Coasting is when you let your foot off of the gas petal and the engines are automatically shut off and uncoupled from the drive train to make sure that there are no unnecessary emissions.
On the other hand, if you want to have a little more power added to your performance, you can use the boosting feature. The boosting feature uses all three engines at the same time to make sure that you have the highest horse power at any given time.
If you are looking for some of the comforts that you can find in any of the newer models of SUV, you will have no problem finding anything that you want with the Crossblue. Even when you first step into the car, the whole car lights up to show you that its awake. Apart from that, you can look at the wide variety of buttons that are at your disposal. There will be a line of buttons that control anything from the climate in any part of the car to even the seat warmers and the position of your seat.
When thinking about a car that you want to come into full production instead of staying a concept, the Crossblue should be at the top of your list, being both economical and comfortable.
