The new Volkswagen Passat should be presented to the world next year. But we already know that it will only arrive in the more practical variant version.
Production of the car will move to Bratislava, where the Passat B9 will be produced alongside the new Skoda Superb. The cars will use the same technology. Behind the scenes reports, for example, the publication of a new generation of plug-in hybrid drive, with a 1.5 TSI engine and much larger batteries than today. These devices are supposed to provide a range of up to 100 km in pure electric mode, and are also said to provide faster recharging.
However, it is also possible to use classic internal combustion engines, powered by mild hybrid technology. Both petrol and diesel units will appear in the list. The new Passat Variant will reach customers in 2024.
The station wagon was given the advantage because it is more successful in Europe than the sedan. In addition, the new electric car will become the spiritual successor to the sedan. In the case of the Passat, an “off-road” version of the Alltrack with high ground clearance and a plastic-covered chassis was also planned.
New graphics on the Russian website indicate what the B9 Variant might look like Kolesa.ru. The designer obviously came from the current generation, but he played with too many details. The arc has been changed, which, thanks to the headlights, resembles the Volkswagen ID.4. The narrow lights, connected to the LED strip, are complemented by a new bumper with distinctive cut-outs. A similar version can be found in the Chinese Volkswagen Lamando.
Then the rear is dominated by threaded lights, the appearance of which again resembles the ID.4 electric car, and under it is a bumper of an interesting shape. However, minor changes also occurred on the sides of the body.
