Volkswagen announced their foray into the hotly contested midsize SUV market this month with the reveal of the CrossBlue concept. Should it reach production the seven passenger plug-in diesel hybrid would bring VW one step closer to their ultimate goal of complete world domination.

The Cross Blue concept doubles down on efficiency using VW’s 190hp 2-liter EA288 TDI diesel engine to power the front wheels along with a 54hp electric motor that’s engaged as needed. A second 114hp electric motor drives the rear wheels for a total output of 305 horsepower. Volkswagen expects the Blue will make it from 0-60mph in 7.2 seconds.
