As we learned from a recent report that cited a VW official, VW’s C Coupe GTE study unveiled last month at the Shanghai Auto Show previews a flagship plug-in hybrid vehicle for China.
Whether or not that PHEV will wear the Phaeton name it remains to be seen, but until then, you can take a look at how the study’s design cues would look on a wagon body style. Photoshop artist Theophilus Chin did this exercise and transformed the C Coupe GTE concept into an estate.
As usual, the renderings look really impressive and give us the confirmation that the VW study would be a looker even as an estate. Still, it will not become real since wagons are not that popular in China, where the production version of the C Coupe GTE will be sold.
