VW Launching Armada Of Petrol- And Diesel-Powered Models And EVs By 2024

Exciting things are coming from Volkswagen, including a plethora of new internal combustion vehicles and a selection of EVs that look set to shake up the industry.

Auto Motor Und Sport reports that the German automaker will introduce no less than 17 all-new vehicles between now and 2024, excluding the recently-announced, updated Touareg.

Kicking off the brand’s expanded range will be two highly-anticipated models, the T-Roc R and Arteon R. Both should offer exhilarating performance and compete at the top of their respective segments.

Later this year, a Tiguan Coupe is set to launch as a more premium alternative to the standard Tiguan. It will be offered with a 2.0-liter TSI delivering 220 hp and a more powerful 2.0-liter twin-turbo diesel with 240 hp. A facelifted Passat is also just around the corner, and will be shortly followed by a new baby in VW’s SUV range in the shape of the T-Cross.

Based on the Polo, the T-Cross will get a number of three-cylinder, 1.0-liter engines as well as a 1.5-liter four-cylinder offering 150 hp and a two-liter TSI with 200 hp. Small 1.6-liter diesels are also on the cards.

After these new models, the eighth-generation Golf will land in early 2019 and just a few weeks later, be joined by the all-electric I.D. hatchback. Pricing for the I.D. is expected to be similar to a new Golf diesel and its presence in VW’s range means the outgoing e-Golf will be killed off.

As VW continues to roll out I.D. models, potentially as many as four more by 2024, the brand will also offer customers new petrol and diesel vehicles. Included among these will be the Golf 8 Estate, Golf GTI and VW Arteon Shooting Brake. Additionally, the new VW T7 will arrive at roughly the same time in late 2019, and in 2020, the A45 AMG-rivaling VW Golf R will launch and mark the introduction of a refocused and more extreme R performance brand.

    It’s an admirable plan, but seems a bit too ambitious to maintain (not to mention, improve) acceptable quality standards.

    Only a german group like Volkswagen can survive to the dieselgate and fight back.
    From Skoda to Bentley, they’ll bring EV’s on every market segment.

    Nearly twenty years of promising a VW bus revival. The diesel betrayal. Camry-grade boringness in the US market for years. I would love that bus, but still, I’m finding it really difficult to root for VW these days.

  • TheHake

    I love they they are offering some performance cars as well. I’d love a T-Roc R!

    These monthly announcements of VAG about how many EVs, Hybrids etc. tehy will have in 2020something start to reach Sergio Marchionne levels of trash talk….
