A MYSTERY ILLUSTRATION, purportedly of a new Volkswagen concept dubbed 'New Coupe Concept', has surfaced online ahead of a possible Detroit Motor Show debut this week.
Reportedly based on the upcoming Jetta sedan, the New Coupe Concept (if it exists) is expected to be a near-production-ready version of a future Jetta Coupe.
If it comes to fruition, the New Coupe Concept marks even greater diversity in the growing Volkswagen line-up. Already, three-door models exist for the Polo and Golf, along with the stylish Scirocco coupe and the Passat CC four-door 'coupe'.
While Volkswagen has offered no official details for the NCC - or even confirmed its existence - the well-proportioned coupe is expected to draw power from a petrol-electric hybrid system.
Ulrich Hackenberg, Volkswagen's Research and Development boss, is reported to have said that the diesel hybrid technology that allows Volkswagenâ€™s Up! Lite concept to achieve fuel economy figures of 2.44 l/100km could be upscaled to larger vehicles.
