Volkswagen is reportedly planning to build a new “sporty urban” crossover, which will be built at its Navarra plant in Pamplona, Spain starting from the second half of 2021. The future model will share the MQB platform used by the Polo and T-Cross, both also assembled at the same location, reports Wards Auto.
Details about the yet-unnamed crossover are scarce, as the company won’t reveal how it plans to differentiate the new model from the T-Cross, be it in terms of size or design. However, it’s said that hybrid and fully electric powertrains will be made available.
“Since the new model uses the same mechanical platform as those already built in Landaben, we can use the same manufacturing lines for it as for the Polo and the T-Cross, obtaining synergies that will allow us to manufacture it at competitive costs,” said Andreas Tostmann, member of the executive committee of the Volkswagen brand for production and logistics.
The Volkswagen Navarra facility assembled 272,272 cars (272,041 Polo, 231 T-Cross) in 2018, and was designed to build 1,200 cars a day. That figure now stands at 1,410 cars with the T-Cross being added in, but no production forecasts have been revealed when the new crossover joins the line.
