Double premiere in New York: Volkswagen presents the Atlas Cross Sport and Atlas Tanoak concept cars

  • Atlas Cross Sport: five-seat Atlas concept car in dynamic coupé style offers a tangible preview of a new Volkswagen SUV for the American market
  • Atlas Tanoak: the concept car being shown in New York is the first pickup to be based on the modular transverse matrix (MQB)
  • Future Atlas range: these two show cars show the potential of a possible family of Atlas vehicles

Volkswagen is igniting the next stage of its global SUV campaign. After recently presenting the new Touareg in China, Volkswagen is now presenting – at the New York International Auto Show (March 28 to April 08) – two new versions of the Atlas developed for the USA: the Atlas Cross Sport1 and the Atlas Tanoak1. The two concept cars illustrate how the Atlas range could be expanded into a model family. With its hybrid drive and a coupé-like rear body design, the five-seat, near-production Atlas Cross Sport was developed for use in metropolitan areas like New York or San Francisco. Meanwhile, the Atlas Tanoak pickup – with its innovative cargo system – is an ideal choice for driving across America’s expansive landscapes. Both Atlas concept cars feature extensively digitalized interiors.
