At the world premiere, Volkswagen presents the first photos and facts of the completely newly developed Passat. The focus is on powerful aerodynamic design, new high-efficiency drives, high quality and a host of new technologies. In just a few days, the vehicle will be shown to the public for the first time at the IAA Mobility in Munich (5 to 9 September 2023). The new Passat will be launched as a versatile Variant in the first quarter of 2024. With more than 34 million units sold worldwide, the Passat is the top-selling Volkswagen of all time after the Golf and ahead of the Beetle.

In the new Passat Variant, gear changes are now carried out by means of a steering column switch with intuitive operating principle: the switch is turned forward to "D" to drive forward and backward to "R" to reverse, while the parking brake is activated by pressing the side of the switch.
