It's expected that at the 2016 NAIAS in Detroit this week, Volkswagen will present a plug-in hybrid SUV - the Tiguan GTE concept, which first debuted at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show.

The Tiguan GTE definitely should make into production at some point in the future, although it probably will take some time.

With a 13 kWh battery, NEDC range stands at 50 km / 31 miles.

The Concept Tiguan GTE is only FWD with 160kW/218PS system power (115 kW from 1.4 TSI direct-injection turbocharged petrol engine). Electric motor is integrated into the 6-speed dual-clutch gearbox (DSG) housing.

We'll be covering the 2016 NAIAS live form the show floor, so stay tuned for more details.
