Shanghai (Gasgoo)- FAW-Volkswagen has already owned two major brands, the FAW-Volkswagen and FAW-VW Audi. Its third brand is currently ready to be launched. News comes from FAW-Volkswagen that its third brand will release three new models in 2019 which include a A-segment SUV model and a A+ segment SUV model, both of which are built on the MQB-A1 platform and a sedan model based on the PQ25L platform.
Positioned below the Volkswagen, the third brand is designed for the young consumers and will go into production in FAW-Volkswagen’s Chengdu base. The third brand’s annual production capacity is expected to be 400,000 units, in which, the annual production capacity of the A-segment SUV model, A+ segment SUV model and the sedan model are respectively 100,000 units, 200,000 units and 100,000 units.
The MQB-A1 platform can effectively reduce the development cost and can flexibly convert the powertrain according to the demands of the new models. Vehicles built on the MQB-A1 platform have greater superiorities in terms of the curb weight and dimension, which also can be flexibly adjusted, so as to further meet the demands of Chinese consumers.
The A-segment SUV model of the third brand is predicted to have a similar design style with the SEAT Ateca regarding the exterior look. It has a 4,400×1,841×1,611mm body dimension and a 2,630mm wheelbase. Also, the A-segment SUV model features a 1.4L EA211 turbocharged engine, which works in conjunction with the manual or automatic transmission, generating the maximum output of 110kW.
Compared with the A-segment SUV, the A+ segment SUV, as its long-wheelbase version, will have the same exterior look and powertrain, but is 100mm longer in the wheelbase and 200mm longer in the length of the vehicle body dimension.
The third brand’s sedan model will inherit Volkswagen’s family styling, with its frontend, vehicle body and tail being much similar with the Jetta. It is equipped with the EA211 1.5L NA and 1.4L turbocharged engine which pair with the 5-speed MT, 6-speed AMT and 7-speed DSG as options.
