Volkswagen Passat: what to expect from the new product

A big surprise in the line of the next generation Volkswagen Passat. The Germans also plan to offer a sedan in an electric version, but also consider replacing the model. "The Passat has a limited service life," said Volkswagen America chief operating officer Johan de Nysschen, showing that perhaps when the current generation reaches the end of its life cycle, the model will be radically replaced or changed. He specified electric motion as the solution for the D-segment model.

De Nysschen did not say when the change would take place, but it is imminent. The German automaker needs a change that will bring the Passat back to the top of sales in the United States. The collapse figures credited to the account of the German model and registered in the context of the decline in popularity of sedans, frighten Volkswagen bosses. In 2012, the model was ordered by 117,023 customers, but last year only 14,123 units were sold.
 The production version of the ID Vizzion concept, presented in 2018 at the Geneva motor show, which is planned to be released in 2022, can be a replacement for the Passat. The concept is based on the MEB platform developed by Volkswagen Group for its zero-emission models.
