Jumping on the BMW X6,  Mercedes GLE SUV coupe bandwagon VW have thrown their hat into the ring with the Cross Coupe GTE.

Still in the ‘Concept’ stage we would expect this to make production in the near future…depending on how well the GLE fairs.

All that tech gives the Cross Coupe a 0-60 time of just 6 seconds. It can travel silently for 20 miles with the rear electric motors driving it alone.

The GTE will also be a capable off roader with Off Road modes such as Rocks, Sludge, Sand & Gravel, as well as Sport and Snow.
