After seven months of sales, Volkswagen Atlas can request a pleasant sales chart; last month, the dealership shipped 5,154 new crossovers. That’s an alliance of heavyweights like the Honda Pilot and the Toyota Highlander, but goes hand-in-hand with luxury totems such as the BMW X5, Acura MDX and Cadillac XT5. Hinrich Woebcken, chief executive officer of Volkswagen North America, hinted the company had more plans for Atlas. Volkswagen said that in the Mk7 Jetta tournament, Woebcken expressed the hope that the “Atlas family” would include a B-segment entry for volume sales.
The various jigsaw puzzles point to a five-seat atlas, perhaps a sporty bent thing, or off-road pretensions. At this year’s New York Auto Show, Woebcken told reporters that Volkswagen is already developing five SUVs at the Chattanooga, Tennessee manufacturing facility. That development is part of a shift to a “family-friendly” carmaker that is serving the avid starvation of cross-border cars and SUVs in the United States.
Last November, Volkswagen applied for a trademark application under the names “Atlas Cross Sport” and “Atlas Allsport.” It is unlikely that where they will be applied, but the Atlas Cross campaign strikes us as the delayed echo of the GTE Concept Volkswagen, the five-seat crossover, shown at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show. Decors such as Golf Alltrack and Audi Allroad means the fa?ade and standpoint suggest some kind of SPF 30 adventures on the other side of the ferry and gravel road. We can see that the Atlas Cross Sport filled up to the standard five-seat, Atlas Allsport to play for their stout brothers.
Volkswagen also used the trademark name “Apollo” name, the name once used in a small Brazilian sedan. That can be Tiguan’s SUV service? Woebcken said he is looking for the United States market?
