Rumour Has It That Volkswagen Are Planning A Touareg R Hybrid

Reports state that Volkswagen are working on a Touareg R Hybrid, and it could be revealed at the 2011 Detroit Motor Show. There are limited details on the Touareg R Hybrid, however it’s rumoured that there will be a 373kW turbocharged V8 engine connected to a 35kW electric motor.

When combined, the total output would amount to 408kW. Because there’s electricity involved, we’re expecting a pretty torque figure.

The hybrid will sport a new aerodynamic body kit, larger brakes and a sportier suspension system.
