the capacity of The battery is designed so that it can travel on electric propulsion, covering average distances to daily commuters. Like every Touareg, the new version of R comes standard with permanent all-wheel drive 4MOTION, thanks to which, and to the maximum torque of 700 Nm is approved for a towing weight of maximum 3.5 tons in traction 100% electric E-Mode. But let's go with order.
The new flagship is designed by the sports brand Volkswagen R, that always develops the best-performing models in the range. Not only that, for the first time a hybrid model is stated as the most powerful of the house of Volkswagen. Embellished with, among other things, by the package design for the exterior Black Style, with alloy wheels 20-inch Braga, and interior R-Line (among the others: the skin Vienna with stitching in gray crystal) and equipment crazy, the Touareg R will be launched on the market in the second half of 2020.
The hybrid propulsion system of the Touareg R is essentially composed of a turbo-engine V6 TSI from 2.995 cm3, of an electric motor and a lithium-ion battery (capacity 14,1 kWh) integrated in the underbody of the boot. A power electronics converts the direct current of the battery into alternating current for the electric motor. Presides over the transmission of a 8-speed automatic transmission (with Tiptronic), which transfers the forces to the front axle and the rear axle (all-wheel drive permanent 4MOTION) via a transfer case. Acts as a torque divider between the front axle and rear axle of a self-locking centre differential with torque split asymmetric and dynamic (Torsen). The driving force can be transmitted to the front axle up to a maximum of 70% and the rear axle up to a maximum of 80%.
by Launching the Touareg R, if the battery is sufficiently charged, operates for the first only the electric motor. In this way you ensure that the SUV, especially if used on short journeys, travel, the local emissions to zero. In addition, this hybrid strategy offers the greatest potential for savings. The Touareg R can be driven in pure electric mode up to a speed of 140 km/h; above this threshold (or at any time by pressing the accelerator pedal), it automatically starts the V6 TDI. The maximum speed of the SUV is electronically limited at achievement of 250 km/h.
With the Menu button on the 4MOTION the Active Control on the centre console or with the corresponding menu of the infotainment system, the driver logs on to the control of the hybrid functions and the selection of the profile of the guide. Both options are displayed next to each other in a screen shared and immediately comprehensible. The hybrid functions are available for E-Mode for running solely on electric power and the Hybrid mode for optimal cooperation and automatic engines and electric V6. If, in Hybrid mode, the driver presses the button And a Mode, at speeds of up to 140 km/h and the battery is sufficiently charged, the Touareg R begins to travel in pure electric mode. If, on the contrary, by the mode, E-Mode button is pressed, the Hybrid, the SUV switches to this mode of travel.
Below the two fields in And-Mode, and Hybrid of the screen, appears a battery is divided into ten levels. Through this illustration, the driver can read it in an intuitive way the relative level of charge of the battery on the basis of the number of segments of the battery are lit, but the blue (from 0 to 100%); if, for example, the charge level of the battery is at 40%, are illuminated in blue four segments.
But that's not all. The Touareg R is equipped with series of Innovision Cockpit, consisting of the instrumentation and digital Cockpit display, 12-inch) and the display of the infotainment system (Discover Premium, TFT touchscreen, 15-inch). Through the infotainment system, the driver gets information specifically designed for the car and its hybrid functions, by the directions the flow of energy (an illustration of the energy reserve of the battery, the energy requirements of the propulsion system and recharging the battery) and monitor electric range (indication range-electric, of the guide profile and the possibility to expand the autonomy by means of the deactivation of the electrical services). On the Digital Cockpit, using the combination indicator powermeter / meter number of turns placed on the left side, it is possible to read the status of the hybrid system; they are indicated in the energy consumption (in the case of acceleration) or the accumulation of energy (during deceleration) and the Hybrid mode. Also displayed are the distance to residual electric and autonomy in relation to the fuel.
A novelty of the Touareg is the system Travel Assist, which is available on request. So far, the system allowed the assisted driving up to 210 km/h. On the Touareg, where possible, this assistance is available for the first time up to a speed of 250 km/h. The Travel Assist uses, among other things, for the automatic control of the distance ACC (dynamic longitudinal) and assistance for maintaining the Lane Assist Lane (transverse momentum). Is activated by means of the new multifunction steering wheel. For legal reasons, and yet the driver must constantly check the system, keeping at least one hand on the steering wheel. Thanks to a new sensor capacitive in the steering wheel of the Touareg, it is sufficient for the driver to touch him just.
within the range, is reserved exclusively to the Touareg R is the color typical of Volkswagen R named Lapiz Blue Metallic (available on request). Always as optional equipment are available on the 21-inch wheels Suzuka and, for the first time, the 22-inch rims Estoril. But for all specifications, equipment and prices, you should wait until the date of its commercialization.
