Volkswagen has just announced the new Volkswagen Touareg R model that will be coming as their new plug-in hybrid model and here is what we know about the vehicle.

The Volkswagen Touareg R model will be powered by a 335hp 3.0 liter V6 TSI petrol engine that will be paired with a 134hp electric motor that will deliver a combination of 455hp and 516lb ft of torque.

The all-wheel-drive powertrain will be mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission with a top speed of 155mph. It will have 27 to 30 miles of electric range and it will need 5 seconds to go from 0-62mph.
