AmericaJR.com’s Jason Rzucidlo reports from Cobo Center in downtown Detroit for the 2016 North American International Auto Show. In this video, watch for an interview with Mark Gilles, Manager of Product & Technology at Volkswagen of America, Inc. The Tiguan GTE Active Concept made its world debut at the NAIAS. The vehicle’s most striking innovation is its efficient plug-in hybrid system that uses two electric motors and a gasoline engine, which can supply all four wheels with power, either automatically or at the push of a button. The concept car starts every journey in all-electric E-mode as a zero emissions vehicle. The vehicle can cover up to 20 miles in all-electric mode. The driving range, based on a battery capacity of 12.4 kWh and a 16.9-gallon fuel tank, is 580 miles.
