The Volkswagen CrossBlue is a concept diesel plug-in-hybrid mid-size crossover SUV, intended to sit in the VW SUV range, below the Volkswagen Touareg. The concept version of the car has six seats, but the production version that will be based on it will have a traditional seven-seat layout. It is meant to replace the slow selling Volkswagen Routan minivan, and is intended to be sold exclusively in the American and Canadian markets. However Volkswagen of Australia is currently trying to convince Volkswagen executives to have the concept appear in Australian Auto Shows. In the American and Canadian markets, its targeted competitors are the Toyota Highlander, Toyota 4Runner, Ford Explorer, and Honda Pilot. On July 14, 2014, Volkswagen announced that the CrossBlue will be built at its factory in Chattanooga, Tennessee. 
The production version was announced with the name Atlas for those manufactured in the USA and Teramont for those manufactured in China. Atlas will feature transverse-mounted engines of four-cylinders or Volkswagens narrow angle V6.
