2023 VW Caddy Plug-In Hybrid – Fourth-generation Volkswagen Caddy has been on sale in Europe since November of 2020. It was announced just a few months prior to the launch of its market it was one of the first vehicles light-commercial made by Wolfsburg to be built on Volkswagen’s MQB platform. It’s currently offered with the four engines that are internal combustion as well as the plug-in hybrid engine is expected to be added to the line-up in the near future. This latest version of the electric Caddy was recently captured on camera by our spy photographers.
In both regular and long-wheelbase versions, The Caddy PHEV does not appear any different from the ICE versions that are available on the LCV. The most obvious difference will be the port for charging located on the left-hand side of the front face of the fender. The shape of this port is a bit odd at the moment of the process, but it will be seamlessly integrated inside the sides panel. Additionally, there’s a wire that’s taped on the back hatch although it’s not likely to be connected to the new powertrain electrified.
2023 VW Caddy Plug-In Hybrid Concept
At the beginning of development were rumors about the possibility that Caddy would have the same powertrain that powers the Golf PHEV. It will combine a 1.4-liter TSI gasoline turbocharged engine with an electric motor. But, a report is now circulating that Volkswagen might have been working on an improvement of the system, which would include the addition of a bigger 1.5-liter TSI combustion engine. There is no confirmation at the moment, but it is speculated that this engine will include an electric motor that will be placed in between an engine as well as the transmission. A six-speed dual-clutch gearbox would likely transfer power, and batteries made of lithium-ion can store energy for as long as 31 to 37 miles (50-60 kilometers) of electric range.
2023 VW Caddy Plug-In Hybrid Future
As these photos illustrate, Volkswagen does not bother concealing the plug-in electronic Caddy. This may mean two things: Volkswagen doesn’t plan major visual enhancements compared to its combustion counterparts and it is possibly getting closer to completion.
If this theory is true then we could see the official launch later this year. Sales are expected to start in the first quarter of the next year.
