VW drops teaser video of new, Chattanooga-built SUV

Posted: Updated:

Volkswagen has released a preview video of their new midsize SUV that will be built here in Chattanooga.

The video, titled "Origins," outlines the philosophies behind the vehicle and the decisions VW made for the vehicle. The eight-part video series explores the new midsize SUV, from concept to creation.

The SUV, which is expected to be called "Atlas," will seat seven. VW filed U.S. trademark applications  for the name earlier in 2016. 

Production is expected to begin in late 2016, ahead of the vehicles 2017 debut.

"It's a car to take the family and transport them to a national park or state forest. It fits in perfectly to that active lifestyle," said VW's Jim Burch, the Product Manager for Volkswagen of America.
