Volkswagen has reaffirmed their commitment to build a seven-seat crossover.

Speaking at a recent presentation in Michigan, Volkswagen's CEO of Chattanooga Operations confirmed the Tennessee plant is in the running to build the model. Frank Fischer went on to say the plant is competing against the Puebla, Mexico factory and a decision will be made by the end of the year.

Fischer didn't have much to say about the model but confirmed his team is "working hard" to it. He also revealed it will ride on the MQB platform which will also underpin the next-generation Passat.

The executive declined to say when the model would be launched, but it was recently previewed by the CrossBlue concept which measured 4,987mm long, 2,015mm wide and 1,733mm tall.
