The 2015 Volkswagen Passat has been garnering a lot of attention ever since it was introduced earlier this year and it appears thieves couldn't resist taking a closer look.

According to the Emden Police Department, an unidentified male stole a vehicle from a Volkswagen plant earlier this month. The thief successfully escaped with the car but ditched it a short time later. Police were unable to apprehend the suspect but they did manage to capture him on traffic cameras.

Interestingly, this isn't the first theft of an all-new Passat. Police are also investigating the disappearance of another model on October 3rd but haven't confirmed whether or not the two incidents are related.
