2023 VW Caddy Spied Testing With A Plug-In Hybrid Powertrain

2023 VW Caddy  – The fourth-generation Volkswagen Caddy has been on sale in Europe since November of the year 2020. The announcement came just several months prior to the market launch it was among the first light commercial vehicles manufactured in the company of Wolfsburg which was constructed using Volkswagen’s MQB platform. It’s currently available with four engines that have internal combustion as and the hybrid plug-in engine is scheduled to join the lineup soon. The latest model of the electrical Caddy was recently taken by our spy photographers. In both long-wheelbase and regular versions, the Caddy PHEV does not seem to be different from the ICE versions that are offered in the LCV. The biggest distinction is the charging port that is situated on the left part of the rear on the side of the fender. The design of the port may appear strange at the time of installation, but it’ll be seamlessly integrated into the side panel. There’s also the wire that’s taped onto the back hatch but it’s not likely to get connected to the powertrain that will be electrical.

In the early stages of development were rumors that Caddy could be powered by the same motor that is used in the Golf PHEV. It would incorporate a 1.4-liter TSI gasoline turbocharged engine with an electric motor. There is a report currently circulated that Volkswagen could be looking to improve the system. This could include an upgrade to a 1.5-liter TSI combustion engine.

There is no official confirmation currently, but it is believed that the engine will have an electric motor that can be installed between an engine and a transmission. A dual-clutch six-speed gearbox will likely transfer power as well as batteries made of lithium-ion could keep energy for the duration of 31 or 37 miles (50-60 kilometers) of electric range.

As the photos show, Volkswagen does not bother with obscuring the electronic Caddy. This could be a sign that two things are happening: Volkswagen doesn’t plan major visual enhancements in comparison to its combustion counterparts, and it’s possibly moving closer to completion. If this is the case, then we may have the first official launch in the coming months. The sales are expected to begin at the beginning of next year.
