VW says next-gen Tiguan, Crafter and Porsche Panamera are due in 2016

VW has disclosed plans to introduce the next generations of the Tiguan, Crafter and Porsche Panamera in 2016. The Crafter successor is going to be assembled at a brand new factory located in Wrzesnia, Poland where VW will create 2,300 new jobs. Production of the model is slated to commence in the fourth quarter of 2016 and it is believed the model will be co-developed with MAN rather than Mercedes-Benz. As for the new Tiguan, this will be made in Hanover starting 2016 and will ride on the modular transverse matrix platform while primary production will take place in Wolfsburg.

Last but certainly not least, Volkswagen says the next generation of the Porsche Panamera is programmed to enter the production phase in 2016 at the Leipzig factory. The model will probably utilize the MSB platform and will be offered with newly developed 6- and 8-cylinder engines which should make the vehicle not only more powerful but also more fuel efficient.
