German automaker Volkswagen has taken the New York International Auto Show by storm by introducing an innovative new SUV concept that offers upgrades in a range of areas, ranging from the number of seats to the extent of the electric range.

The Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport Concept is said to be a fairly accurate representation of the production vehicle set to hit the market in 2019. It comes with the same V6 engine used in the regular Atlas, albeit with a pair of additional motors for extra thrust, all operating within a plug-in hybrid environment. Elsewhere, this vehicle is constructed on Volkswagen's modular MQB platform, making it compatible with an array of optional add-ons and systems.

With an ultra-efficient electric drivetrain and a modular structure that welcomes upgrades without sacrificing performance, this SUV concept is a peek into a future where automobiles are built to be eco-friendly and highly customizable.
