Volkswagen Shows Off Its First Hybrid in U.S. Next Week

The last of the big ones warms to electricity.

This Touareg is not like the others.

The Volkswagen Group will show off its first hybrid in New York City next week, the 2011 Touareg, and in effect will usher itself into the new car market. Volkswagen is one of the few major car makers that doesn't already have a hybrid on the road. Stefan Jacoby, president of Volkswagen US, and Walter da Silva, who oversees design for the company, will preside over the event, which takes place Tuesday, March 30 at the IAC Building.
