Volkswagen, in an attempt to design a car for North America, came up with the CrossBlue, which features a plug-in diesel hybrid drive system and electric four-wheel drive. With its diesel engine aided by an electric motor and a second electric motor driving the rear wheels, Volkswagen sets the output at 306 horsepower and a 516 pound-feet of torque. Volkswagen unveiled the CrossBlue at the 2013 Detroit auto show.
