Volkswagen had expected to introduce a brand new Passat for the North American market in 2018. However, his launch date has been pushed back to the introduction of the next higher next generation European Spec Passat, according to VW-Vortex. The delay will allow the model sold on our shores to switch to the modular MQB platform, a move that makes it significantly lighter than the current model (pictured)

While the two versions of the Passat will go on sale around the same time, Volkswagen reportedly stressed that it will continue to offer two completely different cars of the same name. This means that the Wolfsburg-based company still does not plan to sell the European Passat on our shores.

“It won’t be a Euro Passat. It will be designed in America, for America, “reaffirmed an anonymous insider source who spoke to VW Vortex. The comments apparently confirm that Volkswagen is gradually giving its North American division more independence.

The Passat pedestal will continue with a four-cylinder engine, but whether it will offer a six-cylinder again is in the air at this point. Volkswagen could decide to surf the downsizing wave that sweeps across the auto industry, giving the V6-powered Passat the proverbial ax. And given the company’s shift towards electrification, we wouldn’t be at all surprised if the next-generation Passat was available with a fuel-sipping plug-in hybrid drive.

A time frame for when the next generation Passat will arrive has not been specified. The Euro-spec model was introduced at the 2014 edition of the Paris Auto Show, so it won’t receive a major redesign until 2019 at the earliest. If true, we could see a brand new Passat arrive in the US showrooms in time for the 2021 model year.
