The China-only Talagon would share components with the upcoming Audi Q9.
It is larger overall than the current big VW, the Atlas.
The Atlas is sold under the Teramont in China.
Volkswagen itself once referred to the large-midsize Atlas as the biggest vehicle they’ve ever built. That’s about to change as images of the Talagon have leaked on the web.
It’s become customary that images of new models leak online thanks to the Chinese Ministry of Industry requirement that pictures of new models be submitted ahead of their market introduction. From these pictures, we can clearly see that the final production version of the Talagon looks very much like the SMV concept introduced at the 2019 Shanghai Auto Show.
As a matter of comparison, the Talagon is 4.5 inches longer overall and 0.5 inches wider than the Atlas. The wheelbase’s length is unknown however, as reported by Carbuzz, to concept’s WB was about 120 inches which is about 3 inches longer than the Atlas’. Both are underpinned by VW’s widely used MQB platform.
Powering the behemoth will be a turbocharged 2.0-litre 4-cylinder engine with either 186- or 220 horsepower. The power will be sent to the front or all four wheels.
