The Volkswagen NCC concept debuts at Detroit auto show

VW debuted its much-anticipated new concept car at the International Auto Show in Detroit last month. This video provides a glimpse into what the new Compact Coupe is all about.

In continuation of my current video blog-post series concerning concept vehicles making their debuts a month ago at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, today I present a short but sweet video about Volkswagen's most recent foray into the e-car genre. And here it is, making its debut at the 2010 NAIAS is the VW New Compact Coupe concept as on display at the Cobo Arena in Detroit this last January.

The new Volkswagen NCC is reportedly a production-ready hybrid car that utilizes both traditional fuel energy as well as emerging electronic technology to propel this vehicle. Supposedly this bratwurst burner can operate at 146 horsepower and attain an uber-efficient 45 mpg while out on the Autobahn--that, my friends, is nothing to sneeze at--for an e-car especially. This video, courtesy of the experts at Kelley Blue Book, isn't the most exciting thing you'll ever see, but for a quick look and a basic rundown of the NCC's specs, you can get a general sense of what this new German hybrid has going on.
