I don't know if this is going to be an EV (or if there will be an electrified version), but on October 13 VW is introducing a brand new compact SUV!

It's going to be slotted under the Tiguan in VW's lineup.

Herndon, VA — Volkswagen released the first image and video today of its new compact SUV. This new offering will slot under the Tiguan, and is the second proof point of Volkswagen’s doubling-up SUV strategy following the launch of Atlas Cross Sport earlier this year. The official reveal will take place next month, on October 13.

“We’re excited to share the first glimpse of the newest member of the Volkswagen family,” said Scott Keogh, president and CEO of Volkswagen Group of America. “Great things come in small packages, as Volkswagen has proven throughout the years with its iconic Beetle, Golf and Jetta. This next car will be no exception.”

Apparently it's named after the city of Taos in New Mexico.

“We’re thrilled to announce the name for the newest member of the Volkswagen family,” said Hein Schafer, Senior VP for Product Marketing and Strategy. “It was important to choose a name that really embodied the nature of the car and the town of Taos, New Mexico was a perfect fit. It’s a small city that offers big things—from outdoor adventure to arts and design and great cuisine.”

The town gets its name from the Taos Pueblo, a community with a thousand-year history. As one of the oldest continuously inhabited communities in the US, the pueblo has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. As of 2006, about 150 people live in the historic complex.
