The Volkswagen Atlas is a sport utility vehicle (SUV) to be manufactured by German automaker Volkswagen at its Chattanooga plant in Chattanooga, Tennessee in the United States. The Atlas will be the largest vehicle produced on the Volkswagen Group MQB platform and will feature transverse-mounted engines of four-cylinders or Volkswagen's narrow angle V6.[5][6]

The Atlas will be marketed as the Volkswagen Teramont when production (in Shanghai) and sales begin in China in 2017.[7]


The Volkswagen CrossBlue previewed the Atlas/Teramont as a concept diesel plug-in-hybrid mid-size crossover SUV in 2013.

The Atlas was introduced at the LA Auto Show in Los Angeles on November 17, 2016. It will go on sale in the United States in the Spring of 2017 as a 2018 model.[8]
