Volkswagen Touareg Hybrid by Je Design

The good old Volkswagen tuner Je design announced a new upgrade kit for the latest Touareg SUV which covers all variants including the Hybrid model.

Visually the multi-piece wide body kit including a new grille, new spoilers, new headlights, flared arches, modified rear apron and a roof spoiler plus various new exhaust pipes is also cope with the models equipped with factory-fitted off-road kits. Complementing the looks are the 22-inch Aluminium wheels available in different finishes as well as custom painting.

As for the power and performance, the hybrid models benefit from a good power bump, while the 3.0 liter diesel models also get a nice treatment. The power of the 3.0-litre TFSI engine has gone up from 379 HP (279 kW) to 440 HP (324 kW) and 630 Nm of torque.  For the 3.0-litre TDI model, the improvement is from 240 HP (177 kW) to 285 HP (210 kW).

The hybrid Touareg now does 0 to 100 km/h in 5.9 seconds as opposed to the standard 6.5 seconds and can reach 255 km/h instead of 240.

More details plus pricing of each part in the press release below:

The new Touareg grew four centimetres in length in comparison to its predecessor. But only JE DESIGN enhances the width of this large VW as well. The new JE DESIGN Widebody-Kit in combination with the aluminium wheels and lower suspension setting bestows the SUV from Wolfsburg with significantly higher road dominance and an increased overtake prestige. The increased performance honours the wide construction’s promise in an impressive manner.

The JE DESIGN Widebody-Kit provides a completely new style for the Touareg, with a new sports radiator grill, front spoiler, front and back wheel arch kit, rear apron insert, roof spoiler and rear hatch blend for 5355 Euro including VAT (non-committal price recommendation). All of the components are fitted precisely, manufactured from Polyurethane (PU) and will be delivered already primed. The new additional headlights also provide the large Volkswagen with an even more unique front view.

Not only the components’ perfect alignment, but also the ability to combine the components with all models of this series speaks for the engineering of the customizer from Leingarten, Germany. The widebody kit is developed to accommodate the Touareg standard version, but is also precisely fitted to accommodate designer packages „Chrome & Style“ as well as „Terrain-Style“. The pivot-trailer hitch can also be used as well as the different Volkswagen-muffler tips – regardless whether round or trapezium shaped – the JE DESIGN Widebody-Kit is designed to support it.
Alternatively, the JE DESIGN offers dual exhaust pipes for 595 Euro, which channels the exhaust fumes left and right through round bevelled stainless steel pipes in a diameter of 90 (outside) and 100 millimetres (inside).

However, JE DESIGN is not limited to the visual transformation of the Touareg. Thanks to optimised engine management, the system performance of the 3.0-liter TSFI-engine has increased shortly to 440 hp (324 kW) vs. the previous 379 hp (279 kW) and the maximum system torque takes a leap from 580 to 630 Newton metres. The electro motor isn’t touched at this configuration. Therefore the acceleration of this more than two ton vehicle from 0-100 kph only takes 5.9 instead of 6.5 seconds and the top speed now no longer ends at 240 but at 255 kph instead. The price of 3999 Euro already includes a one year warranty for the engine, the compressor, the transmission and the power train and can be extended to two years for an additional 199 Euro. The 3.0-litre TDI also gets better performance with 285 hp (210 kW) instead of 240 hp (177 kW).

To ensure the newfound power is utilised to its full capacity on the road, the pneumatic electronic suspension lowering module will bring the vehicles 35 millimetres lower to the ground for a price of 1428 Euro.

As a result, the new aluminium wheels appear especially impressive. JE DESIGN equips the Wolfsburg-vehicle with the SUV-Select design, 10×12 inch aluminium wheels, back and front. For a total of 409 Euro the 30 millimetre wheel spacers on the front axel and 40 millimetres wheel spacers on the back axle additionally ensure that the wheel housing is optimally completed. For individual coordination, the wheels are available in three different finishes: shadow silver with a polished front surface, matte black with a matte silver front surface and matte graphite silver with polished rim. However, custom painted wheels are also available without problem so that each Touareg can become a unique vehicle. JE DESIGN offers the complete wheel package for 5190 Euro; single wheels are available for 690 Euro each.

The complete JE DESIGN upgrade, including assembly, paint and TÜV- registration is available for 21,105 Euro.

Of course, JE DESIGN will provide the respective TÜV-assessments for each component, so the specified assessments can be added to the vehicle registration without problem. Additionally, despite the performance increase, the Touareg is still in compliance with emission regulations and therefore eliminates problems during the emission control inspection.
