Volkswagen debuted its new Atlas Cross Sport SUV at the New York International Auto Show this week.

The vehicle will be made at Volkswagen's Chattanooga plant.

Watch a video provided by Volkswagen of the unveiling below:

Volkswagen says the new 5-seat SUV will begin assembly at its Chattanooga plant in 2019. After the conventional Atlas and the Passat, it's the third model to be built at the plant.

Volkswagen says the company plans to invest an additional $340 million in the Chattanooga factory to bring the vehicle to market, bringing their overall investment in Chattanooga to more than $3 billion,

VW says the Atlas Cross Sport concept is 7.5 inches shorter than the Atlas, but retains the same wheelbase.

VW says the concept uses a plug-in hybrid drive system, with two electric motors, a V6 gasoline engine, and 355 horsepower. A conventional mild hybrid drive system would produce 310 horsepower.
