Volkswagen has recently announced the official starting price of the 2013 Jetta Hybrid in the United States which has been set at 25,790 USD, including the 795 USD destination charge.

According to the German based automaker, the 2013 Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid is 8,320 USD more expensive than the base non-hybrid version, but it’s still more affordable than the 2013 Jetta Hybrid SEL Premium, which can be bought from 31,975 USD, shipping included. The non-hybrid version of the 2013 Jetta, the 2.0L S, is available from 17,470 USD, including the $795 destination charge.

Power to the 2013 Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid is being provided by a 1.4 liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine, which is helped by an electric motor, producing a total output of 170 horsepower. The hybrid powertrain is mated to a seven-speed DSG dual-clutch automatic transmission. The new Jetta Hybrid is expected to get a combined fuel economy of 45 mpg but the EPA didn’t post the official fuel economy numbers of the model for the moment. The 2013 Jetta Hybrid will go on sale in the U.S. later on this year.
