Volkswagen Golf GTE Plug-in Hybrid unveiled, going to Geneva

The new Volkswagen Golf GTE Plug-in Hybrid has been officially unveiled and the model in question will be making its public debut in a couple of weeks, during the 2014 Geneva Motor Show.

Volkswagen is currently expanding the Golf range by adding yet another version of the model, a plug-in hybrid, which is basically looking the same as the regular hatchback, except from the front fascia, which has taken some lines from both the electric e-Golf and the new GTI too. The company says that this model has been fitted with the standard 6.5-inch Composition Media radio system or with the Discover Pro optional navigation system.

The new Golf GTE is also getting the driving range monitor, the e-manager, the zero emission statistics, the 360 degree driving range, the energy flow display and some other tweaks. Power is being provided by a 1.4 liter TSI turbocharged engine, which is good for 148 HP (110 kW). The internal combustion unit is being backed up by an electric motor, which is providing an extra 101 HP (75 kW).

Volkswagen says that the total output produced by this assembly stands at 201 HP (150 kW) and 349 Nm (258 lb-ft) of torque. The 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) sprint takes 7.6 seconds in the Golf GTE and top speed stands at 217 km/h (135 mph). The average fuel consumption stands at just 1.8 liters every 100 km (157 mpg UK / 130 mpg US) and the CO2 emissions stop at 35 g/km. The model can be driven in electric mode for 50 km (31 miles) and it has an overall range of 940 km (584 miles).
