The powerful hybrid drive in the Golf GTE Plug-in Hybrid is made up of an almost silent electric motor with seamless power transmission and an innovative 1.4 l TSI direct injection petrol engine with 110 kW (150 PS), which generates an incredibly dynamic drive with low consumption. When combined, the motor and engine accelerate the Golf GTE Plug-in Hybrid from 0 to 100 km/h in just 6.7 seconds – and up to a top speed of 225 km/h. While doing so, they deliver power of up to 180 kW (245 PS) and generate a formidable torque of up to 400 Nm. In addition to the three intuitive hybrid operating modes, the pure electric e-mode is ideal for urban centres – and can be used for distances of up to 62 km (NEDC)*. This means: You can drive with electricity in the city, use both power units when overtaking on country roads, and the TSI engine then increases the range on long trips. Once you get back home again, you can recharge the electric motor’s battery in no more than 5 hours using a normal socket. With the optional wallbox or at a public charging station, including the optional Mode 3 Type 2 charging cable, the battery can reach a full charge in as few as 3 hours and 40 minutes.
