VWs European Golf: CNG, Gasoline, Diesel, BEV and now PHEV
Volkswagen is covering all of the bases. Volkswagen's all-new Golf GTE PHEV-21 ? The Jetta Hybrids drivetrain minus a gear + an 8.8 kWh pack allowing approximately 21-miles of all-electric range on the EPA if it reaches our shores in 2015. We will see it first in the 2015 Audi A3 PHEV-(21 maybe???) sometime this summer. Volkswagen is the first manufacturer anywhere to offer a model with a full range of conventional and alternative powertrains. The new Golf GTE PHEV is the fifth powertrain to be offered in the Golf, adding to gasoline, diesel, CNG and full electric versions. The Golf GTE has an NEDC hybrid combined fuel economy rating of 157 mpg (equivalent to 35 g of CO2) and has an all-electric range of 31 miles along with an overall range of 584 miles.
