Hybrid Volkswagen Golf GTE to make debut

The upcoming Gadget Show Live event at the NEC in Birmingham (April 9th - 13th) will host the UK debut of the all-new Volkswagen Golf GTE hybrid.

Having first emerged at the Geneva Motor Show in March, the car has now made the trip to our shores to show off its efficient and practical features.

Under the bonnet is a 1.4-litre 150 PS TSI direct-injection petrol engine, that works in harmony with a 102 PS electric motor. 

These help to create a total of 204 PS and 350 Nm of torque. With both engines in use, the car can hit a top speed of 138mph and achieve a 0-62mph time of 7.6 seconds. However, it is still able to offer a combined fuel cycle of 188mpg while producing just 35g/km of CO2. 

While running in pure electric mode, the car can cover up to 31 miles with a top speed of 81mph.

It is intended to combine all the best features of the e-Golf and the Golf GTI, with features like C-shaped LED daytime running lights and aerodynamic horizontal 'fins'. 

The car will take its place at the event alongside the stylish and super-efficient Volkswagen XL1 and the e-up! - Volkswagen's other electric vehicle offering.
