The new Volkswagen Golf GTE and the new Golf eHybrid offer new plug-in hybrid technology along with a range of enhanced features. The Golf eHybrid is designed for maximum comfort and its second-generation plug-in hybrid drive delivers an output of 150 kW (204 PS), with an all-electric range of up to 143 km (89 miles) (combined).

With an output of 200 kW (272 PS), the performance drive of the new Golf GTE even surpasses the level of the new Golf GTI due to its additional electric power. The all-electric range of the GTE has been increased to up to 131 kilometers (81 miles).

Power is transferred to the front wheels via a six-speed direct shift gearbox specially designed for the plug-in hybrid drive systems. The new plug-in hybrid drive is extremely efficient thanks to the changeover to a new 1.5-liter turbocharged gasoline engine (1.5 TSI evo2) with variable turbocharger geometry (VTG) plus highly efficient TSI-evo combustion process and a new 19.7 kWh battery (net / predecessor: 10.6 kWh).

In addition, both models come with a DC quick-charging function. On the outside, the distinguishing features of the two compact models include their updated front with LED Plus headlights, as well as redesigned LED tail light clusters and the standard-equipment 17-inch Richmond alloy wheels. A modern infotainment system and numerous driver assist systems increase comfort. The comfortable Golf eHybrid can now be configured and ordered at prices starting from €44,240. The dynamic Golf GTE is available from €46,745
