VW Golf Plug-in Hybrid Coming Soon

  The Volkswagen Golf is one of the top-selling cars ever, with about 30 million sold. (The first Golfs came out in the mid-1970s.) Recently, it was announced that there will be a gas-electric plug-in hybrid version coming soon. Called the GTE, it will have two engines. The gas-powered engine will be 1.4 liters, will be turbo-charged, and will have direct injection. Also, a 107 hp electric motor will be paired with a 8.8 kwh lithium-ion battery.

  The cost isn’t known yet, but the folks at Inside EVs said it might be in the low to mid $30,000s, a bit higher than we heard in November.

  Some other specs:

  Total driving range with gas and electric motors: 600 miles

  Electric-only range: 31 miles

  Recharging time: 2 hours

  AutoWeek test drove a prototype and said it got almost 60 mpg. The GTE might be an effective head-to-head competitor with the Toyota Prius Plug-in, especially with its sportier appeal. Its sibling, the GTI, has been known to be both quick and nimble, so the GTE might inherit some of these same characteristics. The Prius seems to be more of a typical sedate, but efficient commuter vehicle. Another hybrid competitor in the same price range is the Chevy Volt, which may not be as quick or as athletic in its handling as the forthcoming GTE, so the GTE might do well competing against the Volt as well.
