The e-up! is the electric version of Volkswagen’s multi-award-winning city car. The e-up! has all the attributes that make its petrol-powered sibling such a success – room for four adults and their luggage, nippy handling and the equipment and feel of a much larger car.
Based on the multi-award-winning Golf hatchback, the e-Golf offers the same virtues of practicality, refinement and advanced technology, but with a purely electric drivetrain and no tailpipe emissions.
The name of Golf GTE reflects its standing in the line-up alongside the petrol-powered GTI and diesel GTD, while its pricing also reinforces this position. The new car is driven by two engines: a 1.4-litre 150 PS TSI direct-injection petrol engine and a 102 PS electric motor. Together, they produce a maximum power of 204 PS and a theoretical range of 580 miles.
The eagerly awaited Passat GTE plug in hybrid is now available to order. Like the Golf GTE, it has two engines: a 1.4 litre 156 PS TSI direct injection and a 115 PS electric motor, producing a maximum of 218PS when combined. The Passat GTE will be available in both Saloon and Estate forms and will have a 0-62 mph time of 7.4 seconds.
