Volkswagen Golf GTE Coming


It has been reported that VW will introduce a new performance variant of the Golf named the GTE.
With 'E' standing for electric, this plug-in hybrid will use the same powerplant as Audi A3 e-tron. Power will come from a 1.4L turbo four-cylinder connected with an electric motor for a total output of 204hp. The numbers for the GTE aren't great, but moderate for a hybrid. 0-62mph will take 7.6 seconds with the 6-speed DSG transmission and it will have a top speed of 135mph. Similar to the GTD, performance will only come from the GTI sourced parts including suspension, brakes, interior, and exterior styling.
It is expected to hit the market next year (2015), for Europe only at this time.
