A turbocharged petrol engine meets a high torque electric motor
The Golf GTE has maximum performance in an instant: pressing the GTE button combines the driving force of the petrol and electric engines, giving you a double dose of power that accelerates you from 0-62mph in just 7.6 seconds.
The GTE’s impressive acceleration and sports handling delivers firm steering and suspension, so you can enjoy a comparable thrill you’ve come to expect from our GTI range.
Power and efficiency
The refusal to compromise means that the GTE range pioneers a whole new category: the high-performance plug-in hybrid. GTE engines deliver an advanced petrol engine, but with the added capability of offering zero emissions when you’re using only the electric engine.
The GTE has CO2 emissions of up to 40 grams per km with an impressive fuel consumption of up to 166 mpg, so there’s no need to sacrifice engine efficiency for driving enjoyment.
