2011 Volkswagen Touareg Hybrid by Je Design

German tuner, Je Design , is out to prove that even hybrid models can be cool when given the appropriate upgrades, and one of their favorite models - the Volkswagen Touareg - seems like a good place to start. Their latest package is for the Touareg Hybrid and includes both exterior and engine updates.

The aerodynamic kit includes a new sports radiator grill, front spoiler, front and back wheel arch kit, rear apron insert, roof spoiler, and rear hatch. Rounding off the package is a new set of 10x12 inch aluminum wheels, back and front. The wheels are available in three different finishes: shadow silver with a polished front surface, matte black with a matte silver front surface, and matte graphite silver with polished rim.

For the engine update, the tuner is offering dual exhaust pipes and optimized engine management for the supercharged V6 TSI engine. The electric motor was left untouched, but the other upgrades leave the Touareg with a total output of 440 HP and a peak torque of 464 lbs-ft. The sprint from 0 to 60 mph is now made in 5.9 seconds, while top speed has been increased to 158 mph.

On yes! I’m really fascinated with wheels and the rims of the VW is incredibly awesome! However, I’m a little disappointed in the performance of the car.

I have actually seen much better looking design packages for the Touareg, but I am still like the looks of this one. It feels very simple, yet aggressive at the same time.

I don’t think there is much difference in the weight. The design seems much dynamic and the engine upgrades also seems to provide more power to the vehicle. overall this will help in gaining strength, not weight.

I don’t think that they have put in much weight on this one, considering that they have made only a few upgrades on the car. And they have also balanced the distribution of the new parts

I am afraid that the have add some weight on the car because of the upgrades in the tuning package. However, i don’t think that this paint job is good, white body and black wheels is a traditional color actually!

one thing that I don’t like about this whole thing is that they didn’t tweak the engine. It would have been better if they added more power to these.

Yeah, me too. I like how simple this one came out. And the choice of colors are also a good one, a white body and black wheels are certainly a match.

This one actually worked for me very well. I like the fact that they kept the external modifications to the Touareg’s body to a minimum, making it simple looking.

Well,for me the traditional look of VW Touareg is kind of good. This one is somewhat edgy and I don’t think that v6 is a modern technology and i find it outdated.

The wheels I definitely love, they really look marvelous and fit it very well with the overall design of the Touareg. Certainly makes the car more aggressive too.

Looks a bit too plain too me, though I am really liking the white color. What I am really looking forward to are the engine updates, and the numbers that they have posted here don’t disappoint.

Normally I don’t like VW Touregs, but I might actually like to be seen driving around in this one.
