Volkswagen Golf Hybrid - first official images
Volkswagen will unveil tomorrow at the Geneva the first hybrid version of the Golf. It will be powered by a combination of high-tech diesel engine, electric motor and 7-speed DSG technology.
Exhibited for the first time at the Geneva Motor Show, the concept car consumes no more than 3.4 litres of diesel fuel per 100 kilometres. This powerful full-hybrid Golf TDI Hybrid can be operated either in internal-combustion mode only or in a combination mode of powerful yet thrifty TDI and electric motor.
The car is also designed to run on emissions-free electric power only. Power transmission to the front axle is managed by 7-speed DSG technology. In city traffic, the vehicle’s automatic stop-start system will even automatically switch off diesel operations.
