First, there were the all-new 2015 Volkswagen Golf and GTI models. Then came the diesel-powered Golf GTD. Now, Volkswagen will create a sporty-hatchback GT trilogy with the GTE.

GTE stands for GT Electric, and it will be the badge worn by Volkswagen's upcoming Golf plug-in hybrid model--distinct from "e-Golf," the model name for the battery-electric Golf that will be sold in the U.S. late this year or early next year.

Autocar reports that the plug-in hybrid performance machine will use the same powertrain as the Audi A3 e-tron, which rides on the same Volkswagen Group MQB platform as the Golf.

That means motivation will come from a 1.4-liter direct-injected and turbocharged, four-cylinder gasoline engine with 148 horsepower, paired with an electric motor good for an additional 107 hp. An 8.8-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery pack provides electricity.

Since the gasoline engine and electric motor have different power peaks, their individual outputs can't just be added together. The GTE should have a total system output similar to the A3 e-tron's 204 hp and 258 pound-feet of torque.

That power is sent to the front wheels through a specially-adapted e-S tronic six-speed dual-clutch transmission.

That drivetrain will reportedly propel this plug-in from 0 to 62 mph in 7.6 seconds and reach a top speed of 135 mph.

Volkswagen Head Designer Klaus Bischoff's crew created a look that merges GTI insignia with those of the e-Golf, creating an unmistakable identity. Klaus Bischoff explains the differences: "The presence of the electric drive is visually expressed by the prominent C-signature of the daytime running lights on the Golf GTE. Meanwhile, all other front design elements bridge to the GTI."

In those places where red dominates on the GTI, blue is used in the GTE. Bischoff continues: "A radiator crossbar running into the headlights provides further sporty accents within the context of Volkswagen electric mobility." Like the e-Golf, the four-door Golf GTE will launch with LED dual headlights as standard. The turn signals, parking light, and smoked numberplate lighting also use LED technology. Side skirts and a roof-edge spoiler provide further parallels with the GTI and GTD. Meanwhile, the aerodynamic 16-inch (standard), 17-inch, and 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels were designed especially for the GTE.


Like the exterior, the sporty interior of the Volkswagen Golf GTE reveals a clear relationship to its other two GT series counterparts. However, just as on the exterior, the interior's red accents have also turned to blue. Klaus Bischoff says: "Volkswagen's e-mobility color of blue creates attractive contrasts in the car's seating, decorative seams, and material design. Moreover, the blue ambience lighting builds a visual bridge to the world of e-mobility." The light blue decorative seams on the leather-wrapped steering wheel, on the edges of the floormats, on the seats, and on the shifter grip are perfectly matched with the exterior features of the Golf GTE.

All Golf cars are equipped with a touchscreen. In the case of the VW Golf GTE the high-resolution 6.5-inch "Composition Media" radio system is standard. The "Discover Pro" radio-navigation system is available as an option. Both units are equipped with many additional functions on the GTE. These include a "driving range monitor", an "energy flow display", "zero emission statistics", "e-manager", and—with the optional navigation system—the "360° driving range". Additionally, all Golf GTE owners can download the "Volkswagen Car-Net e-Remote" app to their smartphone free-of-charge and use it to control functions and access information. source: netcarshow.com, greencarreports.com
