Volkswagen unveiled the five-door Golf GTE at the Geneva Motor Show in 2014, its second plug-in hybrid model to enter the market. The GTE offers a perfect combination of ultra-low emissions and enhanced performance.
The 1.4-litre four-cylinder engine, along with an electric motor, delivers 210bhp, with a six-speed gearbox. In hybrid mode, the GTE hot hatch blasts from 0-60mph in under 7.6 seconds and has an impressive top speed of 135mph.
The fuel economy of the GTE is an outstanding 166mpg. When switching to “e-mode" the GTE can go for 31 miles powered solely by the electric motor, making it ideal for city life. With just 39g/km of CO 2 emissions the GTE qualifies for appealingly low road tax, not to mention the £5,000 government grant available for electric vehicles. The GTE takes just 3.75 hours to fully charge from the mains.
The Golf GTE takes many of its design features from the Golf GTI, but features a distinctive front bumper with LED side lights. The one trim level available for the GTE boasts a slick rear spoiler, tail-light lenses and 18-inch alloy wheels for a sporty look.
Inside, the Golf GTE brings together the best of the Golf GTI interior, replacing the GTI’s red detailing with a deep, sultry blue colour. The generous interior space matches the standard of other Golf models, with plenty of room for two adults in the back and various handy storage compartments throughout.
