The Golf GTE

Double the driving pleasure.
                                      The Golf GTE.

Driving pleasure as standard: the maximum output of the Golf GTE is 180 kW (245 PS).  This impressive value is achieved thanks to the model’s efficient plug-in hybrid technology.

The Golf GTE has many highlights. Check out these three:

Agility and aerodynamics – the Golf GTE has not just internalised these values, it also wears them on its sleeve. For instance, they are clearly demonstrated by the blue trim strip that stretches across the entire front from the Volkswagen badge to the dynamic design of the LED headlights*. As a GTE, it doesn’t have to hide its tailpipes away, though behind the chrome-plated diffuser is still a good position. That’s because, when it’s combined with the striking LED tail light clusters and roof spoiler, it makes sure the entire rear has an extra bold impact.    


* In conjunction with the optional IQ.LIGHT - LED matrix headlights, the blue trim strip is continued in the headlights.


Your Golf GTE features power and efficiency

The powerful hybrid drive in the Golf GTE is made up of an almost silent electric motor with seamless power transmission and an innovative 1.4 l TSI direct injection petrol engine with 110 kW (150 PS), which generates an incredibly dynamic drive with low consumption. When combined, the motor and engine accelerate the Golf GTE from 0 to 100 km/h in just 6.7 seconds – and up to a top speed of 225 km/h. While doing so, they deliver power of up to 180 kW (245 PS) and generate a formidable torque of up to 400 Nm. In addition to the three intuitive hybrid operating modes, the pure electric e-mode is ideal for urban centres – and can be used for distances of up to 62 km (NEDC)*. This means: You can drive with electricity in the city, use both power units when overtaking on country roads, and the TSI engine then increases the range on long trips. Once you get back home again, you can recharge the electric motor’s battery in no more than 5 hours using a normal socket. With the optional wallbox or at a public charging station, including the optional Mode 3 Type 2 charging cable, the battery can reach a full charge in as few as 3 hours and 40 minutes.


* Depending on the driving style and power requirements of internal consumers, such as air conditioning or lighting. In this way, you can drive many everyday routes inexpensively and, above all, locally emission-free - day after day.



Outside: Fast-paced.
Inside: Chilled out.

All of the components inside the GTE are carefully tailored to one another to give the vehicle its distinctively sporty look. This starts with the stainless steel pedals and extends to the decorative trims and hallmark stitching all the way to the black headliner. The LED background lighting adds accents of light in all the right places. And you’ll also notice straight away that the digital future has arrived in the cockpit. These features are dominated by high-resolution displays and the majority of functions, like the radio, air conditioning system and lighting, can be operated using touch-sensitive surfaces and sliders. Let’s touch.
