This new model continues down the same engineering path: it’s positioned as an eco-friendly alternative to the Golf GTI, with a turbocharged 1.4-litre four-cylinder petrol engine. When combined, the motor and engine accelerate the Golf GTE from 0 to 62 mph in just 6.7 seconds delivering power of up to 245 PS. The lithium-ion battery sits beneath the rear seat, with the 40-litre fuel tank relocated to a position underneath the boot floor. In addition to the three intuitive hybrid operating modes, the pure electric e-mode is ideal for urban centers – and can be used for distances of up to 40 miles. Charging, is claimed to take 3hrs 40mins using a 3.6kW wall-box, or 5hrs on mains power.
