Robert Llewellyn of the internet web-show Fully Charged has decided to take another, more detailed look at the Volkswagen Golf GTE.

Mr. Llewellyn says he thinks that the plug-in will have long-standing credibility when we look back at the history of electric vehicles, by opening the door to a lot of new buyers who aren't familiar with the technology.

Just as a primer the Golf GTE retails for about £28,035  before grants in the UK/36,900 in Germany,  and has a 8.8 kWh battery giving the VW 50 km (31 miles) of range on the NEDC scale (~22 miles EPA), while also letting the car zip to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 7.6 seconds.
