Volkswagen Golf GTE Priced From 36,900 Euros ($48,390 USD) In Germany
Volkswagen has officially announced pricing for the upcoming Golf GTE.
The Golf GTE will starts at 36,900 Euros ($48,390 USD) in Germany when it launches later this year.
At that price, the Golf GTE commands a 2,000 Euro premium, in Germany, over the pure electric Golf BEV.
The sporty PHEV Golf GTE (GT Electric) features a 148 hp 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine and a 107 hp electric motor.
Here’s a look at somespecs:
- 0 to 60 mph: 7.6 seconds
- Electric-only range: 31 miles (NEDC – about 20 miles on the US EPA)
- 8.8 kWh lithium-ion battery
- Top speed in electric mode: 81 mph
- Top speed: 135 mph
- Total range: 600 miles
- Recharging time of 2 hours 240-volt 16-amp
Volkswagen seems to insist that the Golf GTE isn’t U.S.-bound. Instead, it says that the Audi A3 e-tron will be the VW Group’s initial plug-in hybrid offering in the U.S. However, we at InsideEVs still firmly believe that VW will bring the Golf GTE to the U.S., perhaps only in station wagon form.
