GTE: Passat goes
For the first time, the Passat GTE, with a combination of TSI engine and E engine, was exhibited in Paris. In “electric mode” it can drive up to 31 miles using just electricity, so without emissions. Its mix of combustion and electric engine enables a performance of 160 kW (218 hp) with a range of more than 600 miles. Maximum torque is 400 Nm, with a consumption of 2.0 l/100 km and 13.0 kWh/100 km, which corresponds to less than 45 g/km CO2. The Passat GTE will be available as an Estate and a Saloon car.
