The New Kind of Fast

Fun at the push of a button – and 0–100 km/h in just 7.6 seconds. The new Golf GTE4 combines the dynamics of a GTI5 with the sustainability of an e-Golf. Driving fun guaranteed.

The Plug-in Hybrid from Volkswagen

The Plug-in Hybrid from Volkswagen
More than the sum of its parts

If you want to work well together, you have to
be able to rely on each other, in every situation.
Just like the electric and conventional engines
in the Plug-in Hybrids from Volkswagen.

Amazing efficiency

The powerful and economical direct-injection petrol TSI engine and the 40-liter tank form a dynamic partnership with the innovative electric motor, playing to their strengths to make longer distances at higher speeds a possibility. Thanks to a sophisticated electronic drive system and a gear box with multiple clutches, these two distinct partners cooperate smoothly. No jolts, no outages. The electric motor and turbo-charged petrol engine in the Plug-in Hybrids from Volkswagen make a well- matched team that complement one another perfectly.






Always energized

Developed with Volkswagen know-how in Germany, the highly efficient electric motor in Plug-in Hybrids like the Golf GTE excels in urban areas. It’s almost silent, and responds instantly. In electric-only mode, the e-motor delivers emissions-free driving in cities and residential areas – without noise pollution. The Plug-in Hybrids’ performance gets even more impressive when the electric motor switches to the “boost” setting and supports the conventional engine, so the vehicle surges forward. Everything counts for more: the Plug-in Hybrid is more than the sum of its parts.

Fuel consumption l / 100 km: 1.7-1.5 (combined). Electricity consumption in kWh per 100 km: 12.4-11.4 (combined). CO2-emissions in g / km: 39-35 (combined). Efficiency class: A +

The Power of two engines.
The Golf GTE at a glance.4

Strong and efficient: the two motors of the Golf GTE

The Golf GTE features the best of two motor worlds: a TSI petrol engine with 110 kW (150 hp) and a highly innovative electric engine developed by Volkswagen at 75kW (102 hp), both playing together at full power and responding to any situation perfectly. In 100% electric mode, the Golf GTE offers locally emission-free driving: in residential areas, on urban motorways and expressways it’s got impressive torque, speeds of up to 130 km/h, a 50 km range and practically no engine noise. Higher speeds are no problem for the hybrid and GTE modes, either.


150 kW (204 hp)


350 Nm


Speedy all-rounder

The combined petrol and electric engine is perfectly complemented by the highly efficient 6-speed DSG gearbox that’s been specifically designed for the Golf GTE. The package of hybrid drive system and DSG gearbox ensures that the Golf GTE takes just 4.9 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 60 km/h, making it ideal for the rapid acceleration needed in city traffic. The Golf GTE needs 7.6 seconds to reach 100 km/h, and cuts a dash on speedy stretches. And all this with a 939 km maximum range.

Reliability guaranteed: the high-voltage battery

The Golf GTE’s high-voltage battery is not only extremely reliable, it’s also extremely long-lasting – that’s why Volkswagen gives it an 8-year or 160,000-km warranty, whichever comes first. It’s been designed to take up minimal space and be optimally protected in the event of a crash.

Drive further with regenerative braking

Regenerative braking charges the battery using brake energy while you’re driving, increasing the electric range of the Golf GTE. When the footbrake is used, the Golf GTE recuperates electricity, which is stored in the high-voltage battery and later used for driving. Switch to recuperation mode B, and the battery also recovers energy when the driver takes their foot off the accelerator.


Fast and efficient

With an advanced plug-in hybrid like the Golf GTE, you can have sustained power and dynamic drive without feeling bad about it. The Golf GTE consumes on average only 1.5 litres of petrol per 100 km and 11.4 kWh of electricity (at NEDC). It emits just 35 grammes of CO2 per kilometer. Small-car stats with the performance you’d expect from a GTI.






35 g CO2/km


Safer cornering

The optional XDS advanced electronic differential lock is an extension of the famous Electronic Stabilisation Program (ESP) system, and improves road holding during fast cornering by employing unilateral brake pressure (within the limits of the system).


A secret assignment for the Golf GTE4

The new Golf GTE is silent when it counts the most, but delivers full power when there’s a need for speed: even an action-packed chase in a spy movie isn’t a problem. In fact it’s a thriller for the driver.

At first glance, the new Golf GTE strongly resembles the GTI. No problem with that. But if you're lucky enough to get a little closer, you’ll notice some differences.

Details include the blue e-Design accents and a blue-backed Volkswagen logo both front and rear. The black grille has a closed finish with GTE lettering. The bumper pulls off a sporty look with its distinctive fins.

The new full LED headlights and LED daytime running lights in the signature C-shape ensure perfectly lit streets. Add compact LED spots and blue accents that only feature on the e-Golf and Golf GTE models and you have a striking look.

Even when the darkness falls the new Golf GTE stays in the spotlight – its own spotlight. The dark red partial LED rear lights catch the eye of anyone it overtakes.

The new Golf GTE.4
Innovation with a familiar face.

If you make big advances on the road, you need to match that progress inside the car. That's why the Golf GTE has top-of-the-range sports seating with fabric upholstery in the “Clark” design.

With the three-spoke, multifunction leather and aluminium finish steering wheel featuring a Golf GTE logo you have the Golf GTE under control in every situation.

The gear knob in the centre console has aluminium optics with blue rings, and the gear mount is finished with blue stitching.

The Discover Pro GPS system is easy to operate, with an intuitive colour display on a 20.3 cm (8 inch) TFT touch screen.

Clean lines: the Golf GTE interior

The Golf GTE’s maximum range is 939 km – enough to drive from Flensburg to Munich.

The Golf GTE needs just 3.5 hours to fully recharge at an electrical socket. That's half an hour less than the running time of Wagner's Tristan and Isolde. And the engine will start even if the battery is empty.

The built-in "Discover Pro" touchscreen radio-navigation system (optional) is 20.3 cm (8 inches) wide. The same size as an iPad Mini.

The Golf GTE’s maximum power is 150 kW (204 hp). That’s 1.5 times higher than the average for new cars sold in Germany per year.

The Golf GTE’s top speed is 222 km/h. At this speed you could get from Hamburg to Berlin in 1 hour and 20 minutes.

On average, the Golf GTE consumes 1.5 liters of petrol and 11.4 kilowatt hours of electricity in a single New European Driving Cycle over 100 km. Less than half as much petrol as the most fuel-efficient microcars with conventional engines.

The Golf GTE can cover 50 km with electrical power alone. That’s enough for most trips: eight out of ten Germans drive less than 50 km a day.

The amount of CO2 emitted by the Golf GTE per kilometre driven is 35 grams (NEDC). You generate nearly five times as much CO2 boiling a litre and a half of water on the stove.

The GTE: Strength in numbers4

Volkswagen combines modern conventional engines and innovative electric motors in one car – and surpasses itself. The highlights in numbers.

The Golf GTE4 of the future

 A sporty carbon chassis, a newly designed passenger cabin, a 295 kW (400 horsepower) plug-in hybrid engine and four-wheel drive; this Volkswagen study for the Golf GTE Sport shows what happens when you propel the GTE idea into the future.
