The 2015 Golf GTE combines a 75 kilowatt electric motor mounted inside the gearbox and 8.8 kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery pack with a 1.4-litre, TSI direct-injection gasoline engine capable of producing 148 horsepower.
Complete with a six-speed DSG gearbox designed specifically for use with hybrid drivetrains, Volkswagen says the Golf GTE is capable of producing a total power output of 201 horsepower (150 kilowatts) and a maximum available torque of 350 Nm (258 lbs ft) when both engine and motor work in concert.
In all-electric mode, Volkswagen claims a range of up to 31 miles per charge are possible, although based on previous brief drives with the Golf GTE we’d suggest a real-world range of between 20 and 25 miles per charge is more realistic.
