With its plug-in hybrid powertrain, the Golf GTE can become a zero-emission vehicle for a certain time: the four-door model can cover up to 50 km (NEDC) in all-electric mode. The system power output is 150 kW / 204 PS. Nevertheless, the NEDC consumption (combined) is only 1.6 l/100 km gasoline and 11.4 kWh/100 km electric power. The current version of the Golf GTE uses a predictive hybrid strategy in combination with a navigation system. If an approaching built-up area is detected, the GTE already activates the electric mode in advance. Orders for the Golf GTE as a new car can no longer be placed; however, some vehicles which have already been produced are still available.
