Three world premieres: Volkswagen presents progressive hybrid, natural gas and diesel systems at the Vienna Motor Symposium

World premiere II in Vienna: The new natural gas high-tech engine TGI 1.5 Evo
  • Hybrid innovation: the next Golf will come onto the market with a new, affordable 48V mild hybrid system
  • Natural gas trend: new 1.5 TGI Evo high-tech engine featuring VTG turbocharger and Miller combustion process
  • Diesel hybrid: new 2.0 TDI will be the first Volkswagen diesel engine to launch with a mild hybrid system

Volkswagen will be enhancing its model range by an innovative spectrum of completely new drive systems. These include affordable mild hybrid drives with 48V technology, new high-tech diesel engines that will also be available as hybrid variants and what is currently the world's most cutting-edge natural gas drive. Volkswagen has now announced initial facts as part of the Vienna Motor Symposium (26 to 27 April). The technologies showcased in Vienna as world premieres form a vital part of the progressively aligned Volkswagen drive strategy. It involves the combination of state-of-the-art petrol, diesel and natural gas engines, new hybrid systems and purely electric drives. With this combination, Volkswagen will among other things meet the CO2 fleet emissions target of 95 g/km prescribed in the EU as of 2020.
