Volkswagen to offer electrified versions of its models
  • Extensive hybrid programme for the next Golf is the starting point for the comprehensive electrification of conventional drives
  • New 48-V mild hybrid is the first step into the world of efficient electrified models
  • 48-V starter generator is a versatile all-rounder

Volkswagen is to launch an electric version of its globally best-selling vehicle – the Volkswagen Golf, offering a sustainable, efficient and powerful alternative. The introduction of innovative, new hybrid systems in the eighth generation of Golf vehicles marks a new era for the brand with regard to drive technology. In the future, Volkswagen will gradually electrify almost every vehicle in its range of models. The company is offering a first look at the future of electrified drive systems as part of the International Vienna Motor Symposium – one of the world’s most important congresses on the automotive technology of today and the future.
