Wolfsburg apprentices present first GTI that also features electric drive system at Wörthersee meeting

Wörthersee GTI meeting 2017: the Golf GTI First Decade from Wolfsburg
  • Premiere 1: Golf GTI First Decade combines 410 PS (300 kW) petrol engine with 12 kW electric motor for rear and all-wheel drive
  • Premiere 2: Apprentices from Saxony present their Golf GTE Estate impulsE with 165 kW hybrid system rating

Tomorrow, a very special Golf GTI is to make its world debut at the Wörthersee meeting. 13 apprentices from Volkswagen and Sitech are waiting anxiously as they will be presenting the first GTI that also features electric propulsion: the Golf GTI First Decade. The name indicates that this show car is the 10th apprentices' GTI to be presented by talented young people from Wolfsburg at the traditional GTI fans' meeting in Austria. The Golf GTI First Decade was created in slightly less than nine months on the basis of ideas provided by apprentices in six vocations. In the interior and exterior design, the five women and eight men were inspired by the many and varied blue tones of water and sky on the Wörthersee.
