Ready for silent deployment

The new Passat police cars are racking up the kilometres as they put state-of-the-art Volkswagen plug-in hybrid technology to the test in round-the-clock crime-fighting deployment
Blue is the colour: the blue GTE lettering not only goes excellently with the police vehicles' blue light – it also identifies the Passat as a pioneering plug-in hybrid
The cars can travel up to 50 kilometres on electric drive alone

The power reserve and handling of the Volkswagen Passat GTE Variant meet the high demands made by the police
