An increasing number of Passat police vehicles are moving around silently on the streets of Lower Saxony. The new patrol cars' secret is concealed under their bodywork, which sports a striking blue and yellow livery. On the outside, it's only the characteristic GTE lettering and light signatures that give those in the know a hint of the vehicles' distinctive technical attributes: the Volkswagen Passat GTE Variant once again has the honour of blazing a trail for all the others. With the combined power of its drives, it is already demonstrating the performance expected of tomorrow's police vehicles in terms of suitability for daily use.
21 of these spacious estate cars were just recently delivered, all bearing the same police livery, as part of the pilot project ‘lautlos&einsatzbereit' (silent and ready for deployment). The pioneering GTE drive technology can now demonstrate just how suitable for daily use the latest hybrid solutions are, whatever the weather – and even in the extreme conditions of demanding round-the-clock police use.
