The Golf GTE, which made its world debut just last month at the Geneva Motor Show, combines petrol and electric motors to produce 204 PS and giving a theoretical range of 580 miles. It is driven by two engines: a 1.4-litre 150 PS TSI direct-injection petrol engine and a 102 PS electric motor. Together, they produce power of 204 PS and torque of 350 Nm (258 lbs ft). Using both engines, the Golf GTE can sprint from zero to 62 mph in 7.6 seconds and on to 138 mph, and it can still hit 81 mph on electric power alone. Yet it returns a combined cycle figure of 188 mpg* and CO2 emissions of 35 g/km* (*provisional data).
