New Volkswagen Golf eHybrid engine
This new Volkswagen Golf eHybrid uses a detuned version of the plug-in hybrid setup found in the Golf GTE. This sees a 1.4-litre petrol engine linked up to an electric motor to produce 204hp.
That’s sent to the front wheels through a seven-speed DSG automatic gearbox, resulting in a 0-60mph time of 7.4 seconds and a 137mph top speed.
The Golf eHybrid can run on electricity up to 80mph, so you’ll be able to cover motorways without using the petrol engine, with an all-electric range of 44 miles. Volkswagen says it’ll do 235mpg, though you’ll need to plug in a lot to get this.
New Volkswagen Golf eHybrid specs
The Volkswagen Golf eHybrid is currently only available in Style trim. As standard, this sees a digital driver’s display and a 10-inch infotainment system fitted to the interior.
LED head- and tailights, plus 16-inch alloy wheels add a bit of, err, style to the outside too.
You’ll get driver aids like adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking and road sign recognition too.
New Volkswagen Golf eHybrid price and release date
Pricing for the Volkswagen Golf eHybrid kicks off at £32,995, making it the cheapest plug-in hybrid version of the hatchback you can currently get.
Orders are now being taken, with deliveries to follow imminently.
