The Volkswagen Golf GTE Plug-in Hybrid

The Golf GTE Plug-in Hybrid has many highlights.

Check out these three:

1. Exterior: Offering you a sporty, elegant appearance

2. Interior: Enjoy fantastically sporty comfort

3. Plug-in-hybrid technology with 245 HP.


Offering you a sporty, elegant appearance.

Agility and aerodynamics – the Golf GTE Plug-in Hybrid has not just internalised these values, it also wears them on its sleeve. For instance, they are clearly demonstrated by the blue trim strip that stretches across the entire front from the Volkswagen badge to the dynamic design of the IQ.LIGHTs - LED Matrix headlights. 

As a GTE, it doesn’t have to hide its tailpipes away, though behind the chrome-plated diffuser is still a good position. That’s because, when it’s combined with the striking LED tail light clusters and roof spoiler, it makes sure the entire rear has an extra bold impact.    ​

Marathon runner or sprinter? The range of wheels offers you both

Understatement or show – which do you prefer? With the wheels for the Golf GTE Plug-in Hybrid, you can enhance your personal style – and arrive looking great.

Real highlights in bad weather

Fog, heavy snowfall or rain? The standard LED front fog lights that come in the new 5-honeycomb design and are built into the bumper, provide additional light. Turn them on quickly and the world will look pretty different. And your Golf GTE Plug-in Hybrid will look even more striking.

The highlight in your Golf GTE Plug-in Hybrid: IQ.LIGHT

The Golf GTE Plug-in Hybrid is already fitted with visibly dynamic IQ.LIGHTs - LED Matrix headlights as standard that stretch all the way round to the side wings, while sleek LED tail light clusters dominate at the rear. Your Golf GTE Plug-in Hybrid's extra powerful IQ.LIGHT - LED Matrix headlights are fitted with the “Dynamic Light Assist” main-beam control to light up the road.

IQ.LIGHTs also display innovative dynamic turn signals that use an animated strip of lights to show which way you are turning.


Outside: Fast-paced.
Inside: Chilled out.

All of the components inside the Golf GTE Plug-in Hybrid are carefully tailored to one another to give the vehicle its distinctively sporty look. This starts with the stainless steel pedals and extends to the decorative trims and hallmark stitching all the way to the black headliner.

The LED background lighting adds accents of light in all the right places. And you’ll also notice straight away that the digital future has arrived in the cockpit. These features are dominated by high-resolution displays and the majority of functions, like the radio, air conditioning system and lighting, can be operated using touch-sensitive surfaces and sliders. Let’s touch.

A touch more intuitive

The classic function knobs in the cockpit have largely made way for touch-sensitive surfaces in the new Golf GTE Plug-in Hybrid. This allows you to control the Climatronic, for example, simply and intuitively using buttons and sliders. Even the leather trim touch multifunction sport steering wheel can be operated with a simple tap of the finger.

Technology that enables you to look ahead

Being able to check all the most important information while also keeping an eye on the road: this is the main advantage of the standard head-up display in your Golf GTE Plug-in Hybrid. Part of the windscreen becomes a projection area that can display your speed, messages from your driver assist systems or navigation instructions. The projection itself is still clearly legible, even when light is shining directly onto the windscreen. And you can switch off the display at any time if you no longer need it.

Sit back and relax

he Golf GTE Plug-in Hybrid look is visible in every corner of the interior. While the premium sport seats in the front are covered in durable fabric in “Scale Paper” design, the hallmark blue accents of the GTE design are not only visible on the leather steering wheel but also on the textile floor mats that come in a complementary colour scheme.
Fancy an extra dose of elegance? The optional high-quality “Vienna” leather equipment is smooth, creating a chic, premium feel.

Everything adapts to you

When combined with the standard “Discover Pro” radio navigation system, the Digital Cockpit Pro is upgraded to the Innovision Cockpit. This means that both displays, measuring 10 inches (25.4 cm) and 10.25 inches (26.04 cm), can be merged together. The resulting landscape display not only contains classic content like the rev counter, speedometer and mileage counter, but also other useful data in an even clearer and more detailed display. You can even set up favourite functions on the home screen, just like the way you would configure your smartphone.


Your Golf GTE Plug-in Hybrid features power and efficiency

The powerful hybrid drive in the Golf GTE Plug-in Hybrid is made up of an almost silent electric motor with seamless power transmission and an innovative 1.4 l TSI direct injection petrol engine with 110 kW (150 PS), which generates an incredibly dynamic drive with low consumption. When combined, the motor and engine accelerate the Golf GTE Plug-in Hybrid from 0 to 100 km/h in just 6.7 seconds – and up to a top speed of 225 km/h. While doing so, they deliver power of up to 180 kW (245 PS) and generate a formidable torque of up to 400 Nm.

In addition to the three intuitive hybrid operating modes, the pure electric e-mode is ideal for urban centres – and can be used for distances of up to 62 km (NEDC)*. This means: You can drive with electricity in the city, use both power units when overtaking on country roads, and the TSI engine then increases the range on long trips. Once you get back home again, you can recharge the electric motor’s battery in no more than 5 hours using a normal socket. With the optional wallbox or at a public charging station, including the optional Mode 3 Type 2 charging cable, the battery can reach a full charge in as few as 3 hours and 40 minutes.

* Depending on the driving style and power requirements of internal consumers, such as air conditioning or lighting. In this way, you can drive many everyday routes inexpensively and, above all, locally emission-free - day after day.

You will get further than you think with one battery charge

Why fuel with petrol when electricity is cheaper? With the Golf GTE Plug-in Hybrid, you can charge the battery for your electric motor easily using a normal domestic socket. After no more than 5 hours, the liquid-cooled lithium-ion rechargeable battery is fully charged and gives you a range of up to 62 kilometres (as per NEDC)*. With the optional wallbox or at a public charging station, including the optional Mode 3 Type 2 charging cable, the battery can reach a full charge in as few as 3 hours and 40 minutes.

* Depending on your driving style and the power required by internal consumers such as air conditioning or lighting. In this way you can drive many everyday routes cheaply and, above all, free of emissions on a local level – day after day.

Power Coupling - The “boost” for a package of power

Full power: When using the “Boost” function, the electric motor works in conjunction with the TSI direct injection petrol engine. This means that the power from both drive units is consolidated and you have access to extra torque. The function can be selected in “Hybrid/Sport” mode – meaning that the full power of your Golf GTE Plug-in Hybrid is just a button touch away.

No more gear changes, but no less fun

Climb in and hit the gas: the DSG dual clutch gearbox with its brand new smaller selector lever guarantees fun behind the wheel without any interruptions. That’s because you can change seamlessly between the gears and even reduce your fuel consumption. Pressing on the selector lever enables you to easily select your chosen driving mode, which is then activated via the electrically connected shift-by-wire gearbox. Particularly handy in a traffic jam: When combined with the optional Travel Assist feature, the system can help you to pull away and brake.
