2017 Volkswagen Passat GTE Features – VW – Video
The Passat GTE is a Plug-in Hybrid. It is powered by an electric motor and a TSI engine, allowing you to enjoy all of the benefits of e-Mobility but without compromising in any way.
You start your Passat GTE in quiet, emission-free e-Mode, with just the electric motor running. Because its acceleration is linear, a torque of 330 Nm is available right from the outset. If you activate GTE mode at the start, meaning that the combustion engine is also switched on, the Volkswagen plug-in hybrid will even accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.4 or 7.6 seconds (depending on the model).
In combined driving mode, which means an interplay between the electric motor and TSI engine, the new Passat GTE can achieve an impressive range of more than 500 km.
