With all the bad press about Volkswagen last week, We Blog think it is time to say something good about the guys from Wolfsburg.
Here it is! The Golf GTE Sport Concept.
It is a look way into the future of the Golf GTI and what the design team at Volkswagen are thinking.
It is a plug-in hybrid that produces 400ps, powered by 3 motors. There is a mode button when driving the Golf GTE Concept that when pressed you will be able to drive up to 50 kilometres on electric power only, driving like this will produce zero emissions.
We Blog Any Car stats:
1.6 4 cylinder engine 229 ps

Visualisation of the racing line (when on a race track)
Three transparent displays one infront the other for the driver. The smallest display (closes to the driver) shows information such as the gear selected . The middle transparent display has more information on it such as a power meter and electric boost. The last transparent display has the information of speed and range. The last transparent display will always be in the drivers constant eye line when driving.
The passenger can see the car data for example, acceleration, lateral forces.

We Blog thoughts……………….
This is a much needed highlight with everything that is going on with VW. It would be nice to see such a vehicle being produced but we don’t think it will ever arrive. If we were on the board at VW we would be lobbying for this to be the new Scirocco. Or could it be a another Golf variant?
