This makes 0-100km/h done in an easy feat of 7.6 seconds and a top speed of 222km/h. According to VW, the Golf GTE boasts an average fuel consumption of 1.5l / 100km with CO2 emissions of just 35g/km.
The car's battery can power the car by itself for 50 kilometers and up to a speed of 130km/h. Total driving range is an insane 930 kilometers.
The battery weighs 120 kg (264 pounds), bringing the car's total to 1,524 kg (3,360 pounds) and can be charged from an ordinary domestic mains outlet in three and a half hours and from a fast charger in two and a half hours.
