E his week is carried out [1.99901 million] festival Wörthersee and in this context was presented the Volkswagen Golf GTE Sport, a prototype that shows [1.99901 million] the most advanced in hybrid technology German brand that can offer today.
A plug-in hybrid with carbon fiber body and 400 hp for Wörthersee.
Aesthetically, this Golf has little to do with the series model, but its appearance based on the Volkswagen GTI Supersport Vision Gran Turismo, a model developed specifically for the game ‘Gran Turismo 6’. His body is futuristic-looking and particularly sporty, even while maintaining the main stylistic features that define it as a Golf.
Its streamlined body is made from [1.99901 million] carbon fiber , with a front in which light clusters, rather thin design are combined with a large grill that integrates in turn two large air intakes. A stand side-opening doors gull-wing and posterior aspect of radical right.
If the appearance of the body seemed futuristic, simply browse inside to discover a design that resembles a product of science fiction . It has a large central tunnel which acts as divider for the two front seats, a fully digital instrument made of transparent layers and a decent driving a spaceship.
But beyond those of a conceptual work decorations, the most important of this Volkswagen Golf GTE Sport Concept lies under your body. Mechanically, this GTE uses a plug-in hybrid propulsion, based on a TSI engine block 1.6-liter taken directly from the Polo R WRC, [1.99901 million] associated with two electric motors , one on the front and the other on the back.
The TSI produces 300 horsepower with 400 Nm of torque, while the electric motor produces 100 hp, which achieved a combined output of [1.99901 million] 400 horsepower and 670 Nm of torque transmitted to all 4 wheels through their system [1.99901 million] AWD .
This mechanical assembly allows the GTE accelerate 0-100 km / h in 4.3 seconds and achieve a top speed of 280 kilometers per hour. But these benefits are also achieved with high energy efficiency, since fuel consumption is just 2.0 liters per 100 kilometers while its rechargeable lithium-ion batteries allow their driving in purely electric mode up to 50 kilometers.
