With the Golf GTE Sport, a concept car with a carbon body, newly conceived cockpit and a 295 kW / 400 PS plug-in hybrid all-wheel drive system, Volkswagen is showing what is achievable when the GT idea gets catapulted into the future.
The Golf GTE Sport transfers the Volkswagen GT tradition into tomorrow’s world. A total of three motors – combined in a 295 kW / 400 PS plug-in hybrid drive system – power the high-tech Golf, which is largely made of carbon. The 280 km/h concept car leaves the usual boundaries between road car and racing car behind: its progressive hybrid system combined with high-tech all-wheel drive, the lightweight body, optimum aerodynamic downforce levels, a high-precision chassis, a new motorsport cockpit and an extraordinary seating concept facilitate breathtaking performance on the racetrack. At the press of a button, however, the concept car is equally able to drive up to 50 kilometres by electric motor alone and thus with zero emissions.
