Volkswagen unveils hybrid Tiguan GTE Active Concept

Volkswagen has unveiled its Tiguan GTE Active Concept, a hybrid vehicle based on the existing seven-passenger crossover of the same name.

The GTE will have separate electric motors for the front and rear wheels, and in normal driving conditions the vehicle is rear-wheel driven.

The driver can activate four-wheel drive, or the system can activate itself if road conditions call for it.

Besides the electric engines, the GTE is powered by a 110kW (148hp) turbocharged petrol engine – which can power the front wheels or charge the electric motors’ batteries.

GTE Mode

The Tiguan will have multiple driving modes, including EV and GTE.

GTE mode gives the car maximum power, resulting in a top speed of 193km/h and a 0-100km/h time of 6.4 seconds.
