This car is already sold out in 2015 for NL! A tax-beneficial plug-in hybrid. Next year, the benefits will be less interesting. But how is it as a car? Up front, the charging socket, right next to the VW emblem. At the back: no batteries, they have swapped places with the fuel tank. Still plenty of space to haul things around. Performance then. It’s got the Golf GTE-sourced 1.4 TSI with 156 PS. Also, a 115 PS electric motor. Together they peak it 218 PS, which is nice. 0-100 kph takes 7.4 seconds, which is quick! But it’s meant as an economic car. And it doesn’t work like a range extended hybrid. The petrol engine helps with acceleration and on motorways, in cities it’s all electric. That’s more economical. Though, you can drive it merely with electric power, too. There’s a Hybrid mode too, and you can save batteries for driving in the city. Also, the well-known driving modes. All in all, plenty to choose from! How is it to drive? It’s a bit firmer and heavier, at 1645 kg.You can feel that weight. Though it’s placed in the middle of the car. It’s not a dynamic car anyway. It’s not an electric GTI, mind! It’s rapid, but not sporty, as it’s heavier. So, less tax benefits in NL next year. Is it still interesting? If you use the electric driving capabilities to the max, yes. But it costs around 44000 euros, which is relatively affordable. Still, not cheap. + Quick; Still plenty of cargo space – Sold out in NL for 2015; Feels heavier .
