2015 Volkswagen Sport Coupe GTE Concept

Not only is the car’s design innovative, its technology is as well. The GTE designation promises revolutionary drive system technology. Ever since the Golf GTE made its debut, these three letters have been used at Volkswagen to designate a car with a plug-in hybrid drive. The Passat GTE follows this year. These cars can be driven approximately 50 kilometres in an all-electric mode; and yet they can cover very long distances with confidence. This all happens with maximum dynamics; the vehicles are silent gliders, powerful cruisers. The 279 kW / 380 PS GTE fastback delivers the long-distance properties of a Gran Turismo while simultaneously enabling zero-emission driving – thanks to its two electric motors and externally chargeable battery. The concept car, with a top speed of 250 km/h, has an average combined fuel consumption of 2.0l/100 km.

The engineering basis for the charismatic design of the Sport Coupé GTE Concept is once again provided by the modular transverse matrix (MQB) from Volkswagen. It makes it possible to implement fascinating proportions and ideal package dimensions. The most important of all of these dimensions is the ratio of the exterior length to the wheelbase. The concept car is 4,870 mm long, while the wheelbase measures a phenomenal 2,841 mm. This creates a very comfortable interior length of 1,871 mm and extremely concise body overhangs.
