Volkswagen Golf GTE Sport concept with gullwing doors and carbon body revealed

Volkswagen has unveiled the Golf GTE Sport concept at the annual Wörthersee show in Austria.

The new Golf GTE Sport concept has very little in common with the production Golf GTE plug-in hybrid, featuring an aggressive White Club body made from carbon fibre, gullwing doors, new longer doors and huge alloy wheels.

The interior is very unique showing a massive centre console, bucket seats with five-point belts, steering column made from carbon fibre with shift paddles. Standard dials are replaced with new transparent displays.

The plug-in hybrid drivetrain combines a front-mounted 295bhp 1.6-litre TSI engine with 295 lb-ft of torque and two electric motors, one at the front integrated in the 6-speed DCT producing 113bhp & 330 Nm, while the second on the back delivers 113bhp & 270 Nm of torque.

Combined power output is 395bhp and 670Nm of torque.

When all three engines work together, the Golf GTE Sport concept goes from 0-62 mph in 4.3 seconds on its way to a top speed of 174 mph. Average fuel economy is an impressive 141.2 mpg. Not bad for a car that packs close to 400bhp.

When in purely electric mode, the concept has a range of up to 31 miles from a lithium-ion battery.
