Volkswagen Sport Coupe Concept GTE previews a new progressive design language

Volkswagen Sport Coupe Concept GTE is a high-tech show car providing a view of the new progressive design language and is positioned above today’s Volkswagen CC.

Dr Heinz-Jakob Neusser, Volkswagen Brand Board Member for Development, explained the new Coupé Concept GTE for the Volkswagen brand: “This concept car is a breathtakingly dynamic coupé, destined to set standards in this class. Thanks to the design in the style of an exclusive sports car combined with the added functionality of a large boot lid, we see an impressive alternative to the classic saloons of the B and C segments in this four-seater.”

The overall look is more upscale than any other production Volkswagen, featuring a sleek design with a very unique take on the front where the radiator grille, the headlights and VW badge merge to form a completely new interpretation of the front end.

There is also a long bonnet, sloping roofline, panoramic sliding sunroof and dual exhaust tip incorporated into the rear bumper.

The Sport Coupe Concept GTE measures 4869mm in length, 1864mm in width and 1407mm in height, while the overhangs stand at 909mm front & 1120mm rear and the wheelbase is 3020mm.

The trunk is 480 liters while the interior is very minimalistic showing very few buttons and knobs as most of the functions are replaced with a large touchscreen display as well as by touch-sensitive buttons.

Power comes from a plug-in hybrid drivetrain combining a V6 TSI engine and two electric motors for a combined power output of 380 horsepower, enabling the concept to accelerate from 0-62mph in 5.2 seconds on to a top speed of 155mph. Range in purely EV mode is up to 31 miles and the average fuel economy is an impressive 141.2mpg.
