Sport Coupe Concept GTE by Volkswagen has debuted at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. This four-door and high-tech coupe is based on the platform Modular Transverse Matrix. The front fascia gets a brand new look as the radiator grille, the headlights and the badge appear to be merging together. The sloping roofline is another prominent feature. Another new aspect of the front face is the hood that has been elongated. The dual exhaust tips can be seen on the rear bumper. The car’s length is 4869mm, while its width is 1864mm. It stands at a height of 1407mm. The car makers have significantly shortened the overhangs. At the front, they are 909mm and 1120mm in the rear.
The car comes with a cargo capacity amounting to 480 liters. The cabin is ergonomic and minimalistic as well. It features panoramic sliding sunroof. The headroom is sufficient in the front and the rear as well. As for the legroom, the 3020mm wheelbase ensues that the legroom too is enough. The knobs and conventional buttons are few in number. This is because Volkswagen has replaced several physical keys with the buttons that are touch sensitive and also the touchscreen display.
The car comes with 21-inch five-spoke alloy wheels. Under the hood is present the plug-in hybrid technology. The TSI V6 is accompanied by two electric motors. The combined output turns out to be 279 kW (380 HP). The car can run from a standstill to 100 km/hr in a matter of 5.2 seconds. Also, the top speed is limited to 250 km/h (155 mph). The car can cover 50 km on electric power alone. In the hybrid mode, it consumes 2 liters per 100 km. The fuel efficiency is 141.2 mpg for UK and 117.6 mpg for US. The overall range is about 620 miles (1,000 km).
