VW Hybrid Golf Coupe

The German's these days are getting increasingly aggressive. It used to be just Hitler, but now its the Volkswagen group. They've become so dominant that mentioning a car under their name is inevitable. Volkswagen have led the way in build quality, their innovative and extremely efficient DSG gearbox which is currently unparalleled in the mass-car market and even in their advertising for crying out loud. Most notably however, the car that has stood the test of time is undoubtedly the Golf. And now, there's a new variant. The Hybrid Golf Coupe.

Recently unraveled at the Detriot Motor Show last week, the Hybrid Golf Coupe will be the wedge between the Scirocco and the Passat CC. It will be equipped with a 147bhp engine with a 25hp electric motor and comes with the DSG seven speed gearbox which enables the Golf Coupe to do 0-100km/h in 8.1 seconds. And that is impressive from a car that dons one of those 'hybrid' badges. The best part though, is that the Golf Coupe comes with a special clutch which separates the engine from the drivetrain to reduce drag and this comes into play when you lift off while traveling at high speeds, the car will glide smoothly rather than be bogged down by the engine. This results in a very tree-hugging 20km/litre and carbon emissions of 98g/km which is astonishing! For those who cannot stand the idea of a hybrid, don't despair. Petrol and Diesel engines are on the way too..

This looks much more exciting than the current Golf and is it just me or are there huge hints of the Audi A4's tail lamps at the rear? That's no matter really, because the Golf Coupe looks fantastic with those front headlights, certainly hope those go into the production model. Even the old school open front grille has been closed up to reduce drag. These German's are so obsessive about making a green car yet their minimalist and simplistic designs still please the eyes.. This car will definitely be worth the wait.
