Hybrid Touareg The hybrid that with uncompromising power and efficiency combined
The Touareg Hybrid offers such uncompromising power with efficiency you will be impressed for a hybrid to perform so well.
This is thanks to Volkswagen’s latest “parallel hybrid” technology where the petrol engine, electric motor, clutch and automatic transmission all work together.
From 0-31mph only the electric motor is used (LOW LOAD SITUATIONS, HIGH VOLTAGE (HV) BATTERY SUFFICIEBTLY CHARGED), with the petrol engine decoupled it consumes no energy and creates no emissions.
When the driver brakes, the energy normally lost during the braking phase is converted into electric energy and stored in the HV battery.
During rapid “kick down” acceleration, the electric motor works together with the petrol engine to provide all the power you need whilst reducing emission’s compared to a normal petrol engine car.
The Touareg selects the most efficient drive at all times, from on-road performance, climbing ability, towing to off-road capability.
