Find your hybrid

Volkswagens you know and love, now as plug-in hybrids

Electrifying our drives is an important step along the path toward CO2-neutral mobility for everyone. A plug-in hybrid enables purely electric driving over some distances thanks to the combination of the electric and petrol engine. For you, this means:

  • Greater performance, driving comfort and more fun when driving off thanks to electric assistance
  • Practical electric ranges for day-to-day use
  • Brake energy recuperation extends electric range between charges

Good reasons to choose a  plug-in hybrid


More power with more driving pleasure

A hybrid combines the best of both worlds. The Touareg R eHybrid is an uniquely dynamic opportunity when it combines the performance of both systems to deliver maximum system performance of 340 kW (462 bhp). This alone creates a breath-taking experience of power when driving off. In other words: twice the driving pleasure with electric boost.


A hybrid takes you further

A plug-in hybrid gives you confidence on longer journeys. With daily charging, you can drive average day-to-day distances purely electrically. Over long distances, the automatic adaptation of the drive systems optimises the range and efficiency.

Together for more sustainability

Electric mobility is a great leap forward on the path toward creating a smaller CO2 footprint. Through the efficient use of renewable energy, for example, and by reducing CO2 emissions on the road. That is why we offer innovative plug-in hybrids for the switch to electric mobility. These models enable CO2-free local driving in electric mode for the average day-to-day needs. Proving that everyone can make a contribution in their own way. 


Intelligent charging concept, more flexibility 

Start the day the fully electric way: with sport before work and then home for dinner without stopping to refuel. No problem with a plug-in hybrid. You can recharge its lithium-ion battery from the comfort of home using either a wall box charger or even a conventional electrical socket. This provides you with greater day-to-day flexibility.

Volkswagen hybrid model comparison

Whether a sporty SUV or a flexible estate – with the Volkswagen hybrid range you will find the perfect model for your precise needs. See below the range of our hybrid drives.

Sportiness and efficiency in one

With its fusion of electric motor and TSI, it puts 150 kW (204 bhp) on the road.

Sustainable power

The Golf 8 is Volkswagen’s first model to feature the e-TSI engine with mild-hybrid technology. e-TSI uses a lithium-ion battery to help power the engine at low speeds and drastically reduce both fuel consumption and emissions. The battery is recharged using energy from braking and coasting.
