Our hybrid drives: as diverse as the demands of day-to-day life

With a plug-in hybrid or mild hybrid: electrifying our drives is an important step along the path toward CO2-neutral mobility for everyone. While a plug-in hybrid also enables purely electric driving over some distances thanks to the combination of the electric motor and petrol engine, the mild hybrid optimises the efficiency of the petrol engine with a 48V system. For you, this means:

  • Greater performance, driving comfort and more fun when driving off thanks to electric assistance
  • Practical electric ranges with our eHybrids for day-to-day use
  • Brake energy recuperation and driving with the TSI switched off thanks to the coasting function with our mild hybrid engines.

Good reasons to choose a 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.

Innovative hybrid drives as varied as life itself

Practical experience beats pure configuration

Helena commutes between Milton Keynes and Northampton. She wants this journey to be more relaxed but above all, more cost effective. That is why she wants to switch to a plug-in hybrid. It is important that she has enough electric range for the drive to work, where she can recharge the battery. However, it is just as important that she has enough space for her dog, Paul. Now she is looking forward to comparing the models. Not just on her couch but also live during a test drive.

A friend of the family

Simone lives with her family in a rural suburb near Düsseldorf. To make driving the children to their grandparents near Cologne more efficient, the family has switched to a Tiguan eHybrid and uses Volkswagen green electricity. They can not only drive up to 50 km using pure electric power but also CO2-free locally. Plus, the Tiguan provides plenty of space for both toys and happy passengers on the back seat thanks to the GTE mode. During the long drives on vacation, Simone can always rely on her TSI petrol engine.

Clean throughout Berlin

Mika lives in Berlin. He loves innovative technology and also values a sporty and sustainable lifestyle. Reliability and efficiency are also highly important to him. That is why he chose a Golf GTE. With its powerful hybrid drive, the journey to work is not only more economical but also more fun. Because it combines the almost silent and locally CO2-free electric motor with a 1.4 l TSI direct petrol injection engine for twice the power with low fuel consumption.
