Volkswagen has launched the new Tiguan eHybrid. With an electric range of up to 50km, it allows most everyday trips to be covered without generating any local emissions.

In Hybrid mode, the electric motor supports the 1.4-litre turbocharged inline-four engine and acts like an additional booster. In this mode, the Tiguan eHybrid will temporarily also cover stretches fully electrically and thus without generating any local emissions, as so-called recuperation during braking recharges the battery.

The Tiguan eHybrid is part of Volkswagen's 'Way to Zero' initiative, where Volkswagen is pledging to become a carbon neutral company by 2050
Consequently, there is enough electrical energy on long journeys to switch off the combustion engine depending on the situation, or support it with additional drive output. There is also GTE mode, where the electric motor and TSI engine join forces, generating particularly dynamic results. In this mode, both drive units together generate a maximum system output of 242bhp and 400Nm of torque.
