396-HP Plug-In Hybrid "Bridges The Gap Between Road Cars And Racing Sport Cars"
Volkswagen debuts its Golf GTE Sport Concept at the annual Worthersee festival in Austria. It "bridges the gap between road cars and racing sport cars" with striking design and a 396-horsepower plug-in hybrid powertrain.
Attendees at the annual Wörthersee festival in Austria are getting a preview of an upcoming, hotter version of the GTI called the Clubsport. It packs 261 horsepower, an overboost function, and a more aggressive exterior bodykit.
Volkswagen has prepared an array of police and emergency vehicles to showcase at the RETTmobil show in Germany, including first-responder versions of the Golf, Passat, Tiguan, Touareg, Amarok, Transporter and Crafter.
The latest reports indicate that Ferdinand Piech's sudden departure as chairman of the Volkswagen Group supervisory board came after a failed attempt to supplant CEO Martin Winterkorn. But the bigger question now is who will take his place.
