has confirmed the speculation
that they will indeed be displaying a diesel-hybrid Golf
at the Geneva Motor Show
next week. The Golf TDI Hybrid will in fact be a strong parallel hybrid
capable of running off either the diesel
engine, an electric motor or both. As expected, start-stop capability is part of the deal. Interestingly the drivetrain uses a 7-speed DSG dual clutch transmission rather than some type of CVT. The Golf TDI Hybrid will apparently achieve fuel consumption of 3.4L/100km or 69mpg (U.S.). VW
hasn't released any photos or other details of the Golf Hybrid yet so we'll just give you a shot of the Golf BlueMotion for now.
