Strong performance, efficient consumption: the Passat GTE engines.

All the benefits of a Plug-In Hybrid drive system come together in the Passat GTE6: both the Saloon and Estate models are powered by a highly innovative, 85 kW electric engine and a 1.4 TSI 115 kW (156 hp) petrol engine with turbo-charged direct injection. The purely electric drive system lets you drive locally emissions-free in urban areas and on expressways at up to 130 km/h for a range of 50 km. In the hybrid and GTE modes, higher speeds are no problem.

Two engines, one fascination 

The hybrid drive enables the Passat GTE6 to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 7.5 seconds. You can drive the Passat GTE for weeks on electric power alone. If you want more speed, use the boost button to combine the force of both engines and squeeze every last bit of performance out of the car. The drive profile switches to “sport” and the steering and suspension adapt progressively.


Reliable and long-lasting: 
The Passat GTE battery

Loss of battery capacity? Not with the Passat GTE’s6 extremely long-lasting high voltage battery. Volkswagen offers an eight-year warranty or 160,000 km warranty – whichever comes first.

An empty battery will be fully recharged in 4 hours and 15 minutes. Alternatively, you can cut the charge time to 2 hours and 30 minutes with the optional Wallbox.


Economical and highly efficient 

The Passat GTE6 scores an impressively low fuel economy through the combination of an efficient combustion engine and an emissions-free electric drive. The advanced Plug-In Hybrid guarantees a sporty and dynamic driving experience and a clear conscience. Over 100 km, the Passat GTE consumes just 1.6 liters of petrol and 12.2 kWh of electricity (NEDC). Per kilometer, it emits just 37 grams of CO2.
