Volkswagen, the German automaker, has unveiled the new C Coupé GTE four-door concept car at the ongoing 2015 Auto Shanghai. This car is over 5 meters in length and is built specifically for the Chinese market. Volkswagen C Coupé GTE has one of the world’s most advanced plug-in hybrid drive systems, whose drive sources combine to produce an impressive 500 Nm of system torque.

The progressive C Coupé GTE illustrates a new design approach for Volkswagen’s top future saloons. Its contemporary form is impressive from all angles: while its long bonnet conveys a confident appearance, from the side, the four-door C Coupé GTE shows elegant lines, low-profile side windows and horizontal character line that is formed by two lines. From the rear, this structure comes together distinctively, emphasising the vehicle’s width.

The plug-in hybrid drive system consists of a turbocharged petrol direct-injection engine (TSI) with four cylinders,an 8-speed automatic gearbox, an electric motor integrated in the gearbox module and a lithium-ion battery. The TSI engine produces 210 PS, while the electric motor has a power output of 124 PS. The hybrid drive develops a system power of 245 PS and an impressive system torque of 500 Nm. The battery integrated at the rear can be charged while driving or while parked. The C Coupé GTE can also be powered all-electrically up to a speed of 130 kmph; this mode enables driving with zero local emissions and a range of 50 kilometres.

The car’s combined fuel consumption (NEDC for plug-in hybrid vehicles) is 2.3 litres per 100 kilometres. The car’s total driving range is over 800 kilometres. Despite its excellent fuel efficiency, new Volkswagen C Coupé GTE also has sporty ambitions. This Volkswagen accelerates to 100kmph from standstill in mere 8.6 seconds and reaches a top speed of 232 kmph.
