VW GOLF GTE

Daily Express - - TOTAL EV -

PRICE: From £28,135 As a sign of how ubiq­ui­tous hy­brid pow­er­trains are be­com­ing, look no fur­ther than the VW Golf GTE.

What’s great about the plug-in hy­brid ver­sion of the pop­u­lar hatch­back is that it doesn’t shout about its green cre­den­tials.

The av­er­age mo­torist won’t no­tice the dif­fer­ence – though pedes­tri­ans might won­der why you’re cruis­ing by silently, thanks to 31 miles of elec­tric-only range. In­side there’s the same ex­cel­lent build qual­ity we’ve come to ex­pect from VW and at un­der £30,000 it’s a vi­able al­ter­na­tive to a diesel or petrol model.
