VW Golf TwinDrive: The people’s plug-in

VW Golf TwinDrive
Interesting driving report here with the VW Golf TwinDrive, VW’s plug-in electric hybrid.

VW’s primary efficiency push in the U.S. has been with diesel power, but over in Germany the company has launched a test fleet of TwinDrive plug-in electric hybrid Golfs, and I just had a chance to sample one not far from the Wolfsburg headquarters. Not surprisingly (except from an expected cost point of view) the range-extending internal-combustion engine in the TwinDrive I tested was a 1.5-liter diesel (a 1.4-liter TSI turbocharged direct-injection gas engine is also engineered for the system).
