VW Golf electric
The next-generation VW Golf will go electric, both as hybrid and as full EV.

Speaking at the LA motor show, he said: “We’re looking at a hybrid version of a compact car for Europe and it will come on the next Golf, and an EV version.”

Hackenberg also admitted that diesel hybrid technology, previewed on the Up Lite concept, could be upscaled to bigger cars.

The Up Lite has a two-cylinder diesel engine, assisted by a 10kW electric motor, but Hackenberg revealed that a 30kW motor with a bigger engine was easily achieveable.
