VW Golf, VW Jetta: Hybrid in the works for 2013

VW Golf, VW Jetta

VW is working on a hybrid version of the VW Golf and VW Jetta for 2013.

Ulrich Hackenberg, VW’s R and D chief, says the 2013 models could be offered with a choice of battery size, and therefore of zero-emission range, to suit different customer needs. The bigger-batteried versions would also be more economical, but cost more to buy.

Hackenberg says a final decision has yet to be made, but the question of offering a battery choice is currently under consideration. He also revealed that the plug-in Jetta will have a greater electric-only range than the Golf because it has a larger trunk.
