VW Beetle: Next-generation available as hybrid

VW Beetle

VW will offer a hybrid version of the next-generation VW Beetle.

The redesign will include a hybrid Beetle with a drivetrain resembling what was seen on the New Compact Coupe concept at this year’s Detroit show–a lithium-ion battery pack, 20 kilowatt electric motor with a li-ion battery pack, 177 horsepower, 110 pound-feet of torque, and an average of 45 miles per gallon. The hybrid Beetle may not match those numbers exactly, but chances are it will come close.
