Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid in Germany

Here we have some very good news for Volkswagen fans. As you all know, not long ago, the carmaker introduced the final production version of their new VW Jetta Hybrid at the 2012 Los Angeles International Auto Show. This is not all. The specialists have announced that they will start to take advance orders for the new sedan model in Germany. According to the manufacturer, the new Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid will be available in German VW showrooms starting with the middle of April next year. The starting price was established at EUR31.300. We might find this price a bit high in comparison with the ones asked in the US market for the same model. Here, North American customers can have it for a starting price of EUR19.900. This price includes destination charge, but not tax. This is all the information available on the price so far.

The new Volkswagen compact sedan Jetta Hybrid receives power from a 1.4-liter turbocharged gasoline engine capable of generating 147 horsepower and 250 Nm of torque. This means 150 PS and 184 lb. ft. of torque. From an electric motor it also receives another 20 kW or 27 horsepower. In the end, the combined output reaches 168 horsepower or 170 PS. To transfer all this output to the front wheels, the German engineers have provided a 7-speed dual clutch transmission offered as standard on all models.

In terms of fuel consumption, the carmaker declared a 4.1 liter per 100 km value and the CO2 emission level reaches 95 g/km. For the German customers, the manufacturer offers two equipment grades called Comfortline and Highline. As standard, these include 15-inch allow wheels in hybrid-specific design to transfer the output to the road, a leather-trimmed multifunction steering wheel, ParkPilot parking assistant, automatic climate control and a lot more.
