2. VW Golf GTE Electric Hybrid Car
Golf GTE, a plug-in hybrid with an over 500 mile range. It has 3 main modes which excite us. A full GTE mode gives over 200 BHP by combining the 1.4 petrol and electric motor at the same time meaning it is impressively fast. It can also be driven in all electric mode for over 30 miles on a single charge.
The new Golf GTE is a great alternative to the excellent GTi and GTD
