This all new four seated concept GTE excites with its lean, mean aggressive design and looks quite close to a sports car. It derives its underpinnings from VW’s MQB platform and is powered by a V6 TSI and two electric motors. The system develops a cumulative power of 374.8 bhp, but a combined fuel consumption of mere 2 litres per 100 kilometer.

Design

Front side of this Coupé is marked by the presence of a singular unit that incorporates radiator grille, headlights and VW badge with such attitude that other cars might just want to be like it. Besides, there is a long bonnet with elegant lines running towards the windscreen that meets the raked A-pillar from which the roofline extends towards the rear taking a smooth curve. Despite being made with a low roofline, this concept is said to have good headroom for four passengers and a generous boot space of 480-litres.
