Volkswagen has opened its order books for a fleet-friendly addition to its Golf plug-in hybrid line-up with the unveiling in the UK of the new Golf eHybrid Style model., Volkswagen expects the Golf eHybrid, priced from £32,995, to expand significantly the appeal of the brand’s plug-in hybrid offerings.
The Volkswagen Golf GTD is now available to UK customers, priced from £32,790. It follows the GTI and GTE models, which were also recently opened for order to British buyers. The diesel-powered newcomer is the most powerful Golf GTD to date. Volkswagen says it offers the benefits of both high-performance and long range, with up to 600 miles available from a single tank of fuel, a top speed of 152 mph and a 0-62 mph sprint time of 7.1 seconds allied to strong in-gear acceleration.
The Volkswagen Golf has returned, now in its eighth generation, with UK customers able to order the new model from 6 February. Prices for diesel models start at £24,875 with the Golf Life 2.0 TdI 115 PS (113 bhp) 6-speed manual. Volkswagen is describing the Golf 8 and the most connected car it has produced to date.
A new chapter in the history of Volkswagen’s best-selling car has started with the world premiere of the eighth Golf, which the company describes as “digitalised, connected, and intuitive to operate”. Hybrid versions will be launched at the same time. Speeds of up to 210 km/h (130 mph) are possible with assisted driving.
On 24 October, the Volkswagen brand will present the eighth generation Golf at a world premiere in Wolfsburg: featuring more digitalisation and connectivity than before, and “packed with innovations and sporting a highly expressive design”.
