With the recent negative publicity surrounding diesel there's been a huge shift towards the most fuel efficient petrol versions (and in particular towards hybrids like this) and according to the British motoring press the Passat GTE is one of the best available. Combining a 1.4 TSI turbo petrol engine with a 113 bhp electric motor as in the Golf GTE and A3 E-Tron produces a combined output of 215bhp when both the petrol and electric motors are running in tandem. This is good for a 0-60 time of 7.4 seconds and a top speed of over 140 mph. As the GTE is a plug-in hybrid, you can recharge at home in around 4 hours which will give the car an electric only range of around 30 miles if the weather is warm (less if it's freezing outside as batteries don't do so well in the cold). This means if your typical journeys revolve around short trips around town with the occasional longer motorway journey then this car's perfect for you - you could save a fortune in fuel.
