VW Golf Hybrid concept
Its about time. Seems like everyone is chasing Toyota. The new Prius next month will be their 3rd generation of a production hybrid.
And a giant car maker like VW can only announce a production version of this for the 2012 model year.
It uses a small 1.2 Liter diesel with an electric motor. And it is a plug in.
It is supposed to be able to run on electric alone for about 35 miles. And top speed (electric alone) could be about 75MPH.
It will still be 2 years behind GM and Toyota.
