2013 Vw Jetta Hybrid now available for order

Article by Christian Andrei, on December 10, 2012

Volkswagen has started to take advance orders for the new Jetta Hybrid in Germany. Volkswagen considers the saloon as one of its most successful model series. The Jetta is considered one of the top-selling models of all German automakers in the U.S. The new Jetta Hybrid is being launched as a model that depends on the potent combination of a TSI turbocharged petrol direct-injection engine (110 kW / 150 PS) and an electric motor (20 kW / 27 PS).

Driving performance is outstanding with the use of the turbo hybrid’s system power of 125 kW / 170 PS. Nevertheless, the new Jetta Hybrid has reached a low fuel consumption value of only 4.1 litres per 100 km with CO2 emissions of just 95 g/km.

The 210 km/h saloon could then consume around 20% lower fuel than a conventional vehicle with a similar size and power. In all-electric driving, the Jetta Hybrid can cover 2 km with only one press of a button. Furthermore, the hybrid system instantly shifts to the zero emissions electric mode when possible.

The driver is informed of the status of the system via an energy flow indicator. Power is transmitted to the front axle via a 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox. The Jetta Hybrid is available in two equipment versions: Comfortline and Highline.

The two models can be recognized by their distinct hybrid features. The Jetta Hybrid Comfortline has other distinguishing exterior elements: an independent radiator grille, LED tail lights and badges with blue backgrounds, special side sills, a rear roof spoiler, revised rear bumper and a set of Lexington 15-inch alloy wheels in hybrid-specific design. For the interior, the hybrid design is expressed in customized accents and decor strips as well as specially developed seat upholstery.

It has other standard features, including: the RCD 510 Radio-CD system with digital radio reception (DAB+) and energy flow indicator, multifunction display “Plus”, a leather-trimmed multifunction steering wheel, automatic climate control and the ParkPilot parking assistant.

The Jetta Hybrid Highline has more standard features such as the bi-xenon headlights with LED daytime running lights, fog lights, 17-inch alloy wheels (“Buenos Aires”), “Premium” multifunctional display and the winter package. The new Jetta Hybrid will start to be available in the middle of April 2013. Prices begin at 31,300 euros in Germany.
