VW Tiguan now also available as a plug-in hybrid with 50 electric kilometers-kilometers

Volkswagen is currently launching numerous new electric and hybrid models. As part of this product offensive, the bestselling Tiguan can now also be ordered electrified. On board the new Tiguan eHybrid, an electric motor ensures that most daily distances can be covered with zero local emissions. The purely electric range is up to 50 km in the WLTP cycle. The Tiguan eHybrid can now be configured and ordered. The price in Germany starts at 42.413.11 euros.

In “Hybrid” mode, the electric motor supports the 1.4-liter TSI and acts like an additional booster. Temporarily, the Tiguan eHybrid is always purely electric and therefore locally emission-free in “Hybrid” mode, since the battery is recharged when the SUV decelerates through so-called recuperation. In this way, even over long distances, sufficient electrical energy is available to switch off the combustion engine depending on the situation or to support it with additional drive power. A “GTE mode” can be activated manually in the Tiguan eHybrid – the electric motor and the TSI form a particularly dynamic alliance, as VW emphasizes: Both motors together develop a maximum system torque of 400 Newton meters.

The plug-in hybrid drive develops a system output of 180 kW (245 hp) and is programmed in such a way that the Tiguan eHybrid can start in “E-Mode”, provided the battery is sufficiently charged and its temperature is above -10°C. The Tiguan eHybrid can cover up to 50 kilometers in electric mode – enough for almost all distances in everyday life. Assuming consistent charging, the Tiguan eHybrid could also be used as a purely electric car for the majority of journeys throughout the year. And that’s very simple: because the battery, which is located in the floor in front of the rear axle, is charged exclusively with alternating current. With the help of a plug-in charger at the conventional household socket with max. 2.3 kW or at a charging station or. Wall box with up to 3.6 kW.

Tiguan eHybrid as “Life”, “Elegance” and “R-Line”

The Tiguan eHybrid can be ordered in three configurations: “Life”, “Elegance” and “R-Line”. The “Life” version already has the outlined basic price of 42.413.11 euros include the following features as standard on board: the “Digital Cockpit” (digital instruments with specific electronic displays), the “Air Care Climatronic” (three-zone automatic air conditioning) including a new and digitized control unit, a multifunction steering wheel in Leather with shift paddles for the 6-speed dual clutch gearbox DSG, “ACC” (automatic distance control), “Front Assist” (emergency brake assistant), a parking aid (front and rear), 17-inch alloy wheels and roof rails. All Tiguans are also basically equipped with details such as “Lane Assist” (lane departure warning system), a telephone interface, a rain sensor and LED headlights.

Innovative drives for fewer CO2 emissions: Volkswagen is committed to the Paris climate agreement – with the aim of becoming a company with a CO2-neutral balance sheet by 2050. Volkswagen started its electric mobility offensive on this “Way to Zero”. New electric and hybrid models are making their debut in many series with a high frequency.

  1. Unfortunately, innovation is no longer enough. It’s the last grace period for the combustion engine industry. If you don’t own huge amounts of nickel, have your own cell, hardware and software production of the highest quality, in short, can develop and build vehicles yourself, you’re out.

  2. This will be THE company car for 2021, my dear colleagues are already in the starting blocks. And no one will charge it, because 3.6 KW is a joke with a battery of at least 13 kWh, because smaller will not be possible with this thick ship to reach the theoretical 50 km. There is another way…and above all better…but that doesn’t interest a company car driver.
