Volkswagen Sport Coupé Concept GTE Concept Car announced for Geneva Motor Show

The Volkswagen Sport Coupé Concept GTE is a world premiere at Geneva International Motor Show 2015. The high-tech concept car provides a view of the new Volkswagen design language and is positioned above today's Volkswagen CC. 

Dr Heinz-Jakob Neusser, Volkswagen Brand Board Member for Development says about the Sport Coupé Concept GTE "This concept car is a breathtakingly dynamic coupé, destined to set standards in this class. Thanks to the design in the style of an exclusive sports car combined with the added functionality of a large boot lid, we see an impressive alternative to the classic saloons of the B and C segments in this four-seater."

More than ever before, the radiator grille, the headlights and VW badge merge to form a completely new interpretation of the front end in the new Sport Coupé Concept GTE. The roofline assumes the shape of a flattened curve extending from the A-pillar that is set far back into the rear body. Dominating the rear part of the silhouette is the low-set C-pillar, which develops seamlessly from the roofline. The progressive overall impression of the high-tech concept car is rounded off by 21-inch five-spoke wheels and integrated air exhaust openings in the front wings, doors and bonnet.

The Sport Coupé Concept GTE features a clear design and new interactive interfaces between human and machine in the interior creating an avant-garde atmosphere inside the coupé.

Thanks to a V6 TSI engine, the 279 kW / 380 PS GTE plug-in hybrid delivers the long-distance properties of a Grand Tourismo while enabling zero-emission driving. The VW concept car, with a top speed of 250 km/h, has an average combined fuel consumption of 2.0 l/100km.

The Geneva Motor Show 2015 will take place March 5 to March 15.
