Volkswagen has introduced a new plug-in hybrid version for the Golf, known as the eHybrid.
It sits beneath the existing GTE plug-in hybrid with a lower power output and lower pricing.
The eHybrid comes exclusively in Style trim, priced from £32,995. It has CO2 emissions of 22g/km and a 44-mile zero-emission range, which places it in the 7% benefit-in-kind tax bracket.
Despite being less powerful than the GTE, the eHybrid still delivers a respectable 204PS and can accelerate from 0-62 mph in 7.4 seconds.
The Golf eHybrid Style is equipped with 16-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, digital instruments, satnav, wireless phone charging, adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist and keyless entry.
Drivers can choose from two operating modes: E-Mode, which runs exclusively on battery power, or Hybrid, which uses a combination of petrol and electric. There is also a function that enable the battery charge to be retained for later use, such as when driving into a city.
Charging the battery takes around five hours from a three-pin plug, or less than four hours when using a wallbox. The maximum charging speed is 3.6kW.
The Golf eHybrid is available to order now.
