OE15 WKK
VW Golf GTE
Branded as an Eco-Interceptor

Launched in 2015, the VW Golf GTE is a petrol-electric hybrid that combines the performance of a GTI with the eco-credentials of an electric car. A 1.4 litre petrol engine is coupled with a 100 kw electric motor thought a 6-speed automatic gearbox. At low speed, the electric motor does the work and at higher speeds the petrol engine is best. When heavy acceleration is needed, both work together to produce around 200 bhp. The car car be charged from the mains or from the petrol engine with regenerative braking.

This car is a demonstrator from VW and was passed to various forces around the country for evaluation including Northamptonshire Police and City of London police.

The blue stripe across the front of the car and into the headlight cluster is a standard design feature and is not just specially added to this police car.
