Volkswagen unveils a new hot hatch that also happens to be quite eco-friendly, the Golf GTE plug-in hybrid. The latest version of the iconic hatchback combines a 1.4L 148 hp turbocharged TSI engine with a 101 hp electric motor that gets the GTE from 0-60 in 7.6 seconds and can hit a top speed of 135 mph. It also puts out an impressive 258 lb-ft of torque and even with all that power the car still can deliver a combined fuel economy of 157 mpg. That breaks down into a 31 mile range on electricity alone and an estimated total driving range of 584 miles.
