Volkswagen C Coupe GTE Review and Specification
Volkswagen C Coupe GTE. The star of the Shanghai Motor Show in China could remain reserved. However, the design and technology of this imposing inspire the next Volkswagen Phaeton for it in an international career.
Large chrome grille, frilly look highlighted by a diode garland, giant wheels in 22 inch size, color “Golden Atmosphere” long, 5.07 m, this Volkswagen displays a pace few “popular”, despite its name and place of presentation at the show in Shanghai. Many concessions to the taste of Chinese motorists who like opulence and prestige. This study named C Coupe GTE however not directly precedes the future Phaeton, like its MSDS might suggest. It should become model series in 2016 already (so that the next Phaeton will have to wait until 2017) and is inserted between the local versions of the Passat and the flagship.
C Coupe GTE Powertrain Review. Technically, the study is rather close to major Audi. It is based on the MLB platform and therefore the engine installed in the longitudinal position under the hood. Like the Audi A6 long wheelbase, also reserved for the Middle Kingdom, the concept has the right to a hybrid drive with a lithium-ion rechargeable battery AC power. In this case, a four-cylinder turbocharged petrol 210 hp is supported by a strong electric block 124 hp, integrated with the eight-speed automatic transmission. Rather reasonable system power is limited to 245 hp, but the 500 Nm torque provide cumulative dynamism that is well suited to this great traction. That can travel up to 50 km in all-electric mode, the Volkswagen is well suited to urban transport, displaying a range worthy of a classic car. In normed cycle, very advantageous for plug-in hybrid, it displays a theoretical consumption of only 2.3 liters of unleaded per 100 km.
