VAG SSP 550. You will find more information on and descriptions of the technology in the Passat GTE over the next pages of this Self-study Programme. The Passat GTE – with plug-in hybrid drive for saloon and estate models. 

For the first time, the Passat drive system is made up of the following innovative components: TSI engine, electric drive, dual clutch gearbox and high-voltage battery.

Together, the 1.4-l TSI engine and the electric drive deliver a system output of 160 kW and produce a maximum torque of 400 Nm.

By pressing the button for electric drive (E-MODE), you can select an all-electric driving mode. The sports program button (GTE mode) activates a mode that engages the TSI engine.

The electric range is up to 50 kilometres. Combined with the TSI engine, the car has a range of up to 1,114 kilometres when the 50-litre fuel tank is full and the high-voltage battery is fully charged.

The maximum speed is 130 km/h when the car is driven with the electric drive.
