Volkswagen Golf GTE Reviews (Videos)

July 7th, 2015 by
 

The Volkswagen Golf GTE (a sporty plug-in hybrid electric car) is one of the more popular cars on the European electric car market these days. In fact, it was the top-selling electric car in the Netherlands in June, and if counted as an individual model (not grouped with other Golfs), it would have been #13 on the Dutch market. In Europe as a whole, it was the 6th best-selling electric car in May (June numbers are not tallied yet).

But yeah, what’s it like to drive the Volkswagen Golf GTE? A few reviews are below. The first two are from the same guy, British actor, comedian, and writer Robert Llewellyn of Fully Charged. The third one is a short one from a Dutch guy I met while doing a cleantech tour there last month. Both of these guys love the car, but you can hear more in their own words in the three videos below.

Note that the first part of this last video focuses on EV charging in Amsterdam, Holland (skip to about 1:05 for a brief moment and then to 2:15 if you just want to see the short review):

It looks like a great car. If you are on the market for a plug-in hybrid electric car, this definitely seems like one worth considering. Go take a test drive and see how it compares to other great plug-in hybrids on the market!
