Volkswagen Scirocco at Geneva

Feb 29, 2008

Volkswagen will be introducing seven international premiere models in Geneva scheduled. The main spotlight will be on the completely re-engineered Scirocco, an all-round sports car, as the highlight of the show. Another vehicle being showcased at Lac Lman is the Golf TDI Hybrid. This concept car runs on just .898 gallons of diesel per 62 miles.

The first-generation Scirocco was initially presented to the public 34 years ago. That was in Geneva too. Now Volkswagen is celebrating the comeback of its legendary two-door automobile. Thanks to an elongated roof, the vehicle offers room for four adults, making it a sports car that can be used on any day of the year. The Scirocco is driven by a selection of four high-torque, low-consumption TDI and TSI engines of between 120hp and 197hp. This new sports car will come with a choice of numerous innovative technologies, such as an adaptive chassis control.With its Golf TDI Hybrid, Volkswagen demonstrates the kind of potential inherent in the combination of high-tech diesel engine, electric motor and 7-speed DSG technology. Exhibited for the first time at the Geneva Motor Show, the concept car consumes no more than .898 gallons of diesel fuel per 62 miles. This powerful full-hybrid Golf TDI Hybrid can be operated either in internal-combustion mode only or in a combination mode of powerful yet thrifty TDI and electric motor. The car is also designed to run on emissions-free electric power only. Power transmission to the front axle is managed by 7-speed DSG technology. In city traffic, the vehicle's automatic stop-start system will even automatically switch off diesel operations.
