With the hybrid model, a 3.0 liter supercharged, direct injection V6 gasoline engine is paired with an electric motor that reduces fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by about 40% An eight-speed automatic transmission keeps power always available while helping the Touareg Hybrid achieve approximately 25 and 21 mpg during highway and city driving. A special clutch can disengage the transmission from the engine when the engine is not powering the car, allowing it to coast and aid in fuel savings. The electric motor can also recover kinetic energy during braking to help recharge the nickel metal-hydride battery pack. With the V6 engine and electric motor combined, a total of 375hp and 428 lb-ft. of torque are available, allowing for full towing capacity of up to 7700 pounds.
