Jetta Hybrid 2013

Volkswagen has unveiled the 2013 Jetta Hybrid at the 2012 . VW claims that the hybrid car manages a class-leading 0-100km/h in under 9 seconds and also delivers an estimated combined fuel economy figure of 15.5km/l.

The car uses the lightweight 1.4-liter turbocharged power plant that produces 150bhp and 250Nm of torque delivered from just 1400rpm up to 3500rpm. The electric motor is rated at 20 kW. As in the Touareg Hybrid SUV, the Jetta Hybrid features a clutch that decouples the petrol engine from the drivetrain when in pure electric drive or coasting modes.

A 220-volt, 1.1 kWh battery lithium-ion battery supplies the energy to the electric motor and is integrated behind the rear bench seat and weighs less than 40 kilograms.

According to Volkswagen, the dual-clutch transmission (DSG) that sends power to the front wheel is significantly lighter than conventional auto-boxes and helps in achieving reducing the overall weight of the car and helps in achieving a greater fuel economy.
