Volkswagen C Coupe GTE unveiled in Shanghai

Volkswagen C Coupe GTE unveiled in Shanghai

Volkswagen has unveiled the C Coupe GTE concept at the Auto Shanghai 2015 in China. Based on Volkswagen Group’s Modular Longitudinal Matrix (MLB) platform, the C Coupe GTE concept gives us a glimpse of the future of Volkswagen’s large sedans.

Measuring more than five metres in length and riding on massive 22-inch wheels, the C Coupe GTE concept gets an elegantly long bonnet and a low-profile roof. Other striking details include multi-spoke alloy wheels, dual LED headlamps, an illuminated VW logo and a distinctive front grille with five chrome slats. The interior seems heavily inspired by the current Passat, though a fully digital instrument cluster and a large touch screen display in the centre console have reduced the clutter. Dual displays mounted behind the front seats display important information for the rear seat passengers.

Powering the C Coupe GTE is a hybrid powertrain made up of a four-cylinder turbocharged TSI engine working in conjunction with an electric motor. The powertrain comes mated to an eight-speed transmission and has a total output of 240bhp and 500Nm of torque. In its pure electric mode, the C Coupe GTE concept can transverse almost 50 kilometres, and the overall efficiency is claimed to be around 43.5kmpl.

The C Coupe GTE concept has been developed with focus on the Chinese market and will eventually inspire a sedan which will fill in the void between the Passat and the Phaeton.
