Volkswagen Sport Coupe Concept GTE

Volkswagen Sport Coupe Concept GTE




The Volkswagen Sport Coupe Concept GTE from the 2015 Geneva Motor Show was a concept car designed to show off the latest, sharpest design language from Volkswagen. It also provides a preview of a future production model.

Based on the company's modular transverse matrix (MQB) chassis, the concept has a very long wheelbase for its size. This, combined with the short front and rear overhangs and 21-inch wheels, gives the car an imposing stance, while also allowing for plenty of interior space.

Volkswagen have designed the Sport Coupe Concept GTE to slot in above the Passat CC and below the Phaeton in their lineup.

The Volkswagen Sport Coupe Concept GTE is a four door coupe with a practical hatchback rear door. The low, sweeping roofline is designed to give the car a sporty yet elegant character, while the panoramic glass roof helps keep the cabin light and bright.

At the front, the concept features a newly redesigned VW face, which Volkswagen say has an emphasis on "three-dimensionality". Because as we all know, 2D is so last year.

Towards its outer edges, the radiator grille borders the LED dual headlights that are framed by an aluminum radiator grille crosspiece, whose ends take an upward turn, like the winglets of a modern jet aircraft.

The interior of the Volkswagen Sport Coupe Concept GTE features a plain, minimalist design, but its outward simplicity hides the fact VW have stuffed it full of as much of its latest tech as possible.

The instrument cluster is a prototype of a newly conceptualized Active Info Display with 3D graphics. The display has a 12.3-inch diagonal and was designed in such a way that the virtual space blends into the real border of the instrument cluster, via a patented ambient light effect.

The central infotainment system's touchscreen has a 10.1 inch diagonal; the area alongside this screen also features touch-sensitive slider controls for the HVAC. The rear seat passengers of the Volkswagen Sport Coupe Concept GTE are treated to a 12.3-inch touchscreen which is integrated between the individual seats. It can be used to operate functions that include the media library, telephone and navigation. Rear passengers can also control the two 10.1-inch screens embedded in the backrests of the front seats via this media control unit. In addition, the slider controls integrated alongside the 12.3-inch display can be used to operate the automatic climate control system, for a four-zone system.

Powering the Volkswagen Sport Coupe Concept GTE is a plug-in hybrid drivetrain. The system consists of a 295 horsepower 3.0 litre turbocharged, direct-injection V6 engine which is backed up by two electric motors. A 54 horsepower motor is integrated into the 6-speed DSG gearbox, while a rear-mounted 114 horsepower electric motor provides additional shove.

If necessary, the system’s power can be distributed to all four wheels thanks to the rear electric motor and an "electric driveshaft". In the sporty GTE mode, the 155 mph coupé accelerates from zero to 62 mph in just 5.0 seconds. The Sport Coupé Concept GTE can be driven all-electrically, with zero emissions, for a distance of at least 32 miles.
