Plug-in hybrid Arteon now open for order
New plug-in hybrid drivetrain now available to order for 2020 Arteon
We are beyond excited to finally see this latest hybrid addition for the new Arteon, arriving at dealerships in no time.
For the first time ever, the Volkswagen Arteon is now offering a plug-in hybrid comprising of a 1.4-litre TSI petrol engine and an electric motor. Together they provide a peak power output of 218ps and torque of 400 Nm, with prices starting at around £39,905 OTR RRP for the Elegance trim.
The entire Arteon range now in total offers 20 configurations across the fastback and Shooting Brake models with the hybrid available across both body styles. The Elegance and R-Line trims remain available for the hybrid drivetrain with the Arteon R arriving very soon at 320ps and 4MOTION.
This trim features 18-inch 'Almere' alloy wheels, keyless entry across both body shapes, and a rear-view camera with Travel Assist. Travel Assist is Volkswagen's adaptive cruise control with a lane-keeping system as a package.
This top-spec trim comes with 19-inch 'Montevideo' alloy wheels as standard, with new dual trapezoidal exhaust tips on each side of the rear bumper giving it a further sporty appearance. A sunroof is a standard feature for the R-Line specification, whereas the Shooting Brake body style has a larger standard-fit panoramic sunroof. Both receive a rear tinted glass and interior ambient lighting with 30 colour options as standard.
The new Arteon hybrid model can be charged in just five hours, using a standard domestic 3-pin plug. This charging time can be reduced to 3 hours 33 mins if using a 3.6kW AC charger! Energy can also be recovered whilst driving via the infotainment system, allowing battery power to be conserved if needed.
"We are really excited to be adding an electrified model to the Arteon range, and these hybrid models are ready to impress with their own distinctive styling and high levels of efficiency. With an electric-only range of up to 39 miles we expect many customers will be able to achieve zero-emissions driving for most day-to-day trips," says Lisa Hartley, Arteon Product Manager at Volkswagen UK.
The Volkswagen Arteon hybrid models will be arriving at Breeze Volkswagen across 2021. Follow us on social media to keep up with the latest news:
