VW Tiguan GTE Active Concept Review, Price

Hybrid vehicles are being rather synonymous in today’s world.
They use less gasoline, release minimal exhaust into the air
and have lower carbon emissions making them very environmental
friendly. Hybrid cars generally use two or more engines; a
conventional engine and an electric motor. The gas engine comes
in handy in powering the car at higher speeds whereas the
electric motor is used to power the car at lower
speeds. The VW Tiguan GTE Active Concept is the
latest craze. It is definitely a classic and you got to have
it.

VW Tiguan GTE Active Concept – Main Power Production Unit

Volkswagen has not been left behind when it comes to hybrid
vehicles. The Volkswagen Tiguan GTE Active Concept is one
of the latest models in the market. It has a unique combination
when it comes to the electric motor and conventional engine. It
has two different electric motors that power the rear and front
wheels independently. Under ordinary driving conditions, the
rear wheels are the only ones driven. However, when it is
necessary, it is easy to activate both the rear and front
wheels. This can happen for instance if you are on the road for
a longer period of time or if the road is slippery or a bit
more demanding. The GTE Concept has a 148 horsepower, turbocharged engine which is gasoline
fed. This provides extra power for the front wheels through an
automatic transmission of a six speed dual clutch. Their front
motor can also work as a generator which can be used to charge
the car’s batteries. If you do not want to use the electric
motor you can opt for the gasoline engine which can as well
power the front wheels on its own. The VW has a 12.4 k WH
lithium-ion battery placed at the rear on the floor of the
luggage compartment. The battery can be charged using the
petrol engine. Alternatively you can use the electric motor
when the battery is depleted of energy.
