2015 Volkswagen C Coupe GTE ConceptVolkswagen team presented the 2015 C Coupe GTE At the Shanghai Auto Show 2015. This is a four-door concept vehicle, especially designed for the Chinese market. It is over five meter long and is crafted with passion and desire. Not only the striking visuals are what catches the eye, but also the plug-in hybrid drive system is definitely an interesting feature to show.

The C Coupe Concept shows refreshed design and an interesting approach for the interior. The VW crew built a car, that is aggressive and confident looking, but at the same time has some beautiful stylish lines. The low-profile side windows and the horizontal lines are really a must see features.

But the most interesting part about the 2015 Concept is the engine. This car is geared with one of the most advanced plug-in hybrid systems. It contains a turbocharged petrol engine, a 8-speed automatic transmission and a electric motor. The petrol engine delivers 210 hp (154 kW) and the electric motor has an overall output level of 124 hp (91 kW). And the combined power, deliver by both engines brings exactly 245 hp (180 kW) at 500 Nm. One of the best features about the Concept is that the electric motor can be recharged even while driving. How cool is that?

The 2015 C Coupe delivers some wonderful performance and incredible energy efficiency. But despite the smooth drive, this car has some sporty ambitions: it can reach from 0 to 100 km/h (62mph)  in 8.6 and has a top speed of 232 km/h (144 mph)
