Redesigned VW Polo May Incorporate Plug-In Electric Hybrid Drive
During this week’s official launch of the refreshed Polo range at Volkswagen’s headquarters in Wolfsburg, Germany, the company confirmed that the two alternative power sources are being developed for the supermini.
Volkswagen’s plug-in hybrid technology sits under the umbrella name ‘TwinDrive’ and the system can be combined with either petrol or diesel combustion engines.
The Wolfsburg-based company has already shown off several plug-in hybrids including the Golf GTE – which marries a transversely mounted 148bhp 1.4-litre four-cylinder direct-injection petrol engine with a 107bhp electric motor – the Twin Up, which used diesel technology derived from the super-frugal XL1 two-seater, and the CrossBlue SUV.
