Volkswagen supplies the Tiguan with a 1.5 TSI petrol engine with 130 or 150 hp, but also as a 2.0 TDI turbo diesel with 150 hp. With the introduction of the Volkswagen Tiguan eHybrid, the popular German SUV becomes 95 hp stronger in one go. The plug-in hybrid uses a 1.4 TSI engine and an electric motor, which are linked to a six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The drivetrain is good for 245 hp and 400 Nm. The VW sprints with it to 100 km / h in 7.5 seconds and reaches a top of 205 km / h.
Fully electric range of 47 kilometers
Average consumption is unrealistically set at 1.8 liters per 100 km (1 in 55.5). To get close to that, you’ll need to do the majority of your rides in full electric mode. The Volkswagen Tiguan eHybrid can reach a maximum distance of 47 kilometers on a full battery. Charging the battery at a public charging station or at a wallbox takes approximately 3 hours and 40 minutes. The Tiguan eHybrid can tow a trailer up to a weight of 1800 kilos.
