VW Hybrid Cars
VW were typically a car producer that has a large share if the car markets around the world. However, they were famous for being diesel lovers - they were not about to develop a hybrid car soon since they are traditionally keen on perfect performance on the cost of a larger fuel demand of their vehicles. Recently, opposite to the expectations, VW announced that two models from the brand would be developed as Hybrids - Taureg and Jetta.
The VW Toureg Hybrid will be going head to head with the likes of Honda’s insight hybrid, and will be equipped with a V6 gas engine and supported by a powerful electric motor. From the manufacturer announced in September last year that they are planning to include innovative technologies and supermodern recharging principles for the batteries (something more that the already known breaking system recharger) that would be installed as well as special installments that would shrink the fuel demand by the engine.
The Jetta hybrid model would be released in 2012 and would be with a stunning design (that has been mainly incorporated in Audi cars) and a body made wholly from lightened steel. Strongly aerodynamic and with advanced hybrid technology, the car is expected to be a total hit on the US market (the second largest market for the car industry).
The plans that VW have announced are completely in contrast with their usual attractions since they were totally against making hybrid models of their best cars. However, the governmental policies that are to take place in several years would aim to reduce as much as possible the carbon emissions. On the other hand VW has the goal of increasing its influence on the car market and achive a steady sales growth over the next years, so in order to achieve that the german giant would have to comply with the newest green policies that are to be issued by the governments in the next couple of years.
