Volkswagen is pitching its brand new plug-in hybrid Golf as a hot hatch. Called the Golf GTE, it will sit in the range alongside the latest petrol-powered GTI and diesel-powered GTD models. Expect a nostalgic tear or two in eyes of older performance Vauxhall fans.

This is no marketing exercise: the combined system output from the new Golf GTE’s 1.4-litre turbo petrol engine and electric motor setup is a punchy 204hp. Yet CO2 emissions are just 35g/km – meaning claimed average fuel economy of 188mpg. No wonder it looks all Tron-like in the pictures.

Cake had and eaten? VW’s got the desert spoons out for the 2014 Geneva Motor Show…
