Volkswagen of America is now launching one of the world’s most efficient automobiles on the market: the new Jetta Hybrid. It is powered by a high-tech turbo petrol engine (TSI with 110 kW / 150 PS) and a zero-emissions electric motor (20 kW) working in a fuel-efficient and environmentally friendly alliance. Power transmission is managed by one of the most advanced and efficient automatic gearboxes: the 7-speed DSG from Volkswagen.

This means that the sporty saloon consumes about 20 per cent less fuel than a comparably powered car with a conventional drive system.
