the VW Jetta Hybrid

it is coming to the USA
soon
Mother VW is getting ready for it's release , now .

as a jetta hybrid
1.4 liter direct injection turbocharged engine with an additional maximum of 110 ftlbs of torque from an electric motor with regenerative braking

7 speed dsg with true engine off coasting or free wheeling with engine running depending on state of charge of the battery and driving conditions

should be comparable to a prius on FE but it will be much quicker off the line , if desired .

i can not post proprietary VW info ....
but almost everything about it looks very great
