Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid by 2012

Volkswagen laid out their electric plan for the next few years. As the Touareg Hybrid demonstrates, Volkswagen has plans to expand their hybrid and electric car lineup. By 2013, VW hopes the Golf and Jetta models will 'dominate the hybrid and electric vehicle market.'

The Jetta Hybrid will debut in August 2012, the Passat Hybrid in August 2013 and two months later the Golf Hybrid.

Prof. Dr. Winterkorn, Chairman of the Board of Management of Volkswagen AG explains in a statement: "Volkswagen will be taking E-mobility to mass production. In 2011, we are expanding our test fleet by adding 500 Golfs with electric drive. A hybrid version of the Jetta for the US market follows in 2012. Starting in 2013, the E-UP goes into production. The goal is to become the market leader in E-mobility by the year 2018. We want to attain an electric vehicle market share of three percent within our entire range of products."

He goes on to say: "We will take the hybrid out of its niche status with our high-volume models. In the future, the heart of the brand will also beat with electricity."

Over the next few months, VW will be conducting field studies in 'key strategic markets of Europe, North America and China.'

The E-UP will launch in 2013, the E-Golf will be introduced after. This will be followed by the launch of the E-Jetta.

There doesn't seem to be anything in the middle ground, i.e. a plug-in hybrid laid out here.
