VW goes greener with electric Beetle, Jetta Hybrid
DETROIT–If you’re a Bug fan, chances are you might dig an electric version.
Volkswagen has been showing off its zero-emission E-Bugster concept at the 2012 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, as well as a Jetta Hybrid.
The storied Beetle, which recently had an update for the third generation since its launch in 1949, gets a Blue-e-motion drive unit with a 114-horsepower (85 kW) electric motor and 110 miles of range with its lithium-ion battery.
It does 0-60 mph in a laid-back 10.9 seconds.
