The next Volkswagen GTI will not be a hybrid

The new VW GTI, which is due for 2020, will not be a hybrid, we have learned. The Volkswagen Group boss put an end to the project.

For some time, rumours have been rife that the new generation of the Volkswagen GTI will be hybrid. Unfortunately, this will no longer be the case. The 8th generation GTI should be powered by an improved version of the 2.0T currently in the MK7.

Could we see some similar specs as the Volkswagen GTI TCR that was launched not too long ago? That special edition produces 286-horsepower and 273 lb.-ft. of torque from a tuned version of the turbocharged 2.0-litre 4-cylinder engine.

The hybrid system proposed on the GTI MK8 would be based on the current 2.0T EA888 engine. Volkswagen is expected to unveil this version of the engine later this year.

It was the former CEO of the German brand who pushed for the new GTI to have this hybrid engine. On the other hand, when he was replaced by Herbert Diess, the latter overturned the decision.

According to Autocar, the new 2.0L turbo hybrid will be mated to an electric motor and a 48V electrical architecture.

The new GTI MK8, which should be unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show, should have the same transmissions that are found in the MK7, a 6-speed manual and a 7-speed DSG.
