concept, which also serves to take the attentions off of the scandal with the tampering of fuel consumption and emissions of the diesel engines of the brand. The GTE Active is a concept with a more off-road design showing the technology to be used in a production version that will reach the market in late 2016.
 
The concept is equipped with a modified version of the hybrid petrol/electric system which was first disclosed in the Golf GTEGolf GTEVolkswagen Golf GTEGermany, 2014 > present9 photos
. This technology allows drivers to opt between front, rear or all-wheel driving modes.
 
Thanks to the two electric motors, the Tiguan GTE Active can be driven in all-wheel drive mode exclusively powered by electricity, but only in short distances (32km at a maximum speed of 112km/h). This is one of the characteristics that Volkswagen is marketing to highlight the environmental credentials of the new five-seat SUV. Combined with a 1.4-liter four-cylinder petrol engine, the electric motors allow the Tiguan GTE Active to offer a combined fuel consumption of 3.1l/100km. In hybrid mode the vehicle has a range of 933km.
 
In addition to demonstrating the application of hybrid technology in the SUV, the Tiguan GTE Active also demonstrates the intention of Volkswagen to offer a more off-road package for the second generation of the modelTiguan Gen.2Volkswagen Tiguan Gen.2Germany, 2015 > present36 versions
