VW Tiguan GTE Active

German automaker Volkswagen have just announced the all new 2018 Tiguan, but what really caught our attention was this radical concept that could well be close to a production reality. The spectacular VW Tiguan GTE Active features a 148-hp gasoline engine and a 12.4-kWh battery pack that feeds juice to a pair of electric motors. It has a six-speed, dual-clutch automatic transmission, and features off-road and sporty GTE driving modes, letting the driver access preset driving parameters for Rocks, Sludge and Sand, or Gravel, using a console-mounted dial. The beautiful ride is also designed for off-road adventures, it is raised nearly two inches higher than the normal Tiguan, has skid plates, a burly roof rack, tow hooks, and fender flares over knobby tires to complete the off-road look. watch the video below
