The plug-in powertrain is offered on the Life, Elegance and R-Line trims and comes with up to 30 miles of pure EV power, along with generous levels of equipment across the board.

An all-new plug-in ‘eHybrid’ version of Volkswagen’s popular Tiguan compact SUV has arrived in dealerships, priced from £35,515 on-the-road.


The plug-in powertrain is offered on the Life, Elegance and R-Line trims and comes with up to 30 miles of pure EV power, along with generous levels of equipment across the board. All Tiguan eHybrids get triple-zone automatic climate control, adaptive cruise control, front and rear parking sensors and an eight-inch infotainment screen with built-in navigation.


Upgrade to the Elegance, from £37,780, and you get a heated steering wheel, keyless entry and a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster, as well as various extra driver aids such as a rear-view camera and predictive cruise control. The sportier R-Line starts at £38,120 and adds styling upgrades including 20-inch alloys, a roof spoiler and a sporty body kit.


The eHybrid system combines a 1.4-litre petrol engine with an electric motor to produce a collective 242bhp and CO2 emissions of between 38 and 43g/km depending on trim, meaning BIK tax of just 11 to 13 per cent for company car buyers.The powertrain allows up to 30 miles of electric-only driving, giving an official WLTP fuel economy figure of 177mpg, though this comes down on longer journeys.


Volkswagen UK’s Head of Fleet, Nick O’Neill, said: “The Tiguan is already regarded as a great all-rounder, and with the introduction of the Tiguan eHybrid this appeal is boosted even further. “It’s not just fleet managers and company car drivers who will love the Tiguan eHybrid though – the family-friendly Tiguan is up for almost any challenge life can throw at it, and now there’s the flexibility of local trips with zero-tailpipe-emissions to add to the list.”
