Volkswagen will introduce the Golf GTE plug-in hybrid compact car in Europe after bringing it to the Geneva International Motor Show starting March 4.

The Golf GTE represents the fifth powertrain offered on the Golf, which is also produced in gasoline, diesel, natural gas, and battery-electric versions. The Golf GTE has an NEDC hybrid combined fuel rating of 157 miles per gallon and an all-electric range of 31 miles. It's overall range is 584 miles, according to the automaker.

Volkswagen's Golf GTE pairs two engines — a 1.4L direct-injected turn TSI generating 148 horsepower and a 101 hp electric motor. The vehicle is expected to generate 258 lb.-ft. of torque.

The GTE also comes with a driving range monitor, an energy flow display along with "zero emission statistics" and an "e-manager."
