Volkswagen will bring to Detroit and hybrid electric trolley

There is evidence that the German manufacturer Volkswagen will bring to the Detroit auto show in concept electric and hybrid version of the Jetta. Interestingly, the electric trolley will be the name of "pure concept" - it is not built on any of the current models of the concern and is unlikely to be produced commercially. Perhaps the car will get some design elements from the VW Beetle, to look more authentic and familiar, but this is not an electric version of "bug". But the Jetta hybrid will be in U.S. showrooms by November. The car will be in direct competition to the dominant U.S. market, Toyota Prius. Under the hood is a new 1.4-liter turbocharged petrol engine which works in tandem with an electric motor.
