Report: Volkswagen working on plug-in hybrid car for the U.S.

Given that the Chevy Volt is now mired in recalls, it seems that VW thinks that they can do one better with a Jetta plug in hybrid for the US.

Check out our original post on the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid.

The car will be largely based on the new Jetta Hybrid, will offer an electric-only range of 30-35 miles. Under the hood, there will be the same 1.4 liter turbo four popping out 150 horses.

VW is uninterested in spilling the beans too soon, but it would not be unreasonable to see a similar plugin powertrain make its way into the Passat and/or the Beetle.
