Volkswagen has unveiled its new Sport Coupe GTE concept in Geneva this week, boasting of a “new design era” for the brand.

That new era won’t rise out of a revolution, but it is clear that Volkswagen is preparing to take its familiar theme of sharp lines and tight angles to a new level.

Headlining that evolution is a tall new grille design that dips into the front bumper and, like the recent Taigun and Cross Coupe concepts, merges outward into each headlight.

A long tapered roofline is the standout styling feature of the Sport Coupe’s profile, with the low-slung glasshouse sitting above a soft character line that runs through the door tops.

An integrated boot lip at the rear folds tightly back into toward the tail lamps, sleek rear bumper and extended exhaust outlets.

Debuting as a clear and largely production-ready preview of the new-generation CC four-door coupe, the Sport Coupe GTE also highlights the next step in Volkswagen’s growing hybridisation program.

Power is provided by a 3.0 litre V6 TSI petrol engine that drives the front wheels, while an electric motor turns the rear axle.

Volkswagen claims a total combined output of 280kW and a 0-100km/h time of just 5.2 seconds, on its way to a 250km/h top speed.

But, as a plug-in hybrid, the GTE’s tricks also include an all-electric driving range of 50 kilometres and combined fuel consumption figures of 2.0 l/100km flat. A total driving range of around 1000km is claimed.

Away from the power stakes, the four-seater GTE also delivers a spacious interior, riding on a wheelbase that, at 3020mm, is a significant 310mm longer than the current CC’s setup.

Thanks to short overhangs, though, the Sport Coupe GTE’s overall length of 4869mm is only 71mm longer than the current CC.

Features in the cabin include a larger 12.3-inch instrument display behind the steering wheel, along with a 10.1-inch main display in the centre stack.

Rear passengers don’t go without, however, with a pair of large displays mounted in the back of the front seats and another 12.3-inch control screen set between each of the rear seats.

Watch for the GTE to make its way to production as the new CC sometime in 2016.
