But, as you can see, this is not "our" Passat. It is the more modern all new 2015 European version.
It is powered by a small 1.4 Liter engine with an electric motor for a total of 218HP.
Which is really good. As the same 1.4 Liter/Electric combo in the Jetta Hybrid , with "only" 170HP, already feels really quick.
And, you get a pure electric range of about 31 miles. Or about 10 more than a similar For Fusion.
This all sounds quite good.
But again, NOT for us...
