Volkswagen to debut three new models in Frankfurt

VW Frankfurt 2013

Volkswagen has announced plans to present three important world premieres at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show next month.

First up, the Golf R uses a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine which develops 300 hp and 380 Nm of torque. This allows the all-wheel drive hatchback to sprint from 0-100 km/h in 5.1 seconds (4.9 seconds with the optional six-speed DSG) and hit an electronically-limited top speed of 250 km/h.

Next, the e-Golf is slated to feature a 26.5 kWh lithium-ion battery and an electric motor which produces 115 hp and 270 Nm of torque. It could enable the car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 11.8 seconds, hit a top speed of 135 km/h and travel up to 175 km.

The third model remains a mystery, but the main themes at Volkswagen's stand are Think Blue, 4MOTION (four-wheel drive) and the WRC (World Rally Championship).
