Volkswagen to launch first hybrid Jetta in 2009

The rise in gasoline prices has prompted car manufacturers to start producing fuel-sipping models. However, in this fight against rising fuel cost, car companies went their separate ways and decided to divide themselves into two separate camps: gas-electric hybrids and alternative fuel.

While Japan decided to concentrate on producing and perfecting (almost) hybrid technology, Europe decided to go with alternative fuel, developing economic diesel engines that make cars go longer for less. Volkswagen itself has concentrated on producing fuel efficient engines, FSI, TSI, and TDI, for example.

But that will all change by the end of the decade. Volkswagen will be crossing camps and will finally be adopting gas-electric hybrids by 2009. Volkswagen commented in a UK publication that they are poised to launch their first Jetta hybrid in 2009. It comes as no surprise. Volkswagen's TDI already leave hybrids in the dust in terms of mileage and cost. The possibility of a TDI hybrid should sufficiently appease the tree lovers out there.

Just give us the VW Polo in the USA. Forget the overbloated Jetta, etc.

Some of us need the room of the Jetta, a Polo is too small. My request though as a previous owner of a '95, '97, '04, and '06 Jetta, is that VW return to the clean euro styling. Also, I as a current BMW owner, I will not return to VW until quality is #1 priority. 3 of the 4 Jetta's I bought were repurchased by VW for being lemons. If you have a problem (doors/sunroofs falling off) VW is so arrogant it's crazy. The dealer apologized for the last one being such a piece of S**T, but VWofA blamed the dealer for my disatisfaction! Great dealer, horrible higher ups.
