  1. DSC Gearbox Variants

    General Volkswagen EV Forum
    This is one for the techies really. How many variations are there of the VW DSG gearbox? Does the GTE have the same one as the Golf R? I ask because this is my theory for the 1500kg towing limit of the GTEs . If the box can handle 400 bhp, 210 plus the extra weight of a caravan is probably a...
  2. Towing caravans

    General EV Discussion
    Hi, are there any EVs or PHEVs that are allowed to tow caravans? I have a Mini Countryman PHEV but just realised today it is not allowed to tow (no towing weight on V5, no train weight on vehicle plate). Anyone come across anything that can tow?

  7. Towing with a GTE

    Volkswagen Golf GTE
    Having recently returned from Corfe Castle Camping & Caravanning Club site I thought I would jot down my experience of towing a [email protected] 400 with the Golf GTE. First some technical details. The MTPLM of the [email protected] 400 is 1,200kg and the unladen weight of the GTE is 1,599kg so the outfit was well under...
