2011 Volkswagen Touareg Hybrid (photos)
The Touareg Hybrid is a surprising vehicle, featuring a supercharged gas engine that, combined with its electric motor, gives it scary acceleration. Fuel economy is decent, but the real story here is power.
The power train consists of a supercharged direct-injection 3-liter V-6, supported by an electric motor powered by a 1.7kWh battery pack. The system generates 380 horsepower and 428 pound-feet of torque.
