MTM Turns A VW T6 Into A Diesel-Hybrid For A Shocking 811lb ft Of Torque

The new VW T6 E-Motion hybrid doesn’t come from the factory as the name suggests, but straight out of the MTM tuning house.

Instead of fiddling with bigger turbos and other traditional ways of making more power, MTM took the liberty and created a hybrid powertrain for the T6, based on the 2.0-litre BiTDI engine.

The twin-turbodiesel engine now makes 240hp and is paired with VW’s seven-speed double-clutch gearbox. MTM added a pair of 15kW electric hub motors at the rear axle, making this T6 essentially an all-wheel drive model. The additional 42hp brings the power up to a combined 282hp and more importantly 811lb ft (1100Nm) of torque.

MTM claims a 0-62mph (0-100km/h) in 8.2 seconds and a top speed of 133mph (215km/h). Unlike the released image, the show car will ride on Bimoto 9×20 alloy wheels shod in 275/35 Michelin Pilot Super Sports.

We have no further info released on how this hybrid system actually cooperates with the factory powertrain but we hope MTM to enlighten us, once Geneva Motor Show opens its gates.
