The diesel-electric VW Cross Coupe has made its debut at Geneva

A new plug-in diesel hybrid version of the Volkswagen Cross Coupe Concept is starring at the Geneva Motor Show.

Details are scarce, but the company has revealed that its Range Rover Evoque rival will be powered by a combination of a turbodiesel and two electric motors.

The car is no slouch: with a total of 302bhp, it should sprint from 0-60mph in less than seven seconds and hit 137mph. Plus, VW claims the hybrid Cross Coupe returns an amazing 157mpg and emits only 46g/km of CO2.

Expect more details on the new Cross Coupe when it is unveiled at an exclusive preview event on Monday night.
