DETROIT — The new 2013 Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid will reach U.S. dealerships in late 2012, sporting a combined average fuel economy of 45 mpg.

The new Jetta Hybrid mates a turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine and a seven-speed DSG dual-clutch with an electric motor and a lithium-ion battery pack. The engine is rated at 150 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. In combination with the 20kW electric motor, the system produces a total 170 hp, providing 0-60 acceleration in less than 9.0 seconds.

The car can also run in pure electric mode up to speeds of 44 mph.

The Jetta Hybrid is distinguished by a new front airdam, rear diffuser and integrated rear spoiler, as well as unique 15-inch wheels with all-season tires.

VW plans to market the Jetta Hybrid in three trim levels. Among the car's standard equipment are LED taillamps and SiriusXM satellite radio.

The option list includes bi-xenon headlights, LED daytime running lights, power driver seat, heated front seats, navigation system, rearview camera and Fender premium audio system.
