MUNICH, Germany -- Volkswagen AG may introduce a hybrid-powered Jetta in the United States in two years.
A VW spokesman confirmed that VW is considering a so-called mild hybrid vehicle. A mild hybrid uses an electric motor to assist a gasoline-powered engine, but the motor alone does not drive the vehicle. The Honda Civic Hybrid is an example.
VW did not forecast sales volumes or discuss the costs. The company said it has not decided which supplier would provide the technology.
