Back when VW was still developing the "new beetle," one of the proposals I 
read was that it might be a diesel-ev hybrid.  I think they meant a true 
(plug-in) hybrid, but I'm not 100% sure.  

This would have been 1994 or 1995.  Toyota released its first generation 
Prius in 1997.

VW veered off course with this proposal and ended up making it a rebodied 
ICE Golf.
