Due to the fact that gas-electric models are often associated with poor performance and style, many potential hybrid buyers look for a vehicle that appears the same as the gas-only variant they love. Despite the fact that the 2013 Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid doesn't fall under that negative hybrid stereotype, VW isn't taking any chances.
