As promised earlier VW has introduced the VW Golf BlueMotion at the Frankfurt Motor Show, as well as the VW Golf Plus, the VW Golf Variant, the VW Jetta, the VW Touran, and the VW Caddy. All as environment-friendly BlueMotion models. Nice!
Volkswagen is dramatically expanding the range of its especially environmentally friendly BlueMotion models. After the Polo BlueMotion – the world’s most economical five-seater –, the Passat BlueMotion and Passat Variant BlueMotion, the company is simultaneously introducing six new models at this year’s IAA in Frankfurt that carry BlueMotion technology which is as economical as it is environmentally friendly and affordable: The Golf, Golf Plus, Golf Variant, Jetta, Touran and the near-production concept car Caddy BlueMotion. This means that starting in 2008, Volkswagen will be offering a model with the successful BlueMotion environmental badge in nearly every one of its model series. Together they have the potential, in Germany alone, of saving four million liters of fuel and 10,600 metric tons of CO2 annually.
* Most economical Golf of all times. A highlight anticipated by many car drivers is the new Golf BlueMotion. With just 4.5 liters of diesel per 100 kilometers, its fuel consumption has been reduced by 0.6 liter compared to the predecessor model – a reduction of almost twelve percent. Analogously, CO2 emissions were also reduced by 135 g/km to just 119 g/km now; a top result for a vehicle of its size.
* Clean, practical, economical. Extremely low fuel consumption values are also exhibited by the Golf Variant BlueMotion (4.6 l / 100 km; 122 g/km CO2), the Golf Plus BlueMotion (4.8 l / 100 km; 127 g/km CO2), Jetta BlueMotion (4.6 l / 100 km; 122 g/km CO2), Touran BlueMotion (5.5 l / 100 km; 146 g / km CO2) and the concept car Caddy BlueMotion (5.8 l / 100 km; 154 g/km CO2). They are all powered by an efficient TDI that outputs 77 kW / 105 PS. Always included as standard equipment: The particulate filter.
