VW Golf BlueMotion: New concept car with just 99g/km of CO2

VW Golf BlueMotion
VW has released a new concept car, the VW Golf BlueMotion, which produces only 99g/km of CO2. Great!

Under the current road excise duty system, the Golf BlueMotion falls just 1g/km shy of the 100g/km limit for band A – but that will still save owners the £35 per year demanded for cars in higher band B.

The hatchback emits exactly the same amount of CO2 as the smaller Polo BlueMotion and beats the current MkV Golf Bluemotion’s emission count by 20g/km, as well as undercutting the Ford Focus ECOnetic, its key rival, by 16g/km.

The newcomer also boasts fuel economy of 74.3mpg combined – compared to the equivalent Golf V’s 62.8mpg figure – thanks to an ultra efficient 1.6-litre TDI engine that develops 104bhp and 249Nm of torque, allowing the green machine to despatch the 0-62mph sprint in 11.2 seconds.
