VW Eos: Going BlueMotion

VW Eos BlueMotion
The VW Eos will receive the BlueMotion treatment as first gasoline car.

Bluemotion tech has only previously been available on diesel models, including the Golf and Polo, but VW has now applied some of the technology to the 1.4-litre TSI Eos.

Bluemotion technologies cars stop short of being full Bluemotion models as there are no aerodynamic changes. Instead, the car gets regenerative braking, a stop-start system, a hill hold system and a gearchange indicator.

These changes help reduce the car’s CO2 emissions from 152g/km to 144g/km, which puts it into VED band F, saving £25 per year over the standard car. Combined fuel economy is 45.6mpg.
