– New Volkswagen Golf TDI BlueMotion uses reduction than 3 liters per 100 kilometers
  on a “Think Blue. Eco Ride.“
– 1602 kilometers – from Nantes to Copenhagen but refueling
– DEKRA-supervised exam value shows: tangible expenditure total next a standard
  value are possible

On a outing from Nantes to Copenhagen, a Golf with a 81 kW/110 PS TDI engine used usually 2.92 liters of diesel per 100 kilometers. On a DEKRA-supervised exam run, a Volkswagen Golf TDI BlueMotion has valid itself to be a genuine three-liter car. On a outing from Nantes to Copenhagen, a Golf with a 81 kW/110 PS TDI engine used usually 2.92 liters of diesel per 100 kilometers. The stretch between a dual cities – 1602 kilometers – was finished with a singular tankful.

Simon Thomas, Head of Marketing of a Volkswagen Group and a Volkswagen Passenger Cars brand: “this is a unequivocally considerable result. The outing shows that a communication between fuel-saving BlueMotion potency record and a good thought-out active pushing proceed allows economy total that are tough to match.”

The rarely sundry track of a outing led from Nantes in a West of France, a “European Green Capital 2013”, around Paris, Antwerp, Bremen and Hamburg to a Danish collateral Copenhagen, situated on a Baltic, “European Green Capital 2014”. The “Think Blue. Eco Ride.” shows that a customary expenditure figure formed on a NEDC pushing cycle, that is already intensely low during 3.2 liters per 100 kilometers and 85 grams of CO2 per kilometer, can even be beaten. Drivers from a Volkswagen Driving Experience succeeded in reaching a accurate value of 2.92 liters of diesel per 100 kilometers in normal trade over a pushing time of 20 hours and 45 minutes. The customary 50-litre tank was filled in Nantes, where it was hermetic by a DEKRA inspector.

The Golf TDI BlueMotion is one of a technical highlights of a Golf family. Like all a other Golf models. It has a customary start-stop complement and regenerative braking mode. In addition, a polished aerodynamics, a low weight of a vehicle, a mutated six-speed primer gearbox and generally a tires, that have been optimized for low rolling resistance, minister to a high potency of a Golf TDI BlueMotion.

“Think Blue.” Is a internationally-based holistic environmental sustainability plan of a Volkswagen Passenger Cars brand. The beginning includes innovative, environmentally concordant products with several powertrain technologies and is dictated to inspire people to rethink and join in. Simon Thomas: “Through ‘Think Blue.’, we uncover that low-consumption pushing can be total with pushing pleasure. This is because Volkswagen offers fuel saving training in a series of countries, for instance ‘Think Blue. Ecotraining’ in team-work with ‘Naturschutzbund Deutschland in Germany.’“
