BlueMotion – Innovative Volkswagen Technology
Volkswagen is dedicated to ensuring that their vehicles make as little impact on the environment as possible. As a result of the ‘Think Blue’ philosophy within the brand, the BlueMotion engine came about. This revolutionary engine has seen a number of the Volkswagen vehicles reduce their fuel consumption and carbon emissions, which is great for the environment and great for your pocket.
Small changes make a big difference. That is the motto of the BlueMotion team and the engine can offer up to a 10% reduction in fuel and emissions, depending on your driving style.
Key changes that have made a big difference across the BlueMotion range are:
Recharging the battery when decelerating and less on accelerating harness efficient energy consumption
Seamless switching-off of the engine when it is stationary and starting up again when the appropriate pedal movement is engaged.
Low-Rolling Resistance Tyres
Tyres that need less engine power to turn without reduction in performance. These are combined with lightweight alloy wheels for improvements in aerodynamics.
TDI or TSI engines
Depending on whether you are driving a diesel or a petrol, our award winning engine choices ensure fuel efficient driving with low emissions.
Maximum fuel efficiency can be attributed in part to longer gear ratios in higher gears.
All of the vehicles in the BlueMotion range have a much lighter body mass to increase fuel efficiency
On the Polo & Golf models the lowered suspension offers improved aerodynamics and reduced drag co-efficiency
Specialist covers reduce the drag co-efficiency on BlueMotion vehicles in addition to closed front grilles and a modified tailgate spoiler.
