Volkswagen Golf BlueMotion Concept

A couple of weeks ago, the German carmaker Volkswagen offered us the first information on the new-generation Golf, the MK7. Now they have decided to tell us more about it and also show it to us through a nice photo gallery. Anyway, at the Paris Motor Show the new Golf 7 will be undressed completely. The Volkswagen Golf BlueMotion has the informational stickers on the side of the car and it will also be available for same everywhere in Europe in around one year time. The carmaker says this is the most fuel efficient Golf they have ever built using only 3.2 liters per 100 km. The CO2 emission level reaches 85 g/km. The model introduced back in 2007 had a fuel consumption rated at 4.5-liters per 100 km and 119 g/km Co2 emission level and the ones introduced in 2009 used 3.8-liter per 100 km and emitted 99 g/km CO2.

Now returning to the new Volkswagen Golf BlueMotion, you should know that in theory it has a range of 1.562 km. To be more precise, the carmaker says the if one owner will drive for 15.000 miler per year, he will only have to refuel ten times per year. The new model will receive power from a 1.6-liter TDI diesel engine capable of developing 109 horsepower and 250 Nm of torque. This output enables the car to reach a top speed of 202 km/h. To obtain this fuel economy the engineers have used several elements like very low rolling resistance tires, but that have higher air pressure, a battery regeneration mode, a Start / Stop system and longer gear ratios for the 5-speed manual transmission.

The suspension lowered the car by 15 mm. The carmaker also equipped the model with a roof spoiler, lateral air guide elements on the rear window, special under-floor panels, and optimized brake cooling channels, a C-pillar spoiler and partially closed air inlet screens. The new Volkswagen Golf BlueMotion will be available in two trim levels: Comfortline and Trendline. These are all the information available on the model, but more info will be presented as soon as the model will be revealed at the Paris Motor Show, these days.
