Greenpeace turns its attention towards the 2015 VW Golf Mk7


The well-known organization Greenpeace seems to be very close to the German carmaker Volkswagen. For example, last year, after the mini Darth Vader campaign made by the Germans, the non-governmental organization came up with a new commercial that underlined the environmental record of the carmaker. Unfortunately, the commercial was removed from YouTube because of a copyright problem claimed by Lucasfilm Ltd. The same ones also own the rights for the Star Wars films and other related products. This was not really a big problem for Greenpeace. They have returned with another campaign, focusing their attention towards the 7th generation Golf hatchback. This new model will have its first official public premier at the Paris Motor Show next month, but before this, the specialists will reveal it in Berlin on the 4th of September. The video published by the organization includes a journalist preparing itself for talking to a VW executive about the new VW Golf Mk7 Jedi Edition powered by a petrol unit with a fuel consumption of 282 mpg and by a hybrid diesel option with a fuel economy of 315 mpg and which also emits 75% less CO2 emissions. The first episode ends with the reporter entering the room where the VW executive and Darth Vader wait for her. The ones involved in Greenpeace have created a special website with a timer that counts the days and hours remained until the big reveal of the new Volkswagen Golf Mk7 Jedi Edition. For example, in 2011, the same organization posted an article on its website saying bad things about the German Group. They said that even if they try to seem environmental friendly, at the base the German specialists fight against laws that oblige the reduction of the CO2 emissions, reduce oil use and they also do not do things that protect the Arctic from climate change.
