Volkswagen has unveiled details of three new BlueMotion models ahead of the Frankfurt Motor Show which opens on September 15.
The new Polo, Golf and Passat BlueMotion models emit 87 g/km, 99 g/km and 114 g/km of carbon dioxide respectively while every variant is also capable of travelling a minimum of 840 miles on a single tank of fuel.
The new Polo BlueMotion comes with a new 1.2-litre diesel engine which develops 73bhp and will do a manufacturer quoted 85.6mpg.
The Golf BlueMotion emits 99 g/km of CO2 and can achieve a combined economy figure of 74.3 mpg.
The Passat BlueMotion features a 1.6-litre diesel which replaces the existing 2.0-litre TDI unit currently fitted to the Passat BlueMotion. VW says it allows the new car to return 64.2 mpg on the combined cycle – up from the 57.6 mpg achieved by the outgoing car. At the same time emissions fall from 128 g/km to 114 g/km of CO2.
All three models are due to go on sale in the UK in early 2010 with prices and specifications due to be announced nearer the time.
