Half a Dozen BLUETEC Models On The Way

Hungry for more BLUETEC? DaimlerChrysler & Volkswagen have reportedly said that they are on the way to produce almost another half a dozen BLUETEC engine vehicles. So far, on the US side, Mercedes Benz has launched three new diesel models including the E320 BLUETEC. Volkswagen has said that its new Volkswagen Tiguan will launch with a regular gasoline engine at its initial launch in 2007 in the US, but will get a 2.0 liter TDI BLUETEC in the beginning of 2008.

Volkswagen also reported that its first Petrol-Electric Hybrid will be a Jetta in 2009, which may also use the BLUETEC technology. The company also said that its luxury brand, Audi, is planning to jump on board with its own line of BLUETEC in 2008. It seems we can see a wave of BLUETEC models headed our way in 2008 through 2009.
