If you’re a journalist or a business visitor planing on going to the Geneva Motor Show this week get ready to go there ‘environmentally-friendly’ style. Volkswagen will be providing Geneva Motor Show visitors a total of 102 Polo BlueMotions for the press days to be used as shuttles. The Volkswagen Polo BlueMotion gets by on only 3.9 liters of diesel over 100 kilometers. Its CO2 emissions are only 102 g/km.
Commenting on this, Dr. Martin Winterkorn, Chairman of Volkswagen AG, said, “Our BlueMotion philosophy neatly balances fuel economy with driving fun. Volkswagen already offers 78 models today with a 5 in front of the decimal point in terms of fuel economy, 13 of them get by on 3.9 to 4.9 liters. With numbers like these Volkswagen is setting the pace in terms of fuel economy. And that”s why we will be placing a big brother alongside the Polo BlueMotion in a world premiere tomorrow here in Geneva: the new Passat BlueMotion. It”s the first mid-range car of this size with fuel economy of 5.1 liters.”
As he said Volkswagen will be debuting the Passat BlueMotion at Geneva, which gets a driving range of 839 miles on a full tank.
