Volkswagen a inceput sa accepte precomenzi pentru editia BlueMotion a modelului Passat. Asemeni celorlalte automobile din seria BlueMotion, noul Passat este optimizat pentru un consum minim de combustibil si implicit pentru emisii reduce de dioxid de carbon. Consumul de motorina pentru 100 de kilometri rulati se ridica la numai 4.4 litri in conditiile in care motorul cu o capacitate de 1.6 litri ofera o putere de 105 cai. Emisiile de dioxid de carbon de numai 114 grame sunt si ele sub media unor modele echivalente ca dimensiuni si motorizari. Tehnnologiile implementate in noul Passat includ: sisteme de recuperare a energiei pierdute la franare, sistem start/stop, modificari aerodinamice, precum si modificari la nivelul motorului. Pretul de pornire al acestui model in Germania este de 27.850 de euro.
Gama de modele BlueMotion mai include: Golf si Golf Plus cu motoare de 1.6 TDI (77 kW / 105 CP), Scirocco, Eos si Tiguan cu motorizari pe benzina de 1.4 litri TSI (90 kW / 122 CP) precum si modelele Passat berlina, Passat break si Passat CC ce pot fi comandate cu motoare de doi litri pe motorina (103 kW / 140 CP).

Advance sales for Passat BlueMotion now underway
In addition, Volkswagen expands BlueMotion Technology range
Wolfsburg, 04 November 2009 – Never before has Volkswagen had so many fuel-efficient and clean models in its range – now ten more new ready-to-order variants are joining the list. In addition to the Passat BlueMotion, an impressive proposition with a consumption of a mere 4.4 litres of fuel per 100 kilometres and CO2 emissions of only 114 g/km, Volkswagen is launching three new BlueMotion Technology packages available for various models.
Equipped with the 1.6 TDI engine (77 kW / 105 PS), the Passat BlueMotion provides not only an exceptionally good balance of comfort and dynamics but also fuel efficiency and exemplary emission values. Technologies used in the Passat BlueMotion to lower consumption and emissions include brake energy recovery (regeneration), the start/stop system and various aerodynamic measures. Like the new Polo and Golf BlueMotion, the exterior and interior equipment has also been customised. The Passat BlueMotion has a starting price of €27,850.
At the same time, the basic technologies and innovations from the BlueMotion models are being integrated in an increasingly large product spectrum. As a result, Volkswagen now offers nine additional vehicles with the BlueMotion Technology package: the Golf and Golf Plus engine line-ups now carry the 1.6 TDI with 77 kW / 105 PS, which can be combined with either the 6-speed manual gearbox or the 7-speed DSG. The Scirocco, Eos and Tiguan are available with the new 90 kW / 122 PS strong 1.4 TSI engine. The Tiguan, Passat saloon, Passat estate and Passat CC can now also be ordered with the 2.0 TDI with 103 kW / 140 PS as BlueMotion Technology.
The Passat 1.4 TSI BlueMotion Technology with the 7-speed DSG now provides a new additional function: the new coasting function steps in to make better use of the vehicle’s kinetic (coasting) energy. When in overrun, the engine is disengaged and held at idling speed. This allows the vehicle to coast for a longer distance, enabling savings of 0.5 litres per 100 km or more in combination with an anticipatory driving style.
