Article by Christian A., on August 25, 2010

Unveiled for the first time back in March at the Geneva Motor Show, the Vw Polo BlueMotion is now available for order as the world's most fuel-efficient five-seater, with only 3.3 litres per 100 kilometres. According to the German manufacturer, the Polo BlueMotion is available with a starting price of 16,500 Euros.

Under the hood, we find and advanced version of the three-cylinder TDI engine with 75 PS / 55 kW capable to deliver, as we said, a fuel consumption of just 3.3 litres per 100 km and 87 g/km of CO2.

Some of the and high-tech components to attain these top-notch low values include Stop-Start system and energy recovery by regenerative braking but also the total weight of just 1,150 kilograms.

Moreover, a nearly closed-off radiator grille and underbody panels designed according to aerodynamic principles and 15-inch "Greenland" type alloy wheels with low rolling resistance tyres make their thing to reduce the fuel consumption.

Some of the standard features of the Polo BlueMotion include cruise control system, leather-trimmed steering wheel and gearshift grip, tyre pressure indicator, front fog lights, sporty styling of front and rear bumpers and outside mirror housings as well as door handles painted in body colour.

Volkswagen recently held a press presentation for its Polo BlueMotion in Hanover showcasing its fuel efficiency. As proof, the brand revealed how driving the Polo BlueMotion for 100 kilometers will only cost around 3.50 Euros in fuel.

This means that if one were to take a drive from Hanover to Venice, the whole 1,148-kilometer travel would only amount to 40 Euros. Now the German Federal Bureau of Statistics states that the average German travels 11,000 kilometers annually.

This means that for those who own a Polo BlueMotion, they would spend only 385 Euros in fuel per year which is equivalent to about eight fill-ups. The first generation of the brand’s Polo BlueMotion was first released in 2006. At that time, its fuel consumption was measured to be 3.9 liters for every 100 kilometers.

As a result, Volkswagen’s five-seater the best when it comes to fuel economy. Since then, the term "BlueMotion" has been associated with being the best environmental label for the German automotive industry. In addition to displaying its fuel economy, Volkswagen also released its successful "BlueMotion-Technologies" brand which lauds itself for its uniqueness.
