Volkswagen Commercial introduces new Caddy BlueMotion

Article by Anita Panait, on August 30, 2013

Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles is now offering a fuel-efficient version of the Caddy -- the new Caddy BlueMotion. This new Caddy offering consumes just 4.5 liters of fuel per 100 kilometer and is powered by a 1.6-litre TDI with common rail direct injection that provides up to 75 kW/102 PS of output and 250 Newton meters of torque.

This version is even more fuel efficient than the Caddy 1.6-liter TDI with BlueMotion technology that consumes 5 liters of fuel per 100 km. It is more fuel efficient than the Caddy without fuel-saving technology, which consumers 6.6 liters per 100 km.

The fuel economy figures of the Caddy BlueMotion translates to carbon dioxide emission figure of 117 grams per km. Fuel consumption and emission figures for the passenger version of the Caddy BlueMotion are 4.6 liters and 119 g of carbon dioxide per kilometer. The Caddy BlueMotion, which has a fuel tank capacity of 60 liters, has a range of 1,300 km.

The carmaker was able to achieve these low fuel consumption figures by combining aerodynamic and engineering measures like an engine stop-start function, low rolling resistance tires, recovery of braking energy (battery regeneration) and efficient engine control. The carmaker also lowered the ride height by 27 mm.

The new Caddy BlueMotion with a short wheelbase could be availed in four equipment versions: as a panel van and kombi and the Startline and Trendline passenger versions. The Caddy BlueMotion is distinguishable by a badge at the rear, a lower ride height, special full wheel covers and painted side guard strips.

Inside, the van is also distinguishable by equipment features like standard hill hold assist, cruise control system, exclusive seat upholstery and air nozzles in high-gloss black for the passenger version. The Caddy BlueMotion carries a starting price of EUR17,720 (net) for the panel van and EUR21,759.15 (including VAT) for the Startline passenger version. [source: Volkswagen]
