2013 IAA: Vw Caddy BlueMotion is most fuel-efficient Caddy ever

Article by Christian A., on September 10, 2013

The success of the Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles’ Caddy is owed to the variety of versions and engines available. Its popularity is expected to grow further with the addition of the new Caddy BlueMotion – its most fuel-efficient Caddy ever. It boasts an impressively low fuel consumption of 4.5 litres per 100 km (62.8 mpg).

The new Caddy BlueMotion is powered by the 1.6-litre TDI with common rail direct injection and 75 kW / 102 PS with a maximum torque of 250 Newton metres. In comparison with the already very fuel-efficient Caddy 1.6-litre TDI with BlueMotion Technology, the new Caddy BlueMotion’s fuel consumption has been further dropped by 0.5 litres per 100 km. It is also better than the regular Caddy by a full 1.1 litres per 100 km.

Because of this, the commercial version of the versatile urban delivery vehicle uses up only 4.5 litres per 100 km, which is equivalent to 117 g/km of CO2. The figures for the passenger-carrying version are 4.6 litres and 119 g/km. Due to its 60 litre fuel tank, the Caddy BlueMotion has a theoretical range of more than 1,300 km (over 800 miles).

The new Caddy BlueMotion has low fuel consumption levels because of the use of aerodynamic and engineering measures like an engine stop-start function, low rolling resistance tires, recovery of braking energy (battery regeneration), ride height made lower by 27 mm and efficient engine control.

There are four equipment versions available for a Caddy BlueMotion with a short wheelbase. It is offered in passenger-carrying versions, as a panel van and as a kombi.
