New Volkswagen Golf TDI BlueMotion achieves 96mpg

The new seventh-generation Volkswagen Golf TDI BlueMotion has proved itself to be a real three-litre car managing to use only 2.92 litres of diesel per 100 kilometres (97mpg) from a 995 mile trip from Nantes to Copenhagen. The distance between the two cities was completed on a single 50 litre tank of fuel.

The official fuel economy for the new Golf TDI BlueMotion is 88.3mpg (3.2 litres per 100 km) proving that with right driving the actual figures below the standard value are possible.

Simon Thomas, Head of Marketing of the Volkswagen Group and the Volkswagen Passenger Cars brand: “This is a really impressive result. The trip shows that the interaction between fuel-saving BlueMotion efficiency technology and a well thought-out proactive driving approach allows economy figures that are hard to match.”

Drivers from the Volkswagen Driving Experience drove for 20 hours and 45 minutes in normal traffic condition, with the standard 50-litre tank filled in Nantes, where it was sealed by a DEKRA inspector. At the end of the trip, 46.92 litres of diesel were filled into the same tank under the supervision of the same inspector.

The Gold TDI BlueMotion is powered by a 108bhp 1.6-litre common rail TDI from the new EA288 engine series and prices start from £20,335.
