The new Passat Blue Motion from the German manufacturer, Volkswagen is truly a remarkable car (or bil deler as we Danes say). The technology of Blue Motion integrated with this vehicle helps you immensely in cutting down on fuel costs. At the same time, it retains all the comforts and coziness of the standard models.
As you might already know, the Blue Motion technology is an innovation that helps the car to conserve energy in an efficient manner, trim down on CO2 emissions, and provide the thrill of driving to a greater level. With this technology implemented in your car, you’ll be directly contributing towards the preservation of the earth’s environment.
It needs to be said that Volkswagen has done a good job with implementing Blue Motion in all the engine parts of the Passat. The engine of the Passat is of a 2.0 L CR TDI type with a torque of 350NM and providing an output of 170PS. More commendable is the fact that there are around 1750 to 2500 rotations every minute which helps in providing excellent power and an abundance of torque to the vehicle. As mentioned earlier, fuel consumption is significantly less in these types of vehicles implemented with the Blue Motion technology.
Features that help conserve energy in the Volkswagen Passat
The Volkswagen Passat Blue Motion comes equipped with several additional features that help it lower fuel consumption. For instance, the start/stop feature comes in handy for people who always stuck up in traffic congestions or wait in long boring queues at a drive-through. You’ll start seeing the difference if you are living in a crowded place. Now if you are wondering how a start/stop system in Blue Motion works, here’s how:
The start/stop system helps your car shut down automatically when you take your foot off from the accelerator. You don’t have to worry about turning on the car when the traffic moves again as the system automatically turns the engine on as soon as you place your foot on the clutch (in case of the DSG engine, the car will start itself when you place your foot on the accelerator). Hence, unnecessary wastage of fuel can be prevented.
The Recuperation technique
Another advantage of the Volkswagen Passat Blue Motion is the recuperation system. This feature works on the principle of the conversion of kinetic energy into electrical energy. Every time you apply the brake on your Passat, the kinetic energy that is produced is converted into electrical energy and stored in the battery of your car. This means that your car’s battery is charged every time when you apply the brake. The stored energy is then utilized for starting the car or for acceleration purposes.
Easy and efficient transmissions
Another feature worth mentioning is that both the DSG dual clutch gearbox and the manual ones in the Passat are optimized in a way that makes it much effective for early up-shifts, delayed downshifts and longer ratios. This contributes a great deal towards the energy efficiency of the car, at the same time providing you a swift and comfortable journey.
With all its advanced features, energy conservation techniques and aesthetic style, Blue Motion is definitely the greatest innovation in the car-making industry at present. So what are you waiting for? Grab a new Volkswagen Passat and be a part of the environmental friendly Blue Motion technology
