EFFICIENT: New VW Transporter is class leader
Volkswagen’s most efficient Transporter ever is now on sale.
Priced from £19,245, the upgraded BlueMotion panel van offers class-leading fuel economy of 48.7mpg and CO2 emissions of 153g/km.
The variant – paired with a 114PS 2.0litre TDI engine – can travel 850miles on a single tank, with improved figures of 3.9mpg and 13g/km over the outgoing model.
Cutbacks have been achieved by modifying the engine management system and transmission, alongside using low rolling resistance tyres, start/stop, battery regeneration systems and cruise control.
Every aspect of the vehicle’s specification has been optimised to reduce weight and improve aerodynamics.
