The Volkswagen Caddy is already available in a number of different versions and engine choices but now, a new version is added: the Volkswagen Caddy Bluemotion, a super efficient Caddy that'll debut at the Frankfurt motor show 2013.
It gets a 1.6-litre TDI engine, which has a maximum torque of 250Nm and manages an impressive 62.8mpg. Compared with the already efficient Caddy with BlueMotion Technology, fuel consumption has been improved from 56.4mpg to 62.8mpg. The overall result is a car which emits just 117 g/km of CO2.
These figures were achieved through a combination of aerodynamic and engineering measures such as engine stop-start, low rolling resistance tyres, recovery of braking energy and a low ride height.
Features such as hill hold assist, cruise control and exclusive seat upholstery are all available as standard. The Volkswagen Caddy BlueMotion, with a short wheelbase, is available in four equipment versions - as a panel van, kombi and passenger-carrying versions.
The Volkswagen Caddy has sold nearly 10,000 units so far in 2013, placing it ahead of the Ford Transit Connect, which has sold just shy of 4,700 and the Mercedes Citan which has sold only 1,200. The addition of the Bluemotion to the range might help Volkswagen push the Caddy further up the sales market, too.
