Volkswagen introduces Transporter BlueMotion model

A BlueMotion version of the sixth-generation Transporter panel van is now available to order from Volkswagen Van Centres.

The most frugal edition of the T6 short wheelbase panel van uses the 2.0-litre TDI 102 PS Euro 6 common rail diesel engine. The standard van in Startline form with five-speed manual gearbox, this van returned 47.9 mpg and 153 g/km, but the BlueMotion model is capable of returning 51.4 mpg on the combined cycle (a 7% improvement) and sees CO2 emissions reduced to 145 g/km.

In order to achieve these improvements, the new BlueMotion Transporter adds aerodynamically improved wheel spoilers and lowered suspension, modified gear ratios, low friction tyres, cruise control and a speed limiter (to 62 mph) to the standard BlueMotion Technology modifications which come as standard on all T6 models. These include Stop/Start and battery regeneration systems.

The new Transporter BlueMotion has a gross vehicle weight of 2.7 tonnes, and a payload of 839 kg, which is up to 121 kg more than that of the short wheelbase T26 2.0-litre TDI 102 PS five-speed manual.

The new van starts from £19,670.
