Purpose

I will try my best to provide detailed info on various cars and what is like to live with them, I have already produced a few for Jaguar-car-forums, I will do my best to be unbiased, but it will be hard for some cars. I will re-produce press releases and copy from other motoring news.

A BlueMotion version of the 6th-gen Transporter panel van is available to order adding impressive economy to the award winner.

A BlueMotion version of the sixth-generation Transporter panel van is now available to order from Volkswagen Van Centres, adding impressive economy to the multi-award-winning van’s already long list of credentials.
The most frugal edition of the T6 short wheelbase panel van has at its heart the proven 2.0-litre TDI 102 PS Euro 6 common rail diesel engine. 
Even in standard Startline form with five-speed manual gearbox, this van returned impressive economy and CO2 figures: 47.9 mpg and 153 g/km. The BlueMotion model is capable of returning 51.4 mpg on the combined cycle (a seven per cent improvement) and 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.
Costing £19,670 (basic price ex VAT), the Transporter BlueMotion is available to order now at all Volkswagen Van Centres.
