Van drivers concerned about saving the planet, or at least saving money on fuel might be interested to learn that Volkswagen has launched its best ever Caddy on fuel. With an official combined cycle fuel consumption of 62.8mpg, Volkswagen claim it is the greenest version of the Caddy yet.
The latest Caddy BlueMotion uses the 1.6-litre TDI common-rail diesel engine. With a 60-litre fuel tank, Volkswagen says that the van can travel up to 800 miles. The company has managed to achieve such impressive fuel consumption by using a combination of improved aerodynamics and engineering measures. These include changing the tyres to low rolling-resistance, including an engine stop-start function, lowering the ride height and using battery regeneration.
The Caddy is a short-wheelbase and is available in four different trims; a panel van, a kombi as well as passenger-carrying versions.
