VW Golf Bluemotion Diesel concept
VW claims it’ll be able to get 74.3 MPG (That’s about 62MPG US) when it goes on sale in Europe in the second half of 2009.
That’s pretty amazing and would actually be better than the current Prius. Without an electric engine.
We’ll see if VW decides to sell this version over here.
That would be a good idea, if they want to stand out from the crowd, like they should. Offer something different.

that would be a great idea only when the american landscape is dotted with diesel refill stations.
diesel isnt hydrogen…. you can get it just about anywhere. which makes much more sense than other alternative fuels. im glad to see vw still utilizing this great short term solution to saving energy.
that’s just the nature of diesel engines… i believe the diesel accord has similar numbers.
