VW launches 61.4mpg Caddy van

caddy1Volkswagen has sprinkled its BlueMotion magic on the Caddy panel van, helping it return an impressive 61.4mpg.

Available in short-wheelbase form only, the Volkswagen Caddy BlueMotion is powered by a 1.6-litre diesel engine that develops 102hp and 184lb ft of torque.

The Caddy Bluemotion achieves 11.8mpg more (yes, really) than the base-spec Caddy with the same engine, and emits 119g/km CO2.

It uses Volkswagen’s standard BlueMotion technology such as cruise control, hill-hold assist, stop/start and energy recuperation – as well as a number of new features. These include 15” reduced rolling resistance tyres and a lowered ride height – your eco van will actually look sportier than a standard model!

There are a number of other styling changes to the Caddy BlueMotion too, such as the new 15-inch wheel trims, body-coloured side guard strips and a special black and blue coloured seat trim.

OK, maybe not that sporty.

Thanks to its 60-litre fuel tank, Volkswagen claims drivers will be able to travel over 800 miles before filling up – ideal for long distance couriers who don’t want to be stopping regularly.

Customers will be able to order the new Volkswagen Caddy BlueMotion from next month, with prices starting at £14,600.
