Four clever ways to save

BlueMotion Technology, consisting of cruise control, low rolling resistance tyres, regenerative braking and Start/Stop, is available on most models across the Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles range. See below how these four key elements help save fuel and money for your business.

Cruise control

By driving at a constant speed, cruise control saves fuel which would normally be wasted by fluctuations in speed. This lowers CO2 emissions with the benefit of increasing driver comfort.

Low rolling resistance tyres

These don’t need to work as hard to get your van moving (and keep it rolling) which is especially useful when shifting heavy loads. This reduces engine work, saves fuel and lowers CO2 emissions.

Regenerative braking

When you brake, the energy recuperation system uses momentum to turn the alternator and charge the battery. A well charged battery results in the engine doing less work, which in-turn saves fuel and lowers CO2 emissions.

Start/Stop

Allows you to save fuel by automatically turning the engine off when you stop and engage neutral. As soon as it’s time to move, the engine starts up again. A simple, but highly effective system.
