Volkswagen Passat BlueMotion Concept Launch Date – Volkswagen Fuel Efficient Concept Sedan Car Automobile News
A buzz about Volkswagen Passat BlueMotion Concept Launch Date has already grown high after the Volkswagen made it’s debut in the 2014 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. This is a fuel efficient concept Sedan car which was shown by the German Automaker in 2014 Auto Show. Volkswagen is planning to make a mass production of Volkswagen Passat BlueMotion for the US and European market. Yet there is no official news comes about when the Volkswagen Passat BlueMotion will go into production and hence no news when it will be available in the market. But authenticate sources reveal that it will be available soon. Sources says that German Car maker will set the Volkswagen Passat BlueMotion Concept Launch Date in 2015 and most probably it will be made available in the dealers places in 1st or 2nd quarter of 2015 in the US and European market. Anyhow there is also a possibilities that Volkswagen may launch the passat BlueMotion concept in late 2014 but the chances are a bit less as it’s production is yet to started.
This BlueMotion Concept is a Fuel efficient gasoline car concept of Volkswagen’s Sedan Car Passat. It is estimated that the BlueMotion Concept Passat will have a fuel efficiency of 42 Miles Per Gallon on highway which is 17.85 KM/ltr which is a very good for gasoline powered engine i.e. Petrol engine. Now question might arise over here that many cars available in the market with the 42MPG of fuel efficiency than why Volkswagen Passat BlueMotion Concept car is given too much of importance and why it is said o be a first of it’s kind and a newer innovation of the Volkswagen.
Let’s understand this. The very first reason is that this is a fuel-efficiency of a Gas Car(i.e. Petrol Car) and not a Hybrid car and also not a diesel car.To achieve such fuel efficiency for the petrol car is a good thing. Also, Passat is a Sedan Car and much larger vehicle and also it is having a lot of weight to move along with the Car. This generally affects the fuel efficiency of the vehicle and lowers down the fuel efficiency. In the BlueMotion Concept, along with all these odds for fuel efficiency, it has gained very good fuel efficiency of 42 MPG which is a very good forward step taken by Volkswagen. Also let’s understand the driving forces for new vehicle development. The main two driving forces prevailling in the market for new Vehicle Development are Fuel Efficiency and the capacity(Sometimes the efficiency is simply replaced by Power or CC (Engine Displacement)). By general rule, if the Power or CC increases the Fuel Efficiency decreases and vice-versa. Here in the Volkswagen Passat BlueMotion Concept, Volkswagen broke this rule and increase the Fuel efficiency without affecting the Power or displacement of Passat.
The BlueMotion Concept Sedan Car Passat is powered by 1.4L Turbo-charged Petrol engine with four-cylinders with cylinder deactivation (at least for the US, A first for a four-cylinder) with direct fuel injection which goes for Fuel Saving and a unmatchable mode for the DCT (Dual Clutch Transmission), which enables the Volkswagen Passat to fully disengage the clutch, and thereby enable the BlueMotion Concept Passat to have the least amount of mechanical drag. The Car will have 150 HP of Power and 184 pounds-feet of torque and also a VolksWagen’s Active Cylinder Management System which was earlierly employed in the European Polo and Golf Model.
Also, the Concept has eye-catching designing and look. The Passat BlueMotion Concept car will have Reef blue metallic paint and in the interior, it will have Two-tone leather seats with blue dividing lines between dark and lighter surfaces. In litteral sense, Volkswagen has denied the Myth that the Fuel efficient cars are with less power and routine look. At this time, Volkswagen has put a mark that Fuel Efficient cars can also be Powerful and with Exciting look.
Now if we look at the Features and Specifications of the Volkswagen Passat BlueMotion Concep Sedan car, it will be almost similar to existing Passat Diesel Car with TDI engine. It is also having the similar fuel efficiency with the similar power. So, why VW will invest into a Petrol Car with the similar specifications. The reason might be they have read and understood the US market and in US, people in-average avoid the Diesel car and prefer the Petrol car over the diesel one. Many reasons might be there for this preference from the consumer but because of this there is a segment in the market which might be tapped and company can generate inward cashflow. Anyhow a time to go and we have to see what happens. Till than keep reading.
