BlueMotion technology consists of four key elements, which when added together, contribute to significant improvements in fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. As a business, this not only benefits your pocket, but also demonstrates your concern for the environment!
The Caddy BlueMotion not only incorporates Volkswagen's tried and tested BlueMotion technology, but also a host of weight-saving and aerodynamic improvements, such as fuel-saving low rolling assist tyres and a lowered ride height.
Four Key Elements
1. Cruise control - By driving at a constant speed, cruise control saves fuel which would normally be wasted by fluctuations in speed. This lowers CO 2 emissions with the benefit of increasing driver comfort.
2. 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 CO 2 emissions..
3. 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 CO 2 emissions.
4. 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.
