Beyond an experience of sheer luxury, the Passat also lets you experience an efficient, eco-friendly approach to mobility.
The Passat incorporates BlueMotion Technologies. This refers to a set of technologies that drastically reduces the carbon footprint of the car and enhances fuel-efficiency, while maintaining the fun of driving.
BlueMotion Technologies in the Passat.
Optimized gear ratios:The Manual and DSG transmissions are optimized for longer ratios, early upshifts and delayed downshifts for increased energy efficiency. Another example of how smart technology in the Passat helps you drive smarter.
Auto start-stop:The innovative start/stop system automatically stops* the engine every time you come to a standstill, it helps you save precious fuel and cut CO2 emissions.
Brake energy recuperation:Every time the car brakes, kinetic energy is converted into electricity and stored in the battery. Which means, just the act of braking recharges the battery. Now, the more you brake, the further you can go.
Gear shift indicator:This feature in the Passat prevents energy loss while shifting gears. It does this by recommending the optimum time for you to shift a gear. The result is a most satisfying fuel efficiency.
