An electric Volkswagen

1. BlueMotion models

Volkswagen offer innovative energy-saving technologies, from the automatic Start/ Stop function to low rolling resistance tyres, which work in synergy with our advanced range of engines and gearboxes. Other features include improved aerodynamics and the recuperation of energy from braking.

Find out more about our energy-saving technologies here

2. Start/Stop Technology

Start/Stop technology is available across the Volkswagen range, including the up!, Passat, Tiguan, Touran and Sharan models. Start/Stop is available on our TSI and TDI engines. Look out for the Start/Stop engines on all our models.

3. Our all-electric vehicles

Volkswagen’s all-electric vehicles, the e-up! and e-Golf offer the same refinements and advanced technology, but with a purely electric drivetrain, offering zero tailpipe emissions (whilst in motion). Find out more about our Electric and Hybrid models here 

4. GTE range

Our high performance Golf GTE and Passat GTE combine electric and petrol technology and produce zero emissions in the all-electric ‘E-mode’^.

^ The ‘combined/ weighted’ fuel consumption/ CO2 figures are calculated from two test results: one when the high voltage battery is fully charged and another when the high voltage battery is discharged. The two results are a weighted average, taking into account mileage range on battery power only, providing a figure in a variety of charge conditions. Extended range achieved by 1.4 TSI petrol engine generating electricity. Fuel consumption and CO2 emissions figures are obtained under standardised test conditions (Directive 93/116/EEC) using a representative model. This allows direct comparison between different models from different manufacturers, but may not represent the actual fuel consumption achieved in ‘real world’ driving conditions. Electricity is mains sourced and emissions are while driving. More information is available at
