The BlueMotion Technologies are a set of technologies that drastically help in reducing the carbon footprint of the car and enhances the overall fuel-efficiency without compromising on overall drive quality. Currently the technology has been widely used in the Passat sedan. Some of its unique characteristics are:


Auto start-Stop - In an attempt to save fuel and cut down on CO2 emission levels, the innovative start/stop system automatically stops the engine function 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 are applied, Kinetic energy is converted into electricity which is stored in the battery. So every-time the brakes are applied, more power is added to the batteries. So, the more you brake, the further you get to go.


Optimized gear ratios: The Manual and DSG transmissions are tuned for longer ratios, early up-shifts and delayed down-shifts are possible which help with increase in energy efficiency.


Gear shift indicator: The innovative feature recommends optimum time for gear shifts. This function prevents energy loss while shifting gears. The final output is the delivery of an impressive fuel efficiency.
