Volkswagen Eco Up! Stars in "Think Blue" Commercial [Video]
"Think Blue" is like their think tank for fuel efficiency, at the same time serving as a motto for the cleanest VWs on sale. Our favorite is not the ultra-efficient Golf or Polo, it's this car, the Eco Up!, the most efficient natural gas car in Germany and also among the cheapest on sale in Europe.
The car uses jut 2.9 kg of CNG (Compressed Natural Gas) every 100 covered kilometers. With CNG prices in Germany, that would equate to around €3/100 km. It can also travel for up to 600 km on a single tank. It's classes as an A+ efficiency car and only emits 79 grams of CO2 per kilometer.
And even though it's designed in the shape of a box, we think it's kind of cute, and certainly more practical than a three-door Fiat 500.
