Polo and Golf Bluemotion Provide Congestion Charge-free Transportation

Volkswagen’s UK arm is informing us that the Polo BlueMotion and Golf blueMotion models are not only exempt from road tax but, starting this week, also from the London Congestion Charge.

The new rules of the Congestion Charge state that vehicles emitting less than 100 grams of CO2 per km no longer have to pay the GBP10 daily charge to enter the area.

The Polo Bluemotion (91 g/km) and Golf Bluemotion (99 g/km) both qualify for this, allowing owners to save an important amount of money every year.

Beyond the confines of London the Polo and Golf BlueMotion are capable of demonstrating incredible efficiency and low running costs while retaining all the virtues of comfort, quality and refinement you would expect from a Volkswagen. The Golf BlueMotion, for example, can travel over 899 miles on a single tank of diesel yet is driven, maintained and serviced like any conventional Golf,” stated the press release.

The Polo and Golf BlueMotion models come with a multitude of standard features, including alloy wheels, air conditioning, a CD/stereo system, electric windows, Hydraulic Brake Assist and ABS as well as driver, passenger, side and curtain airbags and, on the Golf, as well as a knee airbag.

All BlueMotion variants feature a series of subtle yet effective modifications aimed at maximising efficiency.  These take the form of optimised aerodynamics, low rolling resistance tyres, Start/Stop, battery regeneration and longer gearing.  The result is less strain is put on the common rail diesel engine, which in turn leads to lower emissions and greater economy,” explained the press release.
