Volkswagen Golf Plus BiFuel Launched

And here we go again... Volkswagen has just released a new special version of the Golf Plus which runs on LPG and is especially aimed at cutting CO2 emissions and fuel consumption. The German manufacturer says the LPG model reduces emissions by as much as 10 percent and brings consumers a fuel saving of 6.10 euros per 100 kilometers.

Specifically, the 1.6-liter, four-cylinder engine available on the Golf Plus and generating 98 horsepower eats around 9.8 liters of LPG every 100 kilometers, with emissions standing at 159 g of CO2 per kilometer. Switching to gasoline mode improves the aforementioned figures even more, with fuel consumption reduced to 7.5 l/100 km. However, emissions are a bit higher, with Volkswagen claiming the car releases 179 g of CO2 per km while running on petrol.

The gasoline tank - 55 liters - and the LPG one - 43 liters - provide an extended range of more than 1,100 kilometers, with the LPG tank alone allowing the car to run for almost 440 kilometers.

"The factory-installed solution for the new Golf Plus BiFuel is considerably more advantageous than an LPG conversion: to name just a couple of benefits, the vehicle has been subjected to extensive endurance testing and undergone crash testing with the LPG tank, making it extremely safe. Customers receive a full warranty for the entire vehicle, LPG components included," Volkswagen explained in a release.

The LPG version of Volkswagen Golf Plus will be offered in two trim levels, Trendline and Comfortline. Pricing starts at 22,460 euros but could be increased by several thousands by adding the available feature packages and options.
