The Golf TGI BlueMotion is powered by a newly developed natural-gas turbo engine (81 kW / 110 PS). The bi-fuel (designed for natural gas and petrol) 1.4 TSI facilitates impressive driving ranges: in pure CNG operation (with natural gas), the range for the version with a 6-speed manual gearbox is a good 420 km. In this mode, the car’s consumption is 3.5 kg of natural gas per 100 km (equivalent to 94 g/km CO2). When petrol is also used, this adds 940 km to the car’s range (fuel consumption: 5.3 l/100 km).
When the two natural gas underbody tanks (together 15 kg) and the petrol tank (50 liter) are completely full, the Golf TGI BlueMotion has a range of up to 1,360 kilometers. If the Golf TGI BlueMotion is equipped with the optional 7-speed DSG, an even greater driving range is achieved thanks to a combined fuel consumption of 3.4 kg/100 km natural gas or 5.0 l/100 km petrol. As fuel-efficient as it is, the Golf TGI BlueMotion offers an agile driving performance, nonetheless: the Volkswagen accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 10.7 seconds. At 194 km/h, it has reached top speed.
