•Most fuel-efficient Caddy ever consumes just 4.5 litres per 100 km
•Available as a passenger van or as a panel van
•Premiere at the IAA in Frankfurt

Hannover, 20 August 2013 – The Caddy from Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles is available in different versions and with different engines – a significant reason for its success. Now, a very fuel-efficient version is being added: the new Caddy BlueMotion is the most fuel-efficient Caddy ever with a low fuel consumption of 4.5 litres per 100 km.

The new Caddy BlueMotion has the familiar 1.6-litre TDI with common rail direct injection and 75 kW / 102 PS which has a maximum torque of 250 Newton metres. Compared to the already very fuel-efficient Caddy 1.6-litre TDI with BlueMotion technology, fuel consumption was further reduced by 0.5 litres per 100 km. Compared to the Caddy without fuel-saving technology, it is a full 1.1 litres per 100 km better. As a result, the commercial version of the versatile urban delivery vehicle consumes just 4.5 litres per 100 km, which equates to 117 g CO2 per km. Values for the passenger version are just slightly higher at 4.6 litres and 119 g CO2/km. The driving range of the Caddy BlueMotion, which has a fuel tank capacity of 60 litres, is over 1,300 km.

These low fuel consumption values were made possible by a combination of aerodynamic and engineering measures such as an engine stop-start function, low rolling resistance tyres, recovery of braking energy (battery regeneration), ride height lowered 27 mm and efficient engine control.
The new Caddy BlueMotion with a short wheelbase is available in four equipment versions: as a panel van and kombi as well as in the passenger versions Startline and Trendline.

On its exterior, the Caddy BlueMotion can be made out by a badge at the rear, its lower ride height, special full wheel covers and painted side guard strips. The Caddy BM is also distinguished by equipment features such as standard hill hold assist, cruise control system, exclusive seat upholstery and air nozzles in high-gloss black (passenger version).

Prices for the new Caddy BlueMotion start at 17,720 euros (net) for the panel van and 21,759.15 euros (incl. VAT) for the base passenger version (Startline BlueMotion).
