Default VW aims at 100mpg Golf

Quote:
Volkswagen is set to launch a 100mpg Golf in 2020, in time to meet super-stringent EU fuel economy regulations. Senior VW sources told Autocar that the greenest Golf ó likely to be the blue-e-motion ó is expected to have an average CO2 rating of just 75g/km.

Planned EU regulations require the average fuel economy across a makerís entire range to average just 95g/km by 2020, which is forcing car makers into considering radical methods to drive down consumption.
Launched as part of the Mk8 Golf line-up, the super-frugal car will feature much of the technology featured in the new XL1. But itís expected to get a next-generation version of the two-cylinder hybrid powertrain.

Full story: VW to launch 95mpg UP
A combination of improved combustion technology and new materials should allow the engine to have a higher power density and still use slightly less fuel.

However, VW sources say the super-frugal Golf will also have to see significant friction reduction and aerodynamic improvement as well as a big weight loss. Carbon-reinforced plastics could be used for the bonnet and roof panels, for example, and heavy sound deadening is likely to be replaced by a sound cancellation system working through the carís audio.

VW could make a car that delivers 150mpg and I'd still never own one.

I'm enjoying an average of 43mpg in my new VW TDI. Not that that's really relevant. Just trying to preempt some of the inevitable VW hate.
