Fuel-efficient micro-hybrid for the Golf New 130 PS petrol engine is as efficient as a diesel

  • At times it simply makes sense to shut down: fuel consumption is enhanced by temporary cylinder deactivation and complete engine shut-off
  • Variable turbine: 1.5 TSI ACT BlueMotion uses turbocharger technology from high-performance sports cars

Progress makes the impossible possible. This is exemplified by a petrol engine like no other before it: a petrol engine that offers diesel-like fuel economy but is significantly cheaper to buy. A petrol engine that during the journey occasionally simply switches off two of its four cylinders or even takes a complete break. A petrol engine that combines supreme torque with low emissions. Volkswagen has developed such an engine: the new 1.5 TSI ACT BlueMotion. It has an output of 96 kW / 130 PS and is currently already powering the Golf and Golf Variant. In the future, the efficient 1.5 TSI ACT BlueMotion will also be available for other Volkswagen models.
