The base model Caddy achieves 49.6mpg.

Its important to manage the running costs of your business and with fuel price increases the Caddy helps you to reduce your overall vehicle running cost

BlueMotion Technology helps your van go further on less fuel and is now available across most of the models in the range

Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles are infamous for ground breaking innovation and pioneering new technology. At SMG Leasing we know that all commercial vehicle van owners put fuel efficiency near the top of their most wanted list when considering a new or used VW van purchase. 

BlueMotion Technology helps your van go further on less fuel and is now available across most of the models in the range.

BLUEMOTION TECHNOLOGY has a proven track record on fuel economy, evident in a new range of Transporter vans with the most fuel-efficient VW van engines ever. 

The BlueMotion technology add-ons help reduce fuel consumption AND carbon emmissions, delivering up to 41.5mpg and lower CO2 emmissions, so their green friendly too!

Energy recuperation uses lost energy wasted during braking and recuperates the energy to turn the alternator and charge the battery. The output from  a fully charged battery means the engine has to do less work turning the alternator. If the engine is doing less work, it follows that it uses less fuel.  Win, Win. 

Maximum fuel economoy is achieved by combining the benefits of energy recuperation with new start/stop technology to save fuel at traffic lights, plus Cruise Control, plus innovative new tyres with low-rolling resistance.

The 40.4 mpg* 2.0 TDI 114PS Transporter with BlueMotion Technology holds 80 litres in a full tank. That gives us a potential distance of 710 miles**. The distance between Margate and Munich is 671 miles, so the 2.0 TDI 114PS Transporter with BlueMotion Technology can easily complete this journey on one tank.

VW van leasing and contract hire specialists have a lot of new and exciting developments to talk you through, so why not call Hugh or Chris on 0208 045 1230 to find out more.

VW Caddy BlueMotion

Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has boosted its VW Caddy range with a BlueMotion version claimed to be the most fuel efficient of its kind every built by the German manufacturer.

The new van retains the 1.6-litre common rail, direct injection diesel engine, which offers 110bhp and a maximum torque of 250Nm. Compared to the current model, fuel consumption has been reduced by 0.5 litres per 100km and now stands at 61.4 mpg. 

Compared to other models in the Volkswagen Caddy range, that makes it 1.1 litres per 100km more economical. A 60-litre fuel tank in the Caddy BlueMotion provides a theoretical range of more than 1,300km (over 800 miles). 

VW says the vehicle's low fuel consumption is made possible by a combination of aerodynamic and engineering measures – such as engine stop-start, low rolling resistance tyres, recovery of braking energy (battery regeneration), ride height lowered by 27mm and efficient engine control.

BlueMotion Technology improves fuel economy and lowers emissions by using low rolling resistance tyres, Stop/Start and regenerative braking.  This means that although the 180 PS BlueMotion Technology is over 10 per cent more powerful than the previous 163 PS model, it is 3.9 per cent more economical, with a combined fuel economy of 37.2 mpg compared to 35.8 mpg.  Better still, emissions drop by 10 g/km to 199 g/km.

Tested in Dakar, ready for life on site, it's flexible enough to be used day-to-day about town. With three available drive configurations, Volkswagen's Amarok will take you anywhere you need to go. You can choose from Selectable 4MOTION all-wheel drive, Permanent 4MOTION all-wheel drive and Rear-wheel drive (single cab only).

Volkswagen LCV hits Number 2

March 2012 saw a momentous event in the history of light commercial vehicle sales – for the first time ever, Vauxhall lost its number two slot in the sales chart, to be replaced by German rival Volkswagen.

Vauxhall has been firmly ensconced in its runner-up slot behind Ford since records began. But looking at Volkswagen’s sales strategy in the past five years, it’s easy to see how this meteoric rise in sales came about.

In 2007, Volkswagen enjoyed a 9% share of the UK LCV market but this figure rose to 13.2% in 2011. VW Caddy’s share rose from 9.5% to 21% in that period while Transporter rose from 15.5% to 18.1% and Crafter was up from 4.9% to 5.2%.

California. Try before you buy.

Our very own Laine Watts, SMG Brand Manager, is one of the leading experts in the UK on the new VW California. He knows how important it is for prospective customers to enjoy a thorough test drive of a California before they make a decision to invest. Therefore we have devised a way to meet this need by teaming up with a local camper van hire company.

There is an opportunity for anyone interested in buying a California to hire one for a weekend and if you then decide to buy one, the cost of the weekend hire will be refunded.

Naturally, certain terms and conditions of hire agreements will apply. Why not get full details from Laine on 0843 290 2000
