Spied: VW Passat Bluemotion before its official launch
Kaustubh Shinde, They say sooner or later your passion finds you. Sometime in late 2009, I started writing for IAB and ever since then it has been a roller coaster ride for me. An amazing experience that has taught me a lot, taken me to new places, driven some great cars and met some amazing people. When you don't find me on IAB (very rarely), you will find me either at a coffee shop or an eatery or at the nearest gadget store. Hope you enjoy IAB as much as we do!
Days before its official launch on the 29th of March in Mumbai, the new Passat Bluemotion has been spied by Vikram Jayanath, a member NDTV Car and Bike Show Facebook page.
The new Passat is a cosmetic revamp of the older generation car featuring the same design language as displayed on the new Jetta, Touareg and our own VW Polo. The car features VW’s trademark ‘BlueMotion’ technology which leading to higher fuel efficiency and lower emission.
The older Passat has not been a very a successful contender in the D Segment market and has always been dominated by the Skoda Superb and Honda Accord. The new Passat is expected to be very price competitive and will play the ‘kind to the environment’ card to attract the buyers. VW is also planning to launch a ‘Think Blue’ campaign to compliment the launch of the Passat.
We will surely get you all the action from the launch on the 29th of this month so stay tuned!
