A phrase associated with the Volkswagen brand is “BlueMotion” or also known as “Green Drive”. So what is it, how does it work in the world’s largest car companies in almost all of its designs?
Luxury car technology
The name BlueMotion is named after the Volkswagen brand identity color: “Blue” – the blue color associated with the word “Motion” means driving, indicating the movement of the engine operating and moving vehicles. .
BlueMotion includes a range of technologies equipped with the goal of reducing fuel consumption. Most of Volkswagen’s cars are equipped with this technology package, but depending on climate characteristics and emission standards of each country, these equipment is changed accordingly. There are 4 standard equipment commonly found on Volkswagen BlueMotion models.
The first is the automatic start / stop system, it will detect when the car stops and automatically turn off the engine, then when the throttle is started, the engine will automatically turn back on. This not only saves fuel, but also helps minimize idle costs in traffic and makes the car quieter when there is no engine sound during a red stop.
Next is the brake energy regeneration system. This equipment is less advanced than the Hybrid cars (vehicles using two engines, usually an electric motor with a gasoline or oil engine), but at a lower cost and much more suitable. The generator that generates alternating current will increase the power during braking and cut down when accelerating to recover lost energy and reduce stress on the engine. This means that the heat generated from kinetic energy will be reused when the friction is applied to the brakes, resulting in less fuel loss.
Low rolling resistance tires are also on this list. This type of tire minimizes friction between the rubber layer of the tire and the road surface, reducing the energy needed to propel the vehicle at the start of movement and in continuous motion. This means that the engine needs time to pull and is stable. The hardest part of this tire that Volkswagen has overcome is the study of low rolling resistance tires with traction suitable for the modern highway system.
Finally, the models with BlueMotion technology will have aerodynamic improvements such as the smaller dashboard space, lower vehicle height and the ribs around the car to ensure smooth, reduced air movement. wind resistance. This not only helps reduce fuel consumption but also reduces wind noise level in the vehicle, improving soundproofing.
For example, in the fall of 2010 in Europe, a Passat BlueMotion set a record in the Guinness Book of World Records. With just one fuel tank, this Passat BM has traveled 1,526.63 miles (2,443 km), equivalent to 74.8 miles per 1 gallon of fuel (3.14 liters / 100 km). Passat BM has a fuel tank capacity of 77.25 liters. This means it can travel from New York to Los Angeles with just two fuel tanks.
As a result, recently in mid-2019, the 30 millionth VW Passat was shipped at Volkswagen’s factory in Emden, thereby setting a new record as well as becoming the best-selling product in the luxury car segment. D.
