Volkswagen press release :

The Touran TSI EcoFuel now with an even longer fuel range

Natural gas MPV can now travel up to 670 kilometres on one tank.

In the Touran TSI EcoFuel, travelling 100 kilometres costs around €4.50

Wolfsburg, 5th October 2009 – The multi-variable Touran TSI EcoFuel is a real crowd pleaser and belongs currently to Germany’s best-selling vehicle in its class. The latest version is now available
to buy with an improved fuel range. Thanks to an increased fuel tank capacity and improved efficiency, the vehicle, fitted with a quasimonovalent drive train, will cover up to 670 kilometres.

In natural gas mode, the increased fuel tank will have a range of approximately 520 kilometres and the 11-litre petrol reserve tank will add an extra 150 kilometres. Improvements to consumption and emissions levels have meant that the Touran TSI EcoFuel with a 7-speed DSG gearbox now consumes a mere 4.6 kg/100 km (126 g/km of CO2). Calculated against current prices for natural gas, the Touran TSI EcoFuel can travel 100 kilometres for around €4.50. The natural gas tanks are built into the underbody to save space and now hold a total capacity of 24 kilograms (previously 18 kilograms) in the five-seater version. For the same price, customers can get a seven-seater version of the family vehicle whose fuel range reaches 520 kilometres (370 km for natural gas and 150 km for petrol).
