The environmentally-friendly Polo BlueMotion is on duty at the ECHO award ceremony. When the German music awards are presented in Berlin on March 25, 2007 artists including international top stars such as Simply Red will drive up to the red carpet in the extremely low-emission version of the Polo. Volkswagen is thus making a clear gesture in support of environmental protection.
Volkswagen is providing 50 Polo BlueMotion for the shuttle service at the ECHO award ceremony. The vehicles are an acknowledged pioneer in environmental compatibility and economy. With CO2 emissions of only 102 g/km, the Polo BlueMotion sets a new standard. Thanks to its low consumption of only 3.9 liters of diesel per 100 kilometers and a power output of 59kW/80hp, this particular Polo model has become a bestseller.
According to Stephan Grühsem, Head of Communications at Volkswagen AG: "We are confident that national and international guests at the ECHO award ceremony will welcome the opportunity to experience the advantages of the Polo BlueMotion – dynamics, low average fuel consumption and low emissions."
Gerd Gebhardt, Executive Producer of ECHO 2007, added: "We are 100% behind this exemplary action. After all, the future belongs to economical and environmentally-friendly cars!"
The Sound Foundation Polo "First Act" celebrates its world premiere at the ECHO awards. This exclusive model from the house of "Volkswagen Individual" captures its audience with the same economical consumption and unadulterated driving pleasure as the bestselling Polo BlueMotion. Guitarists will be delighted by a 70 watt amplifier fitted under the glove compartment.
