Volkswagen has just revealed one of the world’s most efficient cars, a Golf BlueMotion concept powered by a new 1.6-liter TDI netting itself nearly 74-mpg.

The vehicle is on display at the 2012 Paris Motor Show and even though the German automaker is calling it a concept, it’s pretty much a production model set to go on sale in Europe starting next summer. It’s being billed as the most fuel-efficient Golf ever built with a fuel consumption of 3.2 liters per 100 km which calculates to about 73.5-mpg in the US.

According to the automaker, the Golf BlueMotion has a theoretical range of 971 miles thanks to its new 1.6-liter TDI with 109-hp and 184 lb-ft of torque. It’s also lighter than its predecessors and adopts several new features like low rolling resistance tires, longer gear ratios, a stop-start system, and battery regeneration mode.

Compared to the standard Golf model, the BlueMotion is also 15 mm lower, sports a roof spoiler, and cooling tweaks to fully optimize the vehicle. The Golf BlueMotion will also be offered in two trim levels: Trendline or Comfortline.

    If my car got 74 miles to the gallon I would only have to buy gas once a month, if that.

    If VW does the same for the BlueMotion as it did for the Tiguan TDI, than don’t hold your breath for it to get to the USA any time soon! Of course i can’t blame it all on VW, we can thank that, so called leader, that we have in office in office.

     Hilarious – you’re blaming VW not bringing a particular model to the US on Obama?!?

    Y’all haters need to get a life.

    Politicians will be complaining about how little in fuel tax they are getting because of cars like this.  They will want to increase vehicle car taxes for cars like this.
