The Volkswagen Passat BlueMotion has set a new Guinness World Record for the longest distance travelled by a standard production passenger car on a single tank of fuel. The Volkswagen Passat BlueMotion ran out of fuel after completing 1,526,63 miles. Gavin Conway, for The Sunday Times, drove the Volkswagen Passat BlueMotion during the three-day record-breaking trip, accompanied by a navigator and video crew. Two AA patrolmen followed the entire attempt in their van to witness the journey independently for the Guinness World Records organisation, which accredited the record.
If you are a high mileage driver the Volkswagen Passat BlueMotion is extremely fuel efficient. It has many highlights such as Bluetooth connectivity for the telephone unit, a superior quality stereo, an electronic handbrake and a 2Zone Climatronic air conditioning system. Inside the Volkswagen Passat BlueMotion it is smart and functional; the boot isn’t as big as some rivals but enough to cope with the demands of most families. The seats fold flat easily to give plenty of extended loadbay.
In setting the new world record the Volkswagen Passat BlueMotion travelled a distance equivalent to driving from London to Malaga, without needing to refuel or from New York to Los Angeles with a single stop for diesel.
