New VW Golf Plus Crossover BiFuel Goes on Sale in Europe

Volkswagen is extending the model range of its recently facelifted Golf Plus with an LPG-capable version called Golf Plus BiFuel. The compact crossover that can run either on petrol or LPG at the flick of a switch is equipped with a 1.6-liter, four-cylinder engine producing 98HP. The German automaker said that the car needs an average of 9.8 liters of LPG per 100km (159 g/km CO2) while when it uses gasoline fuel, the Golf Plus BiFuel consumes 7.5 liters of Super for every 100km (179 g/km CO2).

The Golf Plus BiFuel features a 55-litre petrol tank and a 43-liter LPG tank, the latter built into the spare wheel well to save space. The LPG tank provides a range of about 440 kilometers while the two tanks offer a combined range of more than 1,100 kilometers or about 685 miles.

The German firm notes that the factory-installed LPG solution for the Golf Plus BiFuel comes with a full warranty for the entire vehicle, LPG components included. The LPG-capable Golf Plus is available for order in the Trendline and Comfortline versions with prices in Germany starting from €22,460.
