Here’s something to look forward to, a diesel hybrid. VW has a concept car that is a Golf TDI diesel/electric hybrid. This new car is suppose to get 69 mpg’s! Wow! And that’s without implementing hypermiling techniques. (I’ll explain hypermiling tomorrow.) The TDI engine is a very efficient and very clean diesel that VW has been using for a couple years. The TDI is offered in the Jetta (30/41 mpg), Jetta SportWagen (same) and the Touareg 2 TDI (25 highway mpg).
