In an interview with Britain?s evo magazine during the Geneva Motor Show, Volkswagen?s R&D head honcho Dr Ulrich Hackenburg revealed that the German giant is looking at the feasibility of launching a sports range that follows the company?s BlueMotion philosophy.
With the strong showing of Volkswagen?s BlueMotion range at Geneva, it?s clear that a large part of the company?s plans for the future revolve around fuel-efficient motoring.
Dr Hackenburg believes though that Volkswagen can ?make a connection between fun, performance and low consumption.?
If you?re inclined to doubt the good doctor?s words, a look back at the recent Concept Bluesport will change your mind quickly enough ? maybe even as quick as the diesel-powered Concept BlueSport?s 6.6 second sprint to 100km/h.
Volkswagen is right now studying the viability of the BlueSport as a production model, and if we do see it ? likely around late 2011 ? it might just be one of a few models sold under the BlueSport brand.
