The technology.

  • Our technological building blocks for a clean environment.
    Our goal: breaking new ground

    Every period in time has its pioneers. The VW Beetle fulfilled the basic need for increased individual mobility. We have always worked on designing new models that are more efficient than their predecessors. That’s because we have always had an ambitious goal: environmentally friendly technologies for all.

    Our foundation: TSI, TSI and DSG

    Pioneering examples of how environmental and economic efficiency can be put into practice have been demonstrated by Volkswagen’s basic technologies for a long time. Our engines, such as the high-torque TSI engine and the powerful TDI unit with a standard-fit diesel particulate filter, represent optimised fuel consumption and fewer pollutants together with pure driving pleasure. The fuel-efficient DSG dual-clutch gearbox makes a further contribution towards conserving resources: it offers the comfort of an automatic gearbox along with the agility, dynamic performance and superior consumption figures of a manual gearbox. Caring for the environment can be fun!

    Our wildcard: Innovations from production to recycling

    In addition to the basic technologies, Volkswagen also offers a wide range of innovations which intelligently protect the environment. We believe that sustainable mobility is about more than just reducing consumption. It means a holistic approach to improving the environmental aspects of our products – from production to recycling. The combined effects of these innovative technologies offer the right solution for every need.
