As if its new Polo wasn't already extremely efficient, Volkswagen is displaying a concept BlueMotion variant of the small hatchback. Volkswagen heralds the Polo BlueMotion as "the most fuel-efficient five seater in the world" and touts a hybrid-killing 71 mpg.

Likelihood of production, exclaims Volkswagen, is "extremely high." The only thing delaying a production version is final development of the brand new 1.2-liter TDI turbodiesel that powers the concept.

Development Chief Dr. Ulrich Hackenberg is leading development of the engine and pushing for a February 2010 start of production. "Meeting this schedule will be extremely demanding," he said, "yet the engine and other systems of the Polo BlueMotion are already operating with such promising performance that we are on course to meet our goal."

    I like the simplicity of Diesels so much more over Hybrids!
