2009 Jetta BlueTDI Comes to US This Summer, Sports 60 MPG


“VW’s ultra-low emission Jetta BlueTDI will be coming to the US mid-summer, according to an announcement made late last month at the Vienna Motor Symposium. This newer version of the Jetta will meet the strictest emissions standards in the world—BIN5/LEV2—which are enforced by 5 US states: California, Massachusetts, Maine, New York, and Vermont. BIN5/LEV2 standards severely cap nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions (0.05 g/mile), one of the two tailpipe pollutants that have given diesels a bad rap (that and particulate matter).”

I’m delighted to report that, according the Edmunds.com car site:

“Volkswagen of America spokesman Keith Price is now able to ballpark U.S. volume allotments on the ’09 Jetta SportWagen. “We expect to sell 14,000-15,000 Jetta SportWagens in the U.S.,” he said. “About half will be diesel.” He said the gas-powered Jetta SportWagen will go on sale at the end of July, starting at approximately $19,000.

The clean diesel-powered Jetta SportWagen is slated to hit showrooms here at the end of August, starting at approximately $22,000. Price said formal pricing on the SportWagen will be announced later this summer.”

The bold emphasis is mine. So, you can have your car and a full tank, too!

  1. According the Edmunds.com car site:

    “Volkswagen of America spokesman Keith Price is now able to ballpark U.S. volume allotments on the ’09 Jetta SportWagen. “We expect to sell 14,000-15,000 Jetta SportWagens in the U.S.,” he said. “About half will be diesel.” He said the gas-powered Jetta SportWagen will go on sale at the end of July, starting at approximately $19,000.

    The clean diesel-powered Jetta SportWagen is slated to hit showrooms here at the end of August, starting at approximately $22,000. Price said formal pricing on the SportWagen will be announced later this summer.”

  2. Wow, we were talking about the older diesel Jettas the other day and are looking at cars. This is definitely worth looking into. We will need one as soon as our 150,000 mile Sentra dies. I’ll have to see if I can find a photo anywhere.

  3. Loren, thanks for the feedback. You are certainly taking the right approach. The green thing to do is to run a car as far as possible before replacing it: a lot of energy and other resources go into producing each car, and we want to maximize the use of those resources before discarding any car. This will be harder to do for some people as gas prices continue to rise.

    We probably need formula for working out the best time to replace a car based on a current car’s age, cost and efficiency details and the cost and mpg of the new model being considered, along with the current cost of fuel, etc. Best wishes, Jim
