60 MPG VW Jetta reaches US, $22,000 estimated base price
In case the first title was too long for the amazing gas mileage to be obvious, I want to call further attention to this recent article on the new VW TurboDiesel Jetta, coming to the US in 2009, and capable of meeting all of the toughest state emissions tests. I’m not a great fan of carbon-based fuels these days, but 60 Miles per Gallon merits mentioning and praise in any context.
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!
