Volkswagen Group endeavor to conserve energy and preserve the environment and Greenpeace not convinced

When it comes to Volkswagen vehicles, the company is serious in their endeavor to make them as green as they possibly can. Volkswagen has an integrated strategy which is continually working towards reducing fuel consumption and scaling down auto emissions while concentrating on construction of the most efficient of diesel engines. VW is also in the process of developing new engine systems which use alternative fuels.

Jetta TDI was named 2010 World Green Car, Car of the Year and 2009 Green Car of the Year. The VW BlueMotion brand and Audi A3 TDI are examples of the company’s fortitude in bringing out such environmentally friendly vehicles. In fact Volkswagen Group of America is recognised as the most environmentally friendly car company selling in the USA according to J D Power and Associates.

The company has set a target that by 2018, they will be leaders as global economic and environmental automobile manufacturers. Their goal is to utilize intelligent technologies, increase sales to over 10 million units per annum and capture a major share in growth markets through the projection of their environmentally friendly range of vehicles. At the 2012 Paris Motor Show, Greenpeace France went onto hang banners. In fact, Greenpeace France even got out a spoof VW brochure taht highlighted what they think is wrong with the new Golf 7. VW took the necesarry steps to stop the spoofing.
