Forget the Prius, Think VW Polo 'BlueMotion'
Are we creating too much carbon dioxide for the planet's temperature stability, or are we just beating ourselves up about it? If enough people say we are, then it becomes a truism. And a convenient one for those seeking control and the raising of revenue.
Well, it does no harm to be objective. Ultimately, though, two things are undeniable. Oil will run out, so the longer we can make it last, the better. And whether or not we are undergoing CO2-triggered global warming, the likelihood that we may be doing so poses too big a risk to ignore.
Here, then, is the car to salve our consciences. In the real world the new Volkswagen Polo BlueMotion is the most eco-friendly proper car you can buy in the UK today. It has four seats, it's properly safe, you can use it for all normal car duties, and – unlike an electric car – it converts fuel into energy at the point of use rather than simply moving the process elsewhere via an inefficient intermediate storage system.
