Volkswagen eco up! tops VCD Environmental Car List

Volkswagen’s natural gas-powered eco up! has been named overall winner in the VCD Environmental Car List compiled by the Car Environment Transport Club Germany. Each car was evaluated on its CO2 emissions, fuel consumption and noise level.

The up!’s CNG 1.0 litre three-cylinder engine develops 50 kW (67 hp) and 90 Nm (66 lb/ft) of torque, and needs just 2.9 kg of natural gas every 100 kilometres, while generating a mere 79 g/km of CO2. Top speed is a respectable 168 km/h (104 mph), but the 0-100 km/h time of 15.8 seconds is slightly less impressive.
