One of the world’s most efficient cars fuelled by liquid is set to be launched by German automaker Volkswagen (VW).
The Polo BlueMotion will be trialled by members of pay-as-you-go car club Streetcar in 25 London locations before it rolls into dealerships.
According to VW, the model emits 99 g per km of carbon dioxide and consumes fuel at 74.3 mpg.
"The Polo is a highly efficient, practical and benchmark model and new BlueMotion products will enhance our choice to customers in future. Transport is changing and we recognise customers particularly in cities are seeking new mobility solutions," said Vincent Kinner, head of VW Fleet Services.
For 32 years the VW Polo has been in production, mainly as a hatchback but also as a saloon, coupe and estate vehicle.
It is sold mainly in Europe, although it has been available in most export markets.
