German carmaker, Volkswagen, on Wednesday said it would launch the all-new edition of Passat in India with BlueMotion technologies by March this year.

“We will launch the all new edition of Passat in the Indian market by March 2011. It will be launched at the same time as the ‘Think Blue’ campaign is introduced in the country,” Volkswagen Group Sales India’s Director, Neeraj Garg, told reporters.

“The all new Volkswagen Passat will come to India with BlueMotion features like start stop, brake energy recuperation, DSG duel clutch gear box, gear shift indicator and an extremely fuel efficient engine,” he said.

The company will introduce its ‘Think Blue’ campaign in the country at the end of the first quarter this year, he said. Garg, however, did not reveal the price of the all new Passat.

Volkswagen intends to adopt ‘Think Blue’ as a consistent approach that will be reflected in the brand’s actions and communication.

“Building on one of the best-known environmental labels in the automobile industry, ‘BlueMotion’, Volkswagen is sending out a new signal for sustainable mobility,” he said.
