Fuel Strategy

As well as continuously developing motor vehicle and engine technology for the long-term maintenance of individual mobility, Volkswagen is also increasingly conducting research in the area of alternative fuels. The medium-term goal is to replace the use of fossil energy resources with renewable sources. To that end, in partnership with the mineral oil industry Volkswagen is already conducting practical testing of two fuels - SunFuel and SynFuel - that offer the prospect of providing an answer to the problem in the medium term. As a long-term project, Volkswagen is working on hydrogen drive by means of a fuel cell. Initial prototypes such as the Touran HyMotion have already demonstrated their capability on several occasions.
