The GreenLine is the most fuel efficient variation of the legendary Octavia lineup, ever created by the Czech automobile manufacturer. The car made its official debut at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show that was inaugurated on the 10th of September. The Octavia is the 6th GreenLine model in the midst of seven carlines. Exactly like its cousin Volkswagen Golf BlueMotion, the Octavia GreenLine derives its power from a 1.6 liter TDI diesel block with 108.5 BHP. Mounted with a 6 speed manual transmission, the engineers have incorporated many fuel saving measures and technologies to constrict every drop of diesel.
For people who don’t know, the new Octavia GreenLine’s height has been subordinated. Economical-minded brake energy recuperation and start stop systems have joined efficiency battle. The gear ratios are accurately optimized to get the best of the engine and to reduce fuel consumption as much as possible. Added to that, the GreenLine now runs on low rolling resistance tires. All these additions and features combined together help the car to achieve a mileage of 30.3 kilometers per liter or 100 kilometers per 3.3 liters of diesel. The most surprising developed out of all this is the highly reduced Co2 emissions. The car now emits just 87 grams of carbon-di-oxide per kilometer. The brand has somehow managed to pull off this Houdini act with a diesel engine and not a hybrid which uses a petrol better-half.
If this car is launched in India, it will without a doubt be the most eco-friendly and fuel efficient diesel car that the country has ever seen. Alongside the Octavia GreenLine Skoda also unveiled the newly face-lifted Yeti and the much awaited Skoda Spaceback. The Yeti is available in two models the standard and the Outdoor. Whereas the Spaceback is much better looking that the standard Rapid and it is also available in a 1.6 liter TDI 104 BHP GreenLine variation.
