Activated carbon filter now standard in all VW models

LinkedIn +

Volkswagen has announced that all new models will now be fitted with an activated carbon filter to help people suffering from allergies.

The technology has been available for a long time as part of the Air Care Climatronic option, which filters out pollen, bacteria, fungal spores and particulates before they make their way through the ventilation system into the interior.

Furthermore, the filter technology with activated carbon layer also converts harmful gases like nitrogen dioxide, leaving the interior air cleaner and less disturbing.

Volkswagen already offers air conditioning systems for a host of models. For example, the Air Care Climatronic air purification system uses an air quality sensor that is more effective than a classic filter, due to the use of activated carbon with an allergen layer. This disables even the tiniest allergens.

From now on, every Volkswagen will be standard-equipped with the activated carbon filter with allergen function. The majority of older cars can also be retrofitted with the new activated carbon filter with allergen layer.
