The new grasp has seen Holden discreetness the pattern that has made Commodore the country’s top merchandising car for 14 days straightforward by introducing smartness multimedia engineering, improved fire saving, and the capacitance to run on environmentally favorable bio-ethanol.

VE Serial II brings more multimedia features to Commodore than e’er ahead done an allnew documentary organisation that delivers full-of-the-moon Bluetooth®, USB and iPod desegregation crossways the ambit.

Known as Holden-iQ, the organization is controlled done a apt, user-friendly touchscreen mounted in the core flock – the basis of a reinvigorated inner pattern crossways all models.

The 3.6 liter SIDI V6 ill-used to ability agio Commodore models makes ordinary fire saving gains of more iii per penny by patch all lavishness and operation models powered by Holden’s Gen IV V8 meliorate on mean by more six per centime.

In a major footmark towards creating a cleanser Australian fire landscape, Serial II customers leave likewise be capable to run their cars on bio-ethanol, known in many markets as E85; a commingle of capable 85 per penny ethanol and 15 per penny gasoline.

Bio-ethanol is a renewable fire that can be made from a grasp of wastefulness products from the yield of straw and cabbage and eventide menage scraps. In Australia nowadays use of the fire reduces lifecycle CO2 emissions by capable 40 per centime when compared to gasoline.

A offset for an Australian-made car, Serial II models powered by the 3.0 l SIDI V6 and 6.0 l V8 engines leave get flex-fuel potentiality, allowing them to run on Bio-ethanol, E10, Leadless, Bounty or any combining in ‘tween.

Long Wheelbase

For long-wheelbase opulence vehicles, Serial II testament see Holden offering buyers two well-specified versions of the flagship Whim exemplar.

The launching of an updated WM Serial II grasp in September leave scratch the introduction of the Holden Whim V-Series.

    Flex-Fuel EngineTechnology

    In an Australian outset, all Serial II models powered by Holden’s 3.0 Liter SIDI V6 and 6.0 Liter V8 engines leave get flex-fuel capableness, allowing them to run on bio-ethanol, E10, Leadless, Agiotage or any combining in ‘tween.

    Bio-ethanol is a cleaner-burning vim germ comprising ethanol and gas. Bio-ethanol importantly reduces CO2 emissions and enhances fomite execution.

    In Australia, bio-ethanol is presently produced from rot streams created by the industrial output of straw and bread. None of these resources would differently be exploited for nutrient product.

    To check accessibility of the fire for Serial II vehicles, Holden has entered an alignment with Australia’s leadership fire retailer, Caltex which has attached to marketing the fire below the Bio EFlex brand.

    Caltex volition bear Bio E-Flex useable in 31 serve stations in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide and Canberra by the end of October, increasing to 100 metropolitan and regional locations in 2011.

    Holden is besides investigation the viability of establishing Australia’s outset second-generation ethanol embed, as contribution of a pool including the Square-toed Authorities, Caltex, Veolia, Mitsui and Coskata.

    The embed could be subject of turn materials such as family trumpery and edifice barren into more 200 trillion litres of ethanol a twelvemonth.

    Holden’s leading in alternate fuels in Australia is role of GM’s ball-shaped sustainability and vigor variety scheme. In the US, GM is the starring manufacturer of flex-fuel vehicles with more 3.5 jillion E85-capable GM cars on the route.

    Although fire uptake of bio-ethanol nonparallel II models leave be higher because ethanol contains less zip than gasolene, bio-ethanol’s higher octane valuation way bettor fomite execution. As an example, Holden V8 Supercars made the successful permutation to E85 in 2009.

    For Serial Holden engineers suffer introduced a turn ironware changes to the party’s 3.0-litre SIDI V6 and 6.0-litre Gen IV V8 engines to brand them flex-fuel able.

    Foremost due to lubrication differences exploitation bio-ethanol, stand locomotive ironware has been changed to admit treated consumption, beat and bottom valves.

    A new fire heart whole made of unlike materials to oeuvre with bio-ethanol has likewise been installed on with a flex-fuel detector to find the intoxicant story in the fire demarcation and cater data to the locomotive command whole (ECU).The detecting takes position afterwards every replenish and likewise unendingly during drive.

    Parenthesis from ironware changes, important standardisation oeuvre has too been undertaken to encounter Holden’s flex-fuel necessarily.


    The multi-award-winning VE Commodore made a warm and striking innovation affirmation, characterised by its graeco-roman behind pedal crusade proportions and an acrobatic position emphasized by outstanding cycle arches.
