Volkswagen says it will offer new mobility options to drivers who opt to use its diesel vehicles.

    The automaker says the new technology is designed to provide better fuel economy and fuel efficiency than the diesel versions, which are the most common vehicle on the road today.

    The new diesel vehicles have been on the market for about a year, but are more expensive than their diesel counterparts, which can go for as much as $15,000 more.

    Volkswagen said Tuesday that it is offering new vehicles with a new generation of electric drivetrain, which will combine a new type of electric motor with a combustion engine.

    The automaker also says it is launching a range of self-driving vehicles, including a new electric version of its Tiguan SUV.

    It will also be offering an all-electric car called the e-Golf in the U.S. Volkswagen said that it expects to make an initial roll-out of the new electric Tiguan in the second half of this year.
