Audi of America has recently announced that they will be debuting four new TDI clean diesel models to the US market. Set to be revealed this week at the Lost Angeles’s Auto Show, these four models will join the Audi Q7 clean diesel model to create the first full lineup of TDI clean diesel vehicles in the United States.
TDI engine technology in these new Audi vehicles was developed to increase fuel efficiency while decreasing emissions and without sacrificing on performance. Each TDI vehicle delivers up to 30 percent better fuel economy while lowering carbon dioxide emissions 30 percent more than gasoline engines. Diesel fuel has its own benefits. Since diesel is denser than gasoline it packs more energy content in the same amount of fuel. This leads to helping maximize the miles per gallon Audi vehicles can travel since the energy is released during a more powerful combustion cycle.
“Owners of Audi TDI engines have helped save over 4 million gallons of gasoline,” explained Scott Keogh, President of Audi America. “That is the equivalent of more than 240,000 barrels of foreign oil since the introduction of Audi TDI to the U.S. in 2009.”
The new TDI diesel models include the Audi A7, A6, and Q5, which will be available in Fall 2013. The fourth model, the Audi A8 TDI, will be available in Spring 2013. Watch for the arrival of these new Audis at South Hills Audi, www.southhillsaudi.com.
