Audi will introduce four new TDI clean diesel models to the U.S.

Audi of America has announced the introduction of the new TDI clean diesel engine on its A8, A7, A6 and Q5 models that will debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

With these four new models, Audi will have for the first time a full lineup of TDI clean diesel vehicles in the U.S., alongside the updated Q7 model. According to the German carmaker, each TDI model delivers up to 30 percent better fuel economy and 30 percent lower carbon dioxide emissions than gasoline engines.

As a consequence, Audi’s TDI models offer longer driving ranges and fewer trips to the fuel pump. On all four models (plus the updated Q7), the 3.0-liter V6 diesel engine develops 240 horsepower and 406 lb.-ft. (550 Nm) of torque. The unit helps the A8 sprint from 0 to 60 mph (0-98 km/h) in 6.4 seconds and average 24 mpg (9.8 liters/100 km) in the city and 36 mpg (6.54 l/100 km) on the highway. Audi didn’t offer performance and fuel economy figures for the other TDI models.

“Owners of Audi TDI engines have helped save over 4 million gallons of gasoline, or the equivalent of more than 240,000 barrels of foreign oil, since the introduction of Audi TDI to the U.S. in 2009. And, TDI technology delivers better fuel efficiency without sacrificing performance,” said Scott Keogh, President, Audi of America.
