Clean Diesel TDI

TDI: Clean Diesel for Everyone

Audi and Volkswagen pioneered TDI® clean diesel engines and today, the Volkswagen Group of America is the market leader in clean diesel. In 2013, Audi and Volkswagen sold more than 100,000 clean diesel cars in the United States. Clean diesel delivers more torque, lower fuel consumption and reduces CO2 emissions compared with equivalent gasoline engines. Volkswagen’s newest and most fuel-efficient TDI Clean Diesel engine will power the 2015 Golf, Beetle, Passat and Jetta starting in the second half of 2014.

Audi has been at the forefront of clean diesel since the introduction of Audi TDI technology in 2009. Since then, nearly 40,000 Audi TDI vehicles have been sold in the United States, delivering an average of 30 percent better fuel economy and range than gasoline. Continuing our commitment to clean diesel technology and innovative solutions that improve efficiency and driving dynamics, Audi has made a dramatic expansion of TDI technology in the United States for the 2014 model year. Available TDI models include the A6, A7, A8 L, Q5 and Q7, as well as the introduction of the A3 TDI sedan.
