Audi TDI Group - 2012 LA Show

Audi will introduce four new TDI clean diesel models for the Audi A8, A7, A6 and Q5 at the Los Angeles Auto Show, joining an updated Q7 model.

Each TDI vehicle is said to deliver up to 30% better fuel economy and 30% lower carbon dioxide emissions than comparable gasoline engines, resulting in longer range and fewer trips to the fuel pump.

By having more density than gasoline, diesel packs more energy content in the same amount of fuel, which helps the amount of fuel consumed when that energy is released during the combustion cycle.

" And, TDI technology delivers better fuel efficiency without sacrificing performance," said Scott Keogh, President, Audi of America.

In order to fuel the conversation surrounding the benefits of TDI technology in the U.S., Audi will use the hashtag, #FuelForThought and invite fans to join the conversation through a social experience at the display and online.
