powerful, more efficient and cleaner than ever, the latest generation of its
3.0 TDI engine from Audi will be presented at the 35th International Vienna
Motor Symposium to be held on May 8 and 9, 2014.
Rupert Stadler, Chairman of the Board of Management of AUDI AG says, “TDI
engines are a central part of our technology mix for the mobility of tomorrow.
We have continued to perfect this technology over several decades and believe
there is still potential for increasingy efficiency in the future too.”
new 3.0 TDI substantiates our claim as the leader in diesel technology,” said
Prof. Dr. Ulrich Hackenberg, Member of the Board of Management of Audi AG,
Technical Development, adding “We have led the competition ever since the first
TDI engine 25 years ago, and are constantly extending this lead with new
to a company statement, Audi is offering the exhaust turbocharged V6 in two
versions producing 218 hp and 272 hp. It features a 90-degree
cylinder bank angle and a displacement of 2,967 cc. Peak torque is around
600 Nm depending on the model. Although the new 3.0 TDI is significantly more
powerful than its predecessor, it is – again depending on the model – as much
as 13pc more fuel efficient.
The piston rings and pins in the engine have been optimised for
minimal friction. The crankcase and the newly designed cylinder heads have
separate coolant loops. The updated, innovative thermal management
system improves efficiency even further. The turbocharger and the fully
variable-load oil pump have also been updated. For the first time in automotive
history, a NOx storage catalytic converter has been combined with a diesel
particulate filter and SCR injection in a single assembly.
exhaust gas after-treatment integrated into the engine
package satisfies the most stringent of emissions legislation, including the
Euro 6 standard.
