Audi has announced the new V6 3.0 TDI Clean Diesel engine, which meets EURO 6 regulations. The engine is more powerful, more efficient and cleaner than ever. The engine is currently presented at the 35th International Vienna Motor Symposium.
The engine is available in two variants with 218HP (160 kW) and 272HP (200 kW) and depending on that, it can reach up to 600 Nm (442 lb-ft).
The “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.”, said Prof. Rupert Stadler, Chairman of the Board of Management of AUDI AG.
The new V6 TDI Clean Diesel diesel is packed with numerous high-end features. The piston rings and pins have been optimized 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.
