TDI® clean diesel
Audi is paving the road to energy independence with its TDI (Turbo Direct Injection) clean diesel technology available in Q7 and A3 models. Less carbon emissions. Better fuel efficiency. Startling performance. Audi is proving that diesel is no longer a dirty word.
From the beginning, advanced technology has been at the very heart of the Audi DNA. In practice, this means the relentless pursuit of new and better solutions to the automotive challenges of an ever-changing world. Equally important is our collective responsibility to be acutely aware of our impact on our planet. We use the lessons of past endeavors to provide insights into the future. This is progress, and it’s essential to everything Audi does.
The four shimmering rings that grace every Audi represent over a century of innovation. The Audi emblem symbolizes the amalgamation in 1932 of four previously independent motor-vehicle manufacturers: Audi, DKW, Horch and Wanderer. These companies form the roots of what is today AUDI AG.
Audi of America Inc. and its 270 dealers offer a full line of German-engineered luxury vehicles.
