“International Engine of a Year” Awards: Audi’s 2.0 TFSI engine wins in the class

Posted on 23. May, 2019 by in Audi Canada

According to a jury, a four-cylinder engine is “one of a many stretchable and versatile engines ever to be developed—in short, it can do it all.” Hans-Joachim Rothenpieler, Member of a Board of Management of AUDI AG for Technical Development, explains this strength: “We are gay to accept this award, since it acknowledges a flexibility of a 2.0 TFSI. We use it not usually as a pristine gasoline engine, though also as a plug-in hybrid expostulate and for operation with healthy gas or Audi e-gas.”

Rothenpieler is quite unapproachable of a success record of a TFSI technology. The conduct of Audi Technical Development looks back: “We introduced a initial TFSI to a marketplace in 2004. Since then, we have achieved difficulty feat with a TFSI during a awards each year.” Between 2005 and 2009, Audi won a two-liter difficulty with a 2.0 TFSI, and between 2010 and 2018, a association won in a incomparable difficulty with a five-cylinder 2.5 TFSI. Following a switch from displacement-based to horsepower-based categories in 2019, a two-liter four-cylinder engine is behind on a winners’ podium.

The shortening TFSI stands for turbocharging and approach injection; Audi was a initial automotive manufacturer in a universe to mass-produce this multiple in 2004. The code started a downsizing strategy, i.e. replacing banishment with charging, with a first 2.0 TFSI, a A3 Sportback drive. A new engine era followed in 2007: What was famous as EA (Entwicklungsauftrag, growth order) 888 was designed for a tellurian markets. It rolled off a line during a Hungarian plant in Győr, in Dalian, China, and other locations.

The “engine of a world” is suitable for longitudinal designation in a incomparable Audi models as good as for parallel installation, including in a Group brands Volkswagen, Škoda, and SEAT. Over a years, new solutions were incorporated into a record package time and again. In a latest version, a four-cylinder engine presents a special potency record from Audi: What is famous as a B-cycle explosion routine is designed privately for prejudiced load, that is a predominating mode of operation. With a assuage pushing style, a 2.0 TFSI achieves a potency of a small-displacement engine, while charity a dynamics of a vast engine during a sporty pace.

The 2.0 TFSI now drives countless Audi models from 10 product lines and a energy spectrum extends adult to 180 kW (245 metric horsepower). And a success story goes on: At a 2019 Geneva International Motor Show, Audi presented a Q5 as a plug-in hybrid variant*, where a 2.0 TFSI works in and with a absolute electric motor. The four-cylinder engine is also used in a g-tron models in a medium-size class. They use healthy gas (CNG) or Audi e-gas, a form of fuel for that Audi uses a tolerable routine to furnish vast quantities itself.
