Power and efficiency: Audi presents new 3.0 TDI during Vienna Motor Symposium

Posted on 09. May, 2014 by in Audi Canada

As Prof. Rupert Stadler, Chairman of a Board of Management of AUDI AG, explains: “TDI engines are a executive partial of a record brew for a mobility of tomorrow. We have continued to ideal this record over several decades and trust there is still intensity for increasingy potency in a destiny too.”

“The new 3.0 TDI substantiates a explain as a personality in diesel technology,” pronounced Prof. Dr. Ulrich Hackenberg, Member of a Board of Management of AUDI AG, Technical Development. “We have led a foe ever given a initial TDI engine 25 years ago, and are constantly fluctuating this lead with new ideas.”

Audi offers a empty turbocharged V6 in dual versions producing 160 kW (218 hp) and 200 kW (272 hp). It facilities a 90‑degree cylinder bank angle and a banishment of 2,967 cc. Peak torque is as many as 600 Nm (442.5 lb-ft) depending on a model. Although a new 3.0 TDI is significantly some-more absolute than a predecessor, it is – again depending on a indication – as many as 13 percent some-more fuel efficient.

The new V6 diesel is packaged with countless high‑end features. The piston rings and pins have been optimized for minimal friction. The crankcase and a newly designed cylinder heads have apart coolant loops. The updated, innovative thermal government complement improves potency even further. The turbocharger and a entirely variable‑load oil siphon have also been updated. For a initial time in automotive history, a NOx storage catalytic converter has been total with a diesel particulate filter and SCR injection in a singular assembly.

The empty gas after‑treatment integrated into a engine package satisfies a many difficult of emissions legislation, including a Euro 6 standard. It also reduces CO2 emissions by an normal of 15 grams (24.1 g/mi). This alleviation earns a 3.0 TDI a “clean diesel” suffix.

The Audi lineup offers a extended choice of diesel engines with four, 6 and eight cylinders. It starts with a 1.6 TDI, includes a 2.0 TDI and 3.0 TDI, and tops out with a 4.2 TDI producing 283 kW (385 hp) and 850 Nm (626.9 lb‑ft) of torque in a Audi A8 [7.4 l/100 km (31.8 US mpg), 194 g CO2 per km (312.2 g/mi)]. All of these engines mix plenty energy with groundbreaking efficiency, quite in a 13 ultra models now available. The Audi A4 1.6 TDI ultra, for example, consumes on normal only 3.2 liters of fuel per 100 kilometres (73.5 US mpg) [85 grams CO2 per km (136.8 g/mi)]. These same total for a A4 2.0 TDI ultra are 4.0 liters per 100 kilometres (58.8 US mpg) [104 grams CO2 per km (167.4 g/mi)] and for a A6 2.0 TDI ultra with S tronic 4.4 liters per 100 kilometres (53.5 US mpg) [114 grams CO2 per km (183.5 g/mi)].

Audi continues to respect a tiny tradition with a display of a new 3.0 TDI engine during a 35th International Vienna Motor Symposium holding place May 8 and 9 during a Congress Center Hofburg. The association presented a five‑cylinder TFSI engine here in 2009 and in 2010 a (at that time) new 3.0 TDI. The premieres of a 3.0 TDI biturbo and a new 1.8 TFSI followed in 2011. Audi presented a 4.0 TFSI in 2012, and a association initial presented a V6 TDI for a Audi R18 e‑tron quattro competition automobile to a open during a 2013 Vienna Motor Symposium.

“The Vienna Motor Symposium offers us an glorious theatre for a technologies,” pronounced Dr. Stefan Knirsch, Head of Engine Development. “We can benefaction a innovations and plead them here with experts from all around a world.” Besides a new 3.0 TDI, Audi is also presenting another creation in Vienna: a new seven-speed dual‑clutch delivery for models with longitudinal engines and front‑wheel drive. The latest-generation S tronic is intensely sporty, nonetheless really comfortable. The newly grown dual-clutch delivery impresses with a high efficiency, shortening CO2 emissions by as many as 10 grams per kilometer (16.1 g/mi).
