Volkswagen Group introduces particulate filter for petrol engines

Posted on 04. Aug, 2016 by in Volkswagen Canada

The Volkswagen Group is stability to work assiduously on a environmental harmony of required expostulate systems. The association has now motionless on wide-scale use of particulate filters for petrol engines, supposed ‘gasoline particulate filters (GPF)’. From 2017, all Group approach injection TSI and TFSI engines will be propitious step-by-step with petrol particulate filters. Emissions of excellent slag particles will be reduced in this approach by adult to 90 per cent.

By 2022, a series of Volkswagen Group vehicles being versed with this record annually could strech 7 million. The routine is starting in Jun 2017 with a 1.4-litre TSI engine in a new Volkswagen Tiguan (1) and a 2.0 TFSI in a Audi A5 (2). Implementation will afterwards follow in serve models and engine generations.

Particulate filters for diesel engines are already proven and established. The gasoline particulate filter will now revoke a particulate emissions of approach injection petrol engines by adult to 90 per cent. Dr. Ulrich Eichhorn, Head of Group Research and Development: “Following increases in potency and revoke CO2 output, we are now bringing about a postulated rebate in a glimmer levels of a complicated petrol engines by wise particulate filters as standard.”

Despite a cost for formidable empty gas diagnosis systems for new models, Volkswagen is dynamic to revoke a diesel vehicles’ pollutant emissions as well. Eichhorn: “In a future, all models will be versed with a latest and many fit SCR catalytic converter technology.”

Using analogous measurements, eccentric contrast bodies have dynamic that both complicated EU 6 diesel engines and petrol engines from a Volkswagen Group are already a cleanest on a market. In a EQUA Air Quality Index, for example, London-based Emission Analytics looked during a world’s 440 many renouned models and ranked a Volkswagen Group as a tip performer by some margin.

The association ranked initial in 3 categories: EU 6 petrol engine, EU 5 petrol engine and EU 6 hybrid vehicles. The best 6 EU 6 diesel vehicles also come from Volkswagen, Audi and Skoda; among a EU 5 diesels tested, a sum of 5 models in a tip 10, including a tip dual from Audi and Skoda, are also from a Volkswagen Group.

Further sum on a EQUA Index:


Fuel consumption

1) Tiguan 1.4 TSI – fuel expenditure in l/100 km: 6,9 – 5,7 (combined), CO2 emissions in g/km: 155 – 139 (combined), Efficiency class: C-B
2) Audi A5 2.0 TFSI – fuel expenditure in l/100 km: 6,3 – 5,8 (combined), CO2 emissions in g/km: 148 – 136 (combined) Efficiency class: B
