- PRESS RELEASE
Audi Middle East announces the release of diesel engines for the GCC countries. For the start the Q7 V12 TDI and the Q7 4.2 TDI will be available for ordering upon request. Jeff Mannering, Managing Director of Audi Middle East states "Diesel engines are not as common in the Middle East, but have great potential for efficiency, higher torque and lower CO2 emissions.
Diesel engines combine great propulsive power and exemplary fuel efficiency, and demonstrate that this technology also holds great potential for the future. The TDI from Audi had put an end once and for all to the old diesel image as "lame, loud, and dirty" and turned it into the opposite. Today nearly every automaker includes this technology in its program.
Audi has been building diesel engines for over 30 years and since pioneering TDI in 1989, Audi has produced over five million TDI engines and more recently claimed fame as the first manufacturer to win the 24 hours of Le Mans endurance race with a diesel driven race car.
The abbreviation TDI combines turbocharging, direct injection and totally electronic engine management. In addition to the engines, further engineering features, from recuperation systems over lightweight aluminum body design, LED lights and highly efficient air conditioning systems to economical route guidance in the navigation systems, contribute to the high efficiency of the vehicles.
