Audi has worked hard to become known as the brand with the most complete lineup of clean-diesel vehicles in the American market, and as the foremost advocate for that particular type of “green” technology.
Yet Audi of America always has carried out an “all-of-the-above” powertrain strategy and has expressed strong support for a similar approach in U.S. automotive public policy.
And now the company’s stance is paying off in the form of a lineup for the new Audi A3 sedan that will present its own complete all-of-the-above family of options. In the United States, they’ll range from two TFSI gasoline engines with greatly improved fuel efficiency, to a TDI clean-diesel version, to the brand’s first plug-in hybrid model, the A3 Sportback e-tron, which will be powered in part by a 1.4-liter TFSI engine.
