Last year at the Los Angeles Auto Show, Audi introduced four new TDI models; the A6, A7, A8L, and Q5. The A8L TDI went on sale back in the Spring and the rest would be on sale at a later time. Well, Audi has announced that the A6, A7, and Q5 TDI will be arriving at dealers this summer.
“As drivers increasingly look for high fuel efficiency and low-emissions output, demand for diesel is on the rise. The introduction of the highly-efficient Audi A6, A7 and Q5 TDIs continue Audi’s commitment to clean diesel technology and further the brand’s focus on balanced performance solutions that improve efficiency and driving dynamics,” said Audi of America's President, Scott Keogh.
