Volkswagen Group announced that throughout 2013 they managed to sell 100,000 TDI Clean Diesel VW and Audi vehicles to American customers. This is a milestone not just for Volkswagen, but for diesel cars in the U.S. Looks like Americans are finally recognizing the benefits of diesel fuel.  

Volkswagen did diesel a favour by offering a range of technologically-advanced TDI vehicles in America. VW and Audi currently offer 12 different TDI Clean Diesel powered models in the United States, challenging petrol-powered rivals with their superior torque, excellent fuel economy, and low CO2 emissions.

VW Group products currently account for 75 percent of the diesel engines sold in the passenger car and SUV segments in the United States. Diesel-powered Volkswagen models offered in America include Beetle, Beetle Convertible, Golf, Jetta, Jetta SportWagen, Passat and Touareg. And as for the ones with an Audi badge, they include Q7, Q5 TDI, A6 TDI, A7 TDI and A8 TDI. They will be joined next summer by the all-new A3 TDI sedan.

“Selling more than 100,000 TDI Clean Diesel vehicles is a significant milestone for Volkswagen Group of America,” said Mark McNabb, chief operating officer, Volkswagen of America. “We’re excited to see the increasing numbers of customers able to enjoy the reliability, durability, fuel-efficiency and power of the clean diesel engine.”
