Audi has announced it will present its new 2.0-liter TFSI engine, the most efficient two-liter gas engine in its class, along with the new 3.0-liter TDI version of its Q7 e-tron Quattro at the upcoming Vienna Motor Symposium on May 7 and 8.
The new engine will be presented by three Audi developers during the industry meeting in Vienna. Audi says the 2.0-liter TFSI mill uses an “innovative combustion principle,” for enhanced efficiency, but didn’t go into further detail on new turbocharged power unit. The Q7 e-tron, which is powered by Audi’s 3.0-liter diesel V6 engine, will also be shown on the same day by Audi’s head of E-modules, Roman Straßer.
“The Vienna Motor Symposium is an excellent forum for Audi as a leading technology brand,” Audi’s head of technical development, Prof. Dr. Ulrich Hackenberg, said in a statement. “Specifically in the drive area we have been taking pioneering solutions into production for many years now – first the TDI, then the TFSI, and latterly our electrified concepts. The specialist congress in Vienna gives us the opportunity to present them to international experts.”
In addition to the Q7 e-tron and 2.0-liter engine announcements, Hackenberg, will also address the Vienna Motor Symposium in a talk entitled ‘Audi at Le Mans – The Success Story of the TDI’ and will have some of its more innovative production models on display in addition to other engine and driving exhibits.
