Volkswagen unveiled the production version of its Blue TDI, the advanced “clean” turbodiesel that will debut this summer in the 2009 Jetta.
VW said the Blue TDI for North America is based on the next-generation TDI engine that was introduced last year in Europe on the new Tiguan. For the U.S., the engine receives a NOx trap, as well as internal modifications to help reduce emissions.
VW said its Blue TDI system in the Jetta meets the tough new Bin5/Tier2 emissions standards imposed by California and four other states, while achieving up to 60 mpg in highway fuel economy.
