Audi of America will introduce a diesel option for every model. Great news!
The information was revealed by Audi’s U.S. chief, Johan de Nysschen, who spoke recently with Automotive News.
He explained that demand for diesel in Audi showrooms is outstripping supply. Nearly half of A3 sales in the U.S. are for the TDI model and the for the Q7, diesel accounts for almost 40 percent of sales. By the promised 2015 deadline, Nysschen is predicting that diesel will account for up to 20 percent of Audi’s total sales in the U.S. compared with 5.5 percent today.
Next in line to receive a diesel option will be the A8 and A6 sedans, followed by the Q5 crossover. The A4 isn’t expected to receive a diesel until the next-generation model arrives in 2015.
