Volkswagen has unveiled the cleanest ever TDI engine. First test drives demonstrate the high potential of Volkswagen technologies, which consequently reduce nitrogen oxide. In the Jetta a new 2.0-litre common rail diesel engine with a nitrogen oxide reservoir catalytic converter is used. The first production run of the 'Clean TDI' with nitrogen oxide post-treatment system will be made during 2008 in the USA. The central theme of the entire concept is the reduction of nitrogen oxide. Engineers in Wolfsburg reached this goal through internal development of the engine and the use of new emission post-treatment technology. The result: up to 90% less nitrogen oxide emissions (NOx).
