Efficiency-Technologies

For Audi, efficiency is the sum of numerous individual steps all leading to one major goal: the combination of low fuel consumption with comfort and an enjoyable driving experience. From the further development of innovative engine technologies to high-efficiency drive train and transmission components, intelligent lightweight body construction to low-drag aerodynamics, the engineers at Audi are working hard on every component and system in the vehicle to reduce consumption and emissions. But there are still many other variables to consider. The efficiency of the auxiliaries, optimizing the rolling resistance of the tires, intelligent energy management and modern, comprehensively networked driver assistance systems also play a significant role here.

    Efficient and clean: exhaust aftertreatment for gasoline and diesel engines

    Audi is using complex exhaust aftertreatment systems to meet increasingly lower emission limits. Besides the utilization of in-engine technology, the latest gasoline and diesel engines meet the strict standards especially due to powerful and sophisticated exhaust gas purification systems. Particulate filters complement catalytic exhaust aftertreatment on both TDI and TFSI engines.

    Audi networks with traffic lights in Düsseldorf

    Audi is moving ahead with networked traffic lights in Düsseldorf. After Ingolstadt, the city on the Rhine is the second in Europe in which Audi is introducing its Traffic Light Information service. At the end of January, Audi drivers will see information from around 150 traffic lights in their cockpit, thus increasing their chance of catching a “green wave”. By early summer most of the intersections in Düsseldorf, approximately 450 out of a total of some 600 installations, will be networked. Vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) services like Audi Traffic Light Information increase efficiency, convenience and safety on the roads.

    Streamline: Audi e-tron prototype with decisive aerodynamics

    The better an electric car’s aerodynamics, the further it travels: With a drag coefficient of 0.27, the Audi e-tron prototype achieves a top result in the SUV segment. This figure is a decisive factor in the everyday range of more than 400 kilometers (248.5 mi) in the WLTP cycle. The virtual exterior mirrors constitute one highlight in the aerodynamics concept of the all-electric premium class model.
