The anxiety value for a new indication designations is a energy outlay of a particular indication in kilowatts (kW). Audi is so subclassifying a indication operation into opposite opening levels – any identified by a two-numeral combination. For example, a symbol multiple “30” will seem on a back of all models with energy outlay between 81 and 96 kW. And “45” stands for energy outlay between 169 and 185 kW. The tip of a Audi indication operation is a opening category above 400 kW, that is identifiable by a array multiple “70”. In any box a numerals seem along with a engine record – TFSI, TDI, g-tron or e-tron.
The array combinations identifying a opening levels in a Audi product operation boost in increments of five, and they paint a hierarchy within both a particular indication array and a brand’s altogether indication range. According to a new nomenclature, in a destiny a spectrum will operation from a Audi Q2 30 TFSI with 85 kW (combined fuel expenditure in l/100 km: 5.4 – 5.1*; CO2 emissions in g/km: 123 – 117*) to a Audi Q7 50 TDI with 200 kW (combined fuel expenditure in l/100 km: 6.4 – 5.9*; CO2 emissions in g/km: 168 – 154*). A special place in a choice is reserved by a high-end, high-performance S and RS models and a Audi R8 (combined fuel expenditure in l/100 km: 12.5 – 11.4; total CO2 emissions in g/km: 292 – 272). They will keep their classical names in anxiety to their tip position in a indication range.
“As choice expostulate technologies turn increasingly relevant, engine banishment as a opening charge is apropos reduction critical to a customers. The clarity and proof of structuring a designations according to energy outlay creates it probable to heed between a several opening levels,” explains Dr. Dietmar Voggenreiter, Board of Management Member for Sales and Marketing during AUDI AG.
The changes will flog off with a new Audi A8 era in a tumble of 2017. First among a dual six-cylinder engines to be redesignated will be a 3.0 TDI with 210 kW – as a Audi A8 50 TDI (combined fuel expenditure in l/100 km: 5.8 – 5.6**; total CO2 emissions in g/km: 152 – 145**), and a 3.0 TFSI with 250 kW – as a Audi A8 55 TFSI (combined fuel expenditure in l/100 km: 7.8 – 7.5**; total CO2 emissions in g/km: 178 – 171**).
In a entrance months, all Audi indication array launched on a marketplace will be reserved a new opening designations commencement when they are offering for sale. Audi will change a designations of a remaining indication array in a stream product operation in time for a new indication year changeover in summer of 2018.
