Diesel Volkswagen Touareg showed high environmental friendlinessApril 6, 2020
The German company has published data on emissions from test races, which are incredibly surprising.
Volkswagen decided to prove that it’s too early to discount diesel powertrains. In addition to the high efficiency of such engines, they can also be very environmentally friendly. To do this, Volkswagen held a Touareg crossover with a V8 TDI engine in three different locations, measured air emissions and published the data. Arrivals took place in Lower Saxony, Baden-Württemberg and Bavaria. Locations were not chosen by chance, since they are at different heights above sea level, which affects the value of emissions.
The test results were amazing – in all three locations the emission indicators with a margin fit into the Euro 6 standard. Recall that the Euro 6 standard is NOx 80 mg / km. In Lower Saxony, emissions were 10 mg / km, in Bavaria 13 mg / km, and in Baden-Württemberg 20 mg. / km. The average emissions were 14 mg / km. After the publication of these data, Volkswagen can give a second life to diesel engines.
The management of the company has already said, due to which it was possible to achieve such indicators. The V8 TDI engine uses multi-stage exhaust treatment.
Using a catalytic converter, harmful emissions are converted into harmless vapor. Recall that the Volkswagen Touareg V8 TDI is equipped with a 4-liter diesel engine. The power plant reaches 415 hp at 900 Nm of torque. The engine works in tandem with an automatic transmission of 8 steps. The first 100 kph car is able to dial in 4.9 seconds.
