Volkswagen Unveils 2008 Jetta TDI Bluetec Diesel in the US

Volkswagen today unveiled the new 2008 Volkswagen Jetta TDI at the DC Auto Show. The new 2008 Volkswagen Jetta TDI has the new 2.0 liter four-cylinder BLUETEC diesel engine that was announced in the beginning of this month. The 2.0 liter Common Rail diesel engine, used in a Jetta, uses a nitrogen oxide reservoir catalytic converter to reduce the levels of nitrogen oxide.

The Jetta TDI is one of the first products of the BLUETEC offensive initiated jointly by Audi, Mercedes-Benz, and Volkswagen. The goal of this partnership is to establish the concept of BLUETEC as a uniform label for clean and highly fuel efficient diesel-powered cars and SUVs with 50-state compliant engines.
