We weten dat Audi op dit moment een soort zuinigheid toer door Europa aan het maken is.
Het leuke van dit evenement is dat er niet alleen van die suffe modellen aan mee doen.
Nee, er zijn ook wat leuke modellen mee zoals de S3, S4, TT RS, Q7 V12TDI en een A5 sportbackt 3.2 quattro.
Dit zijn nu niet direct auto’s waarmee je denkt, daar gaan wij nu eens 1 op 10 mee halen.
Toch zijn er inmiddels behoorlijke resultaten geboekt.

Efficiency Challenge A to B:
Audi demonstrates outstanding efficiency
• New Audi A3 1.6 TDI with consumption figures around three litres
• Impressive results from high-performance models, too
• Long-distance tour through Europe with 20 models from the
Ingolstadt – On its very first outing under real-life traffic conditions, the
Audi A3 1.6 TDI is already turning in impressive consumption figures. With
a top mark of 3.0 litres per 100 kilometres, the latest version of the
successful model came in well below its already excellent nominal
consumption of 3.8 litres, equating to CO2 emissions of 99 g/km. The other
models of the Audi range also shone on the first three days of the
“Efficiency Challenge A to B”, which covers 4,182 kilometres from A on the
Norwegian Lofoten Islands to Bée in northern Italy.
A total of 120 journalists and brand customers are taking part in the tour in
20 cars from across 5 model ranges. The interim results after the first three days
offer clear evidence of the outstanding efficiency of the entire Audi product range.
Alongside the new Audi A3 1.6 TDI, the Audi A4 2.0 TDI e turned in an
exceptional best-of-day result of 3.9 litres. A further new model, the Audi A5
Sportback 2.0 TFSI, also covered the route through Norway with a best
consumption figure of 4.9 litres.
Efficiency is standard fit in every Audi – which is why the sporty top-of-the-range
models are also taking part in the Efficiency Challenge – with similarly impressive
results. The powerful 245 kW (333 hp) Audi S4 achieved a best figure of 7.7 litres
per 100 kilometres, and even the top model from the TDI range, the 368 kW
(500 hp) Audi Q7 V12 TDI, sipped only 8.7 litres.
The best-of-day results from the individual models on the first wave:
A3 Sportback 1.6 TDI – 3.0 l
S3 Sportback – 7.0 l
A4 2.0 TDI e – 3.9 l S4 – 7.7 l
A5 Sportback 2.0 TFSI – 4.9 l
A5 Sportback 3.2 FSI quattro – 7.5 l
Q7 3.0 TDI clean diesel quattro – 7.9 l
Q7 V12 TDI – 8.7 l
TT 2.0 TDI – 4.9 l TT RS – 7.3 l
On tour under everyday traffic conditions
The phrase “driving from A to B” also stands for everyday mobility – for that
multiplicity of individual transportation that everyone takes for granted. In recent
days, Audi has been taking this quite literally – with the “Audi Efficiency
Challenge A to B”. The journey began in northern Europe, in the Norwegian
village of Å on the Lofoten Islands and travels through eight countries all the way
to northern Italy, to Bée on Lago Maggiore.
The tour has been split into three waves of three days each – the first runs from Å to Trondheim in Norway, the second to the German capital of Berlin and the third ends at the ultimate destination, the village of Bée above Lago Maggiore. Along the way, the tour offers a diverse range of roads and landscapes; it wends its way along the coastal roads of Norway, as well as the autobahns of Germany.
Impressive cities like Oslo, Copenhagen and Prague are also on the itinerary, as
are the heights of the Alps. The Audi Efficiency Challenge ends on
30 September 2009.
Leading role in efficiency
When it comes to efficiency, Audi holds the leading role among the premiumcar makers – right now, 32 models emit less than 140 grams of CO2 per kilometre. The latest version of the Audi A3 1.6 TDI, with only 99 grams of CO2 per kilometre, is celebrating its world premiere on the “A to B” and can now demonstrate its efficiency under real-life traffic conditions. The A4 2.0 TDI e with its 100 kW (136 hp) 2.0 TDI emits only 119 grams of CO2 per kilometre.
This excellent performance is in no small part due to Audi’s modular efficiencyplatform, which brings together a broad portfolio of highly effective technologies. Audi is applying these new solutions, such as the recuperation, in a variety of ways across its entire model range.
