During its annual press conference, Audi has offered a series of very good news for the US market. Next to the current diesel engines offered for the A3 and the Q7, diesel engines will also be offered for the A6, A8, and Q5. The A4 will get a diesel engine starting 2014-2015 when the next generation will be released. However, the best news is that an R8 E-tron is expected to arrive in America in 2013.

"Revenue for the past year reached around EUR 35.4 billion. It was therefore 18.8 percent up on the 2009 figure. The operating profit was EUR 3.34 billion, an increase of 108 percent. Profit before tax was EUR 3.6 billion, 88.5 percent up on the previous year – a record for our company. And with an operating return on sales of 9.4 percent we are right at the sharp end of the premium segment."

"The economy also performed well in the United States and, despite initially weak consumer and labor market data, gradually returned to the growth path of previous years with a 2.9 percent rise in economic output."

I was a bit disappointed that they think that Americans doesn’t this engine option! Well, its a good thing that they are offering a diesel version for this car.

For sure Americans won’t mind for they can afford to consume plenty of diesel. However, I think with all the diesel car that is out in the market I think its the time that Audi consider to make a hybrid car.

Well, that’s a good news for Americans. They are craving so much for the Audi, then here it is on its way to US. And i think diesel consumption is not a big deal in Us..i guess?

It seems that Audi is really getting aggressive at gaining a fair share of the US market. And with the lineup that they will be bringing, it is highly likely that they will succeed.

I don’t why does the 4 state in US wanted to use this powered diesel car. The cities are already congested on the pollution around the street, it could harm the health of the people. And besides we are already hosed by hybrids. Audi doesn’t own all the diesel technology!

That one is actually rather nice of Audi, since there will be a lot of interesting options that they will be able to give clients. Definitely something that I would want to watch out for.
