Such a unit will have a high-pressure injection system operating at pressures up to 3,000 bar or an electric blower (e-booster).Winterkorn believes that the combustion aggregates is still a lot of potential. "Since 2000, we have reduced the fuel consumption of our engines labeled TDI and TSI by more than 30 percent. I believe that 2020 may further increase their efficiency by about 15 percent, " says the head of the German concern.


The new generation engine has to offer improved combustion process, intelligent lightweight construction and optimized friction and temperature control.


The key to reducing emissions will also bet on alternative fuels - German concern to many such promises from vehicles running on compressed natural gas.
