German Federal Parliament to drive efficient Audi A6 TDI ultra models

The transport service of the German Federal Parliament (Bundestag) has added 66 especially efficient full-size sedans to its fleet. With CO2 emissions of 114 grams per kilometer (183.5 g/mi), the Audi A6 2.0 TDI ultra is one of the lowest-consuming premium cars in its segment. In the coming days, Audi AG will be handing over the keys for the first cars of the efficiency fleet.

Audi models with the “ultra” badge attain best values in fuel consumption and emissions using innovative technical solutions. Audi already offers 22 ultra models for the A3, A4, A5 and A6 model series. (Earlier post.)

The Audi A6 ultra is powered by a two-liter TDI diesel with 140 kW (190 hp) that has been newly developed in many aspects. Its high torque of 400 N·m (295.0 lb-ft) ensures sporty power generation even at low engine speeds, along with low fuel consumption.

With the optional 7-speed S tronic— a completely new dual-clutch transmission—its average fuel consumption further drops to 4.4 liters per 100 kilometers (53.5 US mpg).


And Bri

Sure it look efficient but they would be better with a SMALLER car like a wolk polo. These politicians want luxury paid by taxation, please ask that the public service and military use smaller vehicles.
