Volkswagen has announced that the 2021 VW Golf GTD, which will be introduced at the Geneva Motor Show, will have one of the most environmentally friendly engines ever. Using a system called 'twin-dosing', this engine is said to reduce NOX gas emission values by 80%.
The diesel version of the Volkswagen Golf, called the GTD , is much less popular than the gasoline GTI version especially outside Europe, but this version has a rooted history as much as the gasoline version. At this point, the original GTI was released in 1975 , while the diesel version came out only 7 years later as the 1982 Golf GTD .
As you know, the new version of the Golf GTD was not expected due to the emission scandal of the German company in the past years, but according to the latest news, the new generation Mk8 will appear at the Geneva Motor Show in the upcoming days. The most important feature of this vehicle that will distinguish it from its predecessors will be the most environmentally friendly turbo diesel (TDI) engine that will ever take part in a Golf .
'The new Golf GTD will come with one of the most environmentally friendly engines ever'
The new Golf's by far the most environmentally-friendly turbo diesel (TDI) engine, Volkswagen said its future, however, the new Golf gtd'n's also one of the world's most environmentally friendly engine indicates the future. If we look at these explanations, the automobile giant is working very hard not to be on the agenda again with the emission scandal it has experienced in the past years .
Volkswagen, which is quite ambitious, says its words by relying on the latest 2.0 TDI engine. Using a system called 'twin-dosing' , this engine can reduce NOX gas emissions by 80% compared to the previous generation 2.0 TDI engine by increasing the number of catalytic converters that should normally be 1 . The most striking thing at this point is that while this development is happening, there is no loss in the performance of the vehicle or no increase in fuel consumption .
Although Volkswagen does not say how much power it will provide in the new Golf GTD, the vehicle is expected to be 197 horsepower . If this number is correct, the new vehicle will come with an increase of 16 horsepower compared to the old model. Also, if we consider the torque value of the previous Golf GTD to be 380 Nm, we can expect the new Golf GTD to produce torque in the range of 400 to 450 Nm .
