Volkswagen Has A New Way To Keep The Diesel Engine Alive – CarBuzz

The Volkswagen Group, in the fall-out of what became known as Dieselgate, has plunged the vast majority of its resources into electrification. Not only has the group developed a plethora of EVs like the Porsche Taycan, Audi e-tron GT, and VW ID.4, but it launched Electrify America as a multi-platform charging network committed to improving EV charging infrastructure across North America. In Europe, Asia, and Africa, however, the company still sells several diesel-powered variants.

In an effort to not leave customers out in the cold, VW wants to prolong the lifespan of these engines. To do so, and to ensure that they now burn cleaner than ever, four-cylinder TDI models delivered in Europe after June 2021 are capable of running on paraffinic diesel, which is a newly developed fuel relying on bio-components.

These fuels are bio-diesels with a paraffinic base produced from biological waste like hydrotreated vegetable oil, cooking oil, sawdust, and more.
