By Mark LoharThe Audi A3 TDI was the first car in the world to be certified as a low emission diesel vehicle (LEV) by the European Commission.
It was also the first electric car to be registered as such in the United Kingdom, the country of its origin.
Now Audi is adding the TDI to the UK’s range of cars, with the Audi A5 4.2 TDI.
The TDI is the successor to the A3, and will be sold in the new model range of the A5 as the TDi.
The A5 TDI will be the first Audi to be sold as an all-electric car in Britain, according to the German automaker.
Audi is the first automaker in the European Union to have certified an all electric car as a LEV, and it will also be the last to do so in the country, as the European Council on Low Emission Vehicles (CELV) has ruled that diesel cars should be classified as LEVs.
“It’s a great day for the car industry, as we finally have a truly electric car for the UK,” said Audi chairman and CEO Rupert Stadler.
The TDI, Audi’s first electric vehicle in the EU, is also the same model as the A4.
The new model A5 will come with a new roof and hood, and new exterior and interior design.
The roof is removable, and the car is also equipped with a battery charger.
This is a very important milestone for Audi, which has been trying to reach LEV certification in the US and Europe.
Earlier this year, Audi confirmed that it will begin production of the TDIs in Europe next year, but the automaker still has to make sure the cars meet certain emissions standards.
The German automakers aim to make the TDAs eligible for LEV status in the 2020s.
