Volkswagen America announces new 2014 diesel engine with Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR)

Niels Tholen - 9 August 2013

Volkswagen has announced its new 2.0L EA228 engine which it says will be able to meet all upcoming emission regulation. The engine will come with an after treatment system including SCR, Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) and advanced Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) technology. Both DPF and SCR technologies are combined in one component saving space and costs, according to VW.

The new engine and after treatment package are part of VWs strategy to communize emission systems around the globe. The engine is designed to provide "scalable" options for upcoming legislation such as Euro 6 as well as California's Lev III standards.

The engine is expected to debut in the second half of 2014 in the '15 Jetta, Golf, Passat and Beetle.
