Bosch Clean Diesels In US NOW

May 9, 2010; Clean diesel is capturing more attention and acceptance from a significant number of U.S. consumers who, when provided the option, are choosing diesel, which on average has better fuel economy, reduced emissions and greater torque than its port fuel injection gasoline engine counterpart. Additionally, diesel vehicles provide a lower total cost of ownership, thereby delivering real economic value for their owners.

Bosch analysis shows that when both diesel and gasoline engine options are offered, diesel-powered cars are the choice for a significant number of drivers in the U.S. Using new car registration data provided by R.L Polk & Co., a respected independent source that analyzes and gathers automotive-related data, Bosch determined that for the 12-month period beginning January 2009, about 30 percent of the registrations had clean diesel engines.

“The advantage of clean diesel’s increased fuel economy and great power characteristics are clearly impacting the marketplace,” Ullrich said. “Everything we hear from the marketplace indicates the interest in clean diesel technology is growing, even though several models were just introduced into the U.S. market during the 2009 model year.”

For example, in the following vehicles – when given the choice between gasoline- and clean
diesel-powered engines.

* Audi A3 TDI – 20 percent
* Audi Q7 TDI – 30 percent
* BMW 335d – 8 percent
* BMW X5 xDrive x35d – 17 percent
* Mercedes-Benz GL 350 BlueTEC – 18 percent
* Mercedes-Benz ML 350 BlueTEC – 13 percent
* Mercedes-Benz R 350 BlueTEC – 12 percent
* VW Jetta TDI (Sedan and Sportwagen) – 49 percent+
* Volkswagen Touareg TDI – 33 percent
