Y VW ha decidido dejar de vender esas versiones TDi (todas las comercializadas en USA) ante la evidencia del coste de montar nuevas motorizaciones que cumplan la normativa de emisiones 2007 en ese mercado. Lo mismo pasa con la versión diesel del Jeep Compass, mientras que el Grand Cherokee anuncia una versión "Bluetec" de sus propulsores de origen Mercedes CDI (CRD) que si cumpla la normativa (que debe ser estericta para que los modernos CDi de merchy no la cumplan, digo yo) Noticia completa: Confirmed: VW to drop all diesel cars in U.S. for 2007 As first reported by Leftlane News in December — but ignored by the mainstream press until this weekend — new emissions regulations will force Volkswagen to drop all of its diesel passenger cars in the U.S. for 2007. On Sunday, the Detroit Free Press said VW will drop the hot-selling diesel versions of its Jetta, Golf and Beetle. The new U.S. limits for nitrogen oxide emissions are among the most stringent in the world, the report said. As noted in the original LLN report, VW won’t be able to offer diesel versions of these cars until scheduled redesigns. The VW Touareg will continue to be sold because it’s classified as a truck. VW plans to stockpile extra ‘06 model Jettas before the regulations come into effect. Like the Volkswagen Jetta, Golf, and Beetle, the diesel version of the Jeep Liberty will no longer be sold in the United States. The reason? The engine doesn’t meet tougher federal emissions standards that go into effect next year, according to the Detroit Free Press. Also like Volkswagen, Chrysler decided it wasn’t cost-effective to the replace the engine with a more modern version. On Friday, Chrysler announced a new diesel Jeep Grand Cherokee with clean ‘Bluetec’ technology. Late last month, we reported that Volkswagen had confirmed plans to drop three models for 2007 due to the regulations. In December, Leftlane News exclusively reported that emission regulations could force automakers to halt sales of many diesel models.
