HERNDON, Virginia — Audi will roll out TDI clean diesel versions of the Audi A6, A7, A8 and Q5 bound for the U.S. at the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show.

Pricing has not been announced for the quartet of Audi TDIs, said Andrew Lipman, an Audi of America spokesman in response to an e-mailed query from Edmunds.

The Audi A8 TDI arrives here in the spring, followed by fall 2013 rollouts for the A6, A7 and Q5 TDI.

The four join the Audi Q7 TDI, which went on sale in the U.S. in September.

The A6, A7, A8 and Q5 get Audi's turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 diesel engine that delivers 240 horsepower. The EPA says the 2013 Audi Q7 with the 3.0-liter V6 diesel engine returns 19 mpg in city driving and 28 mpg on the highway.

"The addition of these four models marks the first time Audi will feature a full lineup of TDI clean diesel vehicles in the U.S.," Audi said in a statement.

However, the German automaker has not said if an Audi A4 TDI for the U.S. is in the pipeline.

Edmunds says: Audi is clearly placing its bets on diesel for the U.S. with this showy display of firepower at the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show.
