In addition to the hybrid Q7 we’ve already been promised, the diesel-powered version will feature a 3.0L V6 TDi that generates 230 hp and 369 ft-lbs. of torque. Audi’s engine has already met emissions standards in 45 states, but five remain to reach before the company says it will release the engine in this market. California, which has the strictest emissions standards, accounts for 40-percent of Audi’s sales, so don’t expect to be burning oil in your Q7 until the Golden State’s been satisfied.
