The other day we told you about some of the new internal combustion technologies that Volkswagen is developing. The crew at AutoExpress over in England actually got to visit Volkswagen's Ehra-Lessien test track to evaluate a Touran MPV equipped with a CCS engine. The CCS diesel system currently has a limited operating range, but where it can work it emits almost no particulates and vastly reduced NOx without requiring expensive after-treatment systems. The systems are still several years away from production applications.
