VW - 60 MPG, 90% Emissions Reduction

VW's ultra-low emission Jetta BlueTDI will be coming to the US mid-summer...

 VW had to custom modify the Jetta BlueTDI for the North American market. NOx reductions were met with internal engine modifications, some of which are "unique worldwide", and a maintenance-free NOx exhaust trap. Altogether, this system reduces NOx emissions by 90%.

Combining clean emissions with a road-tested 60 MPG highway fuel economy could make this a winner in the US.
