Audi and parent company Volkswagen have long been proponents of diesel-powered vehicles, and now the German automaker is looking to further the penetration of the original gas-alternative in North America.

During a press conference today, Audi of America boss Johan de Nysschen confirmed that along with the current A3 and Q7 clean diesel models, the U.S. will get diesel versions of the A6 and A8 luxury sedans, as well as a diesel version of the Q5.

The expansion of Audi’s TDI portfolio will take place over the next 24-36 months says de Nysschen.

Unfortunately no diesel A4 will be available, at least not until the next generation of the car in 2015.
