Audi A1 Gets Cylinder On Demand

Achieving higher mpg has become a craze.

Audi has now included COD in the 1.4-liter TFSI four-cylinder engine found in the Audi A1 which produces 138 hp (103 kW), 184 lb-ft (250 Nm) torque.

The COD system is ready to engage all the time as Audi has developed a control logic that monitors driving conditions and behavior but operationally engages at low to moderate engine speeds.

COD will automatically disengage if driving conditions change or either accelerator or brake pedal are pressed. The process is seamless and takes only one turn of the camshaft.

Here’s an animation of the process.
