Sogefi to supply oil filters for the new Audi Q7
Sogefi, the automotive components company of the CIR group, has been selected by Audi to supply the oil filter for the new SuV model Q7 with a 4.0l V8 TDI engine. This engine will be one of the first in the world to be equipped with an electrical supercharger, and will also be used in other upcoming models including the Audi A8, the Porsche Panamera and Cayenne and the VW Touareg.
The Sogefi filter is lightweight, comprising a glassfiber reinforced polyamide housing and cover, plus an Eco filter element that is entirely incinerable.
Mauro Prodi, Aftermarket General Manager, said the selection of Sogefi as oil filter partner for such an important new engine was an endorsement of the company's engineering and R&D capability. "Our engineers have repeatedly proven that the Sogefi advanced filter technologies are first choice for global operating OEMs, thus creating positive, sustainable results for both us and our Aftermarket customers in terms of environmental impact, product quality and cost," he said. In the Independent Aftermarket, Sogefi is one of Europe’s leading vehicle filter suppliers, providing the same high level quality features as the OE products.
