Demonstrator Vehicle for Advanced Downsizing
Published October 12, 2011 by Society of Automotive Engineers of Japan in Japan
Gasoline engine downsizing is firmly established as one of the main technologies for achieving the fleet CO₂ reduction targets, with increasing degrees of downsizing being applied in the market place. It has been developed to produce 30 bar peak BMEP and 100 kW/l to maintain excellent vehicle dynamic performance, whilst still providing significant CO₂ reductions with a 5.8 l/100 km fuel consumption in the "New European Driving Cycle" NEDC.
