Toyota says its new combustion engines are game-changers

Their chief technical officer says that the new petrol engines are completely different from the current internal combustion engines.

Enthusiasm for electric car has decreased significantly in recent months and Toyota she will probably feel somewhat justified. The largest car manufacturer in the world has been making it clear for some time that he intends to stay with the internal combustion engine. And even predicts completely a new generation of gasoline engines.

Although it will be a while before we are new drives seen in serial production, it is to us a Japanese company At the end of May, the new four-cylinder internal combustion engines showed up unfinished development. Now Toyota CTO offers further details on his own petrol future. hiroki nakajima is in an interview for Automotive News new 1.5- and 2,0-liter described the engines as potentially “a game-changing solution". He even went so far as to describe the engines as “completely different" compared to the current state of development. Although it does hydrogen cars have not yet managed to establish themselves on the market, at Toyota they say the development is quite unpopular Mirai helped engineers learn more about efficiency.

Toyota says its new internal combustion engines will change the rules of the game

Nakajima he didn't detail the effectiveness, but he did Toyota achieved years ago 40 percent efficiency. Nissan boasts even s 50 percent, which should be achieved through technology e power. It uses the internal combustion engine as a generator for the battery instead of driving the wheels. Mazda is another Japanese automaker with a very similar approach. Crossover MX-30 used for this purpose Wankle engine. Toyota's technical director mentioned that the new engines will have a shorter piston stroke. It was "a very complex task". All these fellows four-cylinder engines will be smaller in order to “revolutionized vehicle packaging". This is said to allow for lower front ends and in turn increase efficiency due to better aerodynamic drag. Torque, which is lost in this new type of engine, is replaced by smooth response of the electric motor. In the development of these new engines, the main focus is on hybrid solutions.

The first cars with new engines will be expected to be on the market for years 2027. Toyota is not only designing powertrains for use with fossil fuels. They will also work on biofuel, hydrogen in synthetic fuels. In words Nakajima has a new family of engines "lots of room to maneuver", which suggests that we can expect more a trick or two, which the automaker has yet to reveal. Toyota's other manufacturers are now following suit. The market demands it. Forehead Volkswagen, which has introduced one of the strictest electric strategies, now is rethinking and investing heavily into further development of its internal combustion engines.
