Under development, Nissan said on Friday e-POWER with hybrid technology 50 percent made a breakthrough in achieving thermal efficiency, thereby ensuring that the car CO2 explained that it could lead to further reduction in emissions.
Nissan to increase engine thermal efficiency to 50 percent
The company has announced that the new level of thermal efficiency is e-POWER in the engine 40 percent He said it would increase fuel consumption by 25 percent above the thermal efficiency level.
In the statement made by the company on the subject, “Nissan’s latest approach to engine development has raised the bar to world-leading levels, and the current auto industry has made it possible to further reduce vehicle CO2 emissions by exceeding the average thermal efficiency range of 40%”. said.
However, the automaker, 50 percent It did not explain when the thermally efficient e-POWER technology will be launched on the market.
Senior vice president of powertrain and EV engineering at Nissan Toshihiro Hirai He told reporters on Friday that the automaker has maximized the thermal efficiency of e-POWER to reduce CO2 emissions while driving.
Additionally in 2016 JapanIntroduced in e-POWERNote that uses a gasoline engine to charge a battery that powers the vehicle.
Hirai told reporters gHe stated that it took 50 years to increase the thermal efficiency of conventional motors from 30 percent to 40 percent. However, he stated that with e-POWER, they could increase this to 50 percent within a few years. The vice president said that this was the goal of the engineering community.ultimate, challenging goalDescribed as ”.
To achieve this, the auto firm stated that it enhances in-cylinder gas flow and ignition, and this burns a more diluted air-fuel mixture at a high compression ratio.
In addition, Hirai said, “We cannot achieve carbon neutrality without establishing these basic technologies.”
The automaker stated last month that all new models in key markets will be electrified in the early 2030s to ensure carbon neutrality by 2050.
Finally, Nissan also announced that it expects more than one million electric vehicles to be sold annually by the end of the 2023 fiscal year.
