Engine Downsizing Poised For Increased Penetration Across Gasoline Engines, Finds Frost & Sullivan
Downsizing engines results in lower torque output from the engine and, hence, lower transient response. Variable geometry turbocharging (VGT) is a good solution for better torque output, however, introducing VGT at a low cost for gasoline engines will be a challenge.
"In diesel engines, aggressive downsizing results in higher specific load and, therefore, increased NOx emissions," explains Srinivasan. "This, in turn, will have an effect cost as NOx after-treatment technologies such as SCR are expensive."
OEMs are likely to experience higher sales of low CO2 emitting vehicles and thus pass on the tax benefits to the end-consumer. This offers excellent scope for selling low emission models such as Ford Focus, Volkswagen Polo, Volkswagen Golf and Opel/Vauxhall Corsa.
"With improved emissions and performance, without drop in fuel economy, being the key drivers, engine downsizing is all set to have a major impact towards achieving emissions of <120 g/km CO2 in two-thirds of new car sales by 2016," concludes Srinivasan.If you are interested in more information on Frost & Sullivan's study 2011 Original Equipment Manufacturers Strategies for Passenger Vehicle Engine Downsizing in Western Europe , please send an e-mail with your contact details to Katja Feick, Corporate Communications, at firstname.lastname@example.org. 2011 Original Equipment Manufacturers Strategies for Passenger Vehicle Engine Downsizing in Western Europe is part of the Automotive & Transportation Growth Partnership Service programme, which also includes research in the following markets: 2010 Europe Consumer Attitudes and Perceptions toward Sustainability, Environment, and Alternative Powertrains - Key Findings on Transmission Technologies and Comparative Analysis of European OEMs Powertrain Strategies for Euro 6 Compliance.
