GM develops a new global range of small-displacement Ecotec petrol engines that provide customers in the global market with lower fuel consumption, higher quality, better performance and lower CO2 emissions.
Joint SAIC develops small displacement Ecotec engine
This new global engine family will include a three-cylinder and four-cylinder engine series with displacements from 1.0L to 1.5L, developed and manufactured in multiple regions around the world, and used in global markets. They will provide customers with superior fuel economy and superior performance with light design and advanced technologies such as direct injection, turbocharging and alternative fuels. The new engine range is also designed to further reduce noise, vibration and harshness.
Customers around the world agree that we need to reduce our dependence on gasoline and reduce carbon emissions. Jim Federico, director of the platform platform for GM's global small and electric vehicles, said: We are actively working on vehicle electrification and other technologies, but the most urgent task It is the continuous improvement of internal combustion engines.
The integration of the global engine range has reduced the current three engine series to one. It is part of GM's global product development strategy to reduce engineering design, manufacturing complexity and cost while improving competitiveness, efficiency and quality.
Production is expected to begin in the next decade. These engines will be used in GM's global products, spanning multiple vehicle architectures across regions.
