Project to improve efficiency of next-gen gasoline engines

Project to improve efficiency of next-gen gasoline engines
While powertrain electrification offers significant opportunities to reduce vehicle emissions in the urban environment, the gasoline engine is likely to continue to play a significant role in passenger cars – both in conventional and hybrid powertrains – for many years to come. This is particularly the case for mid- to premium-sized passenger cars that are used for longer-distance journeys.
