Renault develops a new 1.3 TCe petrol engine
An unprecedented gasoline engine 1.3-liter TCe allow Renault to advance consumption and emissions in the race for the future Euro 7 regulation.

They were words spoken by Alain Raposo, head of Nissan and Renault engines, at a technical conference last summer. It predicted hard times for diesel engines to a short-term, accentuated by the more than likely political decision prohibit trafficking Diesel private cars in cities. also anticipated the announcement to wean these engines in its smaller vehicles and the arrival of a new generation of gasoline engines, cleaner and more efficient, which must be valid for both vehicles and small cars means at least porte.

It will have manual changes in all three versions of power, although the most powerful addition it will have a new automatic EDC double clutch seven-speed. It is not yet available consumption figures or benefits, although itself will have a system of stop-start engine Stop&Start saving on allowing city.
East 1.3 TCe petrol engine Renault It’s about a direct injection turbo propeller and butt four valves per cylinder, what it will allow both bet elasticity as to manage all the precise instant combustion processes by regulating both the temperature inside the combustion chambers to control the formation of unburnt particles -given initially will not filter of particulate matter, as the purification processes present in the exhaust. The object is to ensure at all times be within the Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedures demanding regulations to come into force soon and uplifting velocities and accelerations required for approval. Before her, the aforementioned standard Euro 6 will have incorporated an actual driving cycle in open public roads, with systems less accurate than laboratory that will force all manufacturers to “play safe” and increase its measuring range fulfillment.
