Nissan Says Gasoline Efficiency Breakthrough Up to 50% Efficiency

March 2, 2021 0 By autotimesnews

Nissan shared information about its own new technology that increased the thermal efficiency of the internal combustion engine up to 50%, while the average figure in the automotive industry is 40%.

The concept, now called STARC, is an increased flow of lean air that burns when the compression ratio is increased, allowing for a longer spark.

But achieving 50% efficiency is only possible when three conditions are simultaneously met, such as constant speed, constant load and heat recovery technology.

At the moment, the STARC concept is implemented as part of the e-Power hybrid, in which the internal combustion engine is used only as a generator. The Japanese corporation has no doubts that new technologies will be used on production cars in the near future.

As a reminder, Nissan is a Japanese automobile company that was founded in 1933. The automaker is headquartered in Yokohama, Japan. Note that this company has its enterprises in many countries, including Japan, UK, USA
