The move by vehicle makers toward engine downsizing to meet the auto industry's targets for lower carbon dioxide emissions by 2008 is spelling out good news for turbocharger suppliers. Although smaller engines are more fuel-efficient, motorists still demand the same performance. A turbocharger fitted to a 1.8-litre engine can deliver the peak power of a 3-litre naturally aspirated unit but use 15% less fuel. Consequently, turbo manufacturers see no abatement in demand for their product, particularly in Europe where direct injection diesel engines are powering more and more passenger cars. This overview is extracted from a new report published by ABOUT Automotive and Auto Research Analysts.
