Renault’s powertrain division Horse has signed a multi-year agreement to supply its diesel engines to Turkish automaker HABAŞ.

The agreement represents Horse’s first major partnership with an automotive manufacturer outside of its existing ownership relationship, following numerous successful contract wins in South American markets, it says.

Horse’s M920 RWD 2.0-litre turbo diesel will be used in the engine of HABAŞ’s first-ever Light Commercial Vehicles (LCVs) and will supply its powertrains to HABAŞ’s new production facility in Manisa, Turkey.

Patrice Haettel, Chief Executive Officer at Horse, said: “The first major agreement with a new automotive manufacturer is a significant milestone for the company and truly highlights our ambition to provide class-leading low emissions powertrains to clients across the globe.”

The 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine delivers maximum power of 170PS (125kW) at 3,500rpm, while peak torque of 380Nm is delivered at just 1,500rpm for excellent driveability and fuel efficiency under all loads and road conditions.
