Demand to grow for internal combustion engines

Don’t write-off the internal combustion engine yet, a report is predicting a strong increase in demand for the traditional vehicle engine tech in coming years.

The 2017 Internal Combustion Engine Market Report is predicting a 7% growth in the number of internal combustion engines being fitted to vehicles over the next five years.

Cutting-edge petrol engine tech will drive much of that growth.

That technlogy, primarily, is homogeneous charge compression ignition (HCCI), a revolutionary take on the traditional internal combustion engine’s inner workings.

Proponents of HCCI engines, including Mazda, say HCCI engines deliver the torque and efficiency of a diesel engine, with the power and convenience of a petrol.

Mazda recently confirmed it would be utilizing the HCCI engine technology from next year.

The SkyActiv Mazda petrol engine with HCCI tech is being tipped to use 30% less fuel than the current engine when it lands in 2018.
