Still Not Dead: The ICE’s Continued Evolution
Mr Davies will emphasize that there is still significant potential to optimize both conventional and hybridized ICE based powertrains and that indeed the best is still to come.
“Boosting an Engine to enable high efficiency, low emission advanced combustion technologies is our prime objective. Advanced Wastegates turbochargers, Variable Geometry Turbines and electric Turbochargers are all being deployed to ensure that the ICE reaches its full potential.”
