10 Dec 2017 | International News : France

Renault has introduced a new direct injection turbocharged petrol engine co-developed by the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance and Daimler. This new engine offers significant improvement in driving pleasure, with better torque at low rpm and greater and constant availability at high rpm, while reducing fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

The new petrol engines will be inaugurated on the Scenic and Grand Scenic lineup first before being progressively offered in the Renault range from 2018
The Energy TCe 160 engine offers a maximum torque of 260Nm in manual gearbox and 270Nm in EDC gearbox when reaching maximum power. This maximum torque is reached from 1,750rpm and up to 3,700rpm.

The Energy TCe 140 engine has CO2 output of 122g/km (125g/km for Grand Scenic) and achieves 52.2mpg (NEDC) (50.4mpg for Grand Scenic).

Meanwhile, the Energy TCe 115 - available in manual transmission only - has 220Nm of torque at 1,500rpm. It outputs 122g/km of CO2 (125g/km for Grand Scenic) and achieves 52.2mpg (NEDC) (50.4mpg for Grand Scenic).

These figures result in a reduction in CO2 by 7g on Scenic and 11g on Grand Scenic compared to the previous petrol units.

This new petrol engine block, coupled with manual and EDC dual-clutch automatic transmissions, is available in a variety of power ratings from 115bhp to 160bhp. It incorporates several recent Alliance-developed innovations, including Bore Spray Coating, a cylinder coating technology from the Nissan GT-R engine, which improves efficiency by reducing friction and optimising heat transfer.

The Scenic and Grand Scenic are the first Renault models to benefit from this new petrol engine produced at the Renault factory in Valladolid, Spain. Orders in France and Europe are now open and deliveries to customers are scheduled for mid-January 2018.
