Koln, 29. Marz 2010 – toyota will be true "in the field of alternative drives" work together with mazda. The license agreement signed today in japan provides for providing hybrid components of the toyota prius, which mazda wants to combine with its own internal combustion engines. Specifically, this apparently means that mazda relies on a power-branched hybrid and does not like many competitors on a parallel hybrid. Mazda will not refer to the hybrid components, including the planetary gearbox, but by toyota, but by the suppliers of the world-growing car manufacturer. Among other things, the gearbox was allowedmanufacturer aisin.
Combustion engine of mazda
Both companies do not give any further details price, but the interface seems to sit between hybrid components and internal combustion engine. Mazda wants to combine the system with its so-called sky engine technology, which is currently still in development. "Sky" is mazda’s name for modern otto and diesel engines, the 15 or. 20 percent more economical than comparable variants in the current mazda motor program. In the gasoline engine, among other things, direct injection, high compression and friction reduction should contribute, in the diesel above all an optimized combustion process.
In conjunction with the hybrid drive is certainly to be expected the use of the gasoline, which should be introduced into the market as the sole drive in 2011. The new mazda hybrid vehicle is to be developed and manufactured in japan and be offered there from 2013. According to a report of the financial times however, mazda hopes to offer the car later on other market.
