Volkswagen's new 1.0-litre engine is really powerful

By Faiming_low on 12 May 2015 in New technology

Attached Image VW has brought two all new turbocharged petrol engines and the latest-generation TDI diesels for light commercial vehicles to the Vienna Motor Symposium. While the 6.0-litre W12 which produces 600bhp and 900Nm of torque, is the 'most economical twelve-cylinder engine in the luxury car segment', we are more interested in the 1.0-litre engine as it is more relevant to us.
 
Based on the EA211, this 1.0-liter 3-cylinder TSI is capable of generating 268hp and 270Nm of torque thanks to a monoscroll turbocharger and e-booster. For comparison's sake, it was only a couple of years ago when BMW's straight-six engine needed 3.0-litres to produce a similar amount of power! While it is not known whether this is engine is ready for production or still in the development phrase, it is heartening to know that the future for internal combustion engine is still bright...

In the future with the advancement of technology, maybe even the smallest engines from the smallest motor company will have more than 130bhp, then the Cat A COE will be redundant. Such retrogressive policy is one of the failings of try to recategorize the COE system, which would have been more balanced if it's pegged to the OMV instead.

Fully agree, simply $ catogory dont want to use, wasting Funds for policing 130HP cars and approvals, edging towards fraudulant policy, like favoring certain makes who benefits at tax payers expense

if its from VW, it must be good.

So how does this compare to the award winning 1.0 EcoBoost by Ford? On paper, the stats of the VW 1.0 TSI certainly look impressive.

Would be good if they paired it with a DQ200.

Good news is most probably not. The max tolerance for DQ200 is 250nm of torque. The new engine has 270nm. If they pair with DQ250, I might consider.

DQ250 is less problematic?

I'd take the 2 liter v6 version of this please.

Dq250 is the 6dsg wet gb

Dq200 is the 7dsg dry gb

Let's get it straight. Is this engine going to be German Engineering or Mexico Engineering?
