"47% increase in power, a 45% increase in torque and a 15% reduction in fuel consumption."

 

"...no longer need parts such as the throttle body, camshaft, cam drive, timing gear and cover, wastegate, pre-catalytic converter systems and direct injection systems, helping to further reduce size, weight and complexity."

 

and in China car 1st!

This is a great time for engine innovation.

 

For years it was the same old design but

 

now really new innovative engines are

 

being designed.  [thumbsup]

Soon this engine will be in china cars like chery. It will be duplicated and renamed to something like FreeVelva to show it is a knock off china imitation.

It's interesting. It doesn't require the camshaft, cam-drive system. Timing chain/belt is no longer an issue but the sensor on each intake valve....hmmmm... I'm not so worried about the electronics and actutator coz  similar systems are found in gearboxes. But plenty of sensors....not to my liking.

 

As co2 emissions gets stricter it's a matter of sooner car makers will adopt such cam-less engine tech.

Soon we will go back to using steam engines. That's provided the oil cartels don't murder the inventors of the next modern steam engine.

 

It's interesting. It doesn't require the camshaft, cam-drive system. Timing chain/belt is no longer an issue but the sensor on each intake valve....hmmmm... I'm not so worried about the electronics and actutator coz  similar systems are found in gearboxes. But plenty of sensors....not to my liking.

Good engine that allows transition to e-car. Runs cooler, less engine oil, less parts, smaller engine, less space needed less breakdown.

The cam-less thingy is not talking about rotary engine lah.  It is still piston engine but dont use camshaft for opening and closing valves.  I got confused like you did before I watch the video.

Sadly you are correct and its a chicken and egg situation. People wont buy an electric vehicle until its convenient to be able to use it. Govt wont invest in re-charging infrastructure until people have the cars that need it...  :a-bang:

 

In fact Singapore with its small land area and dense urban traffic conditions is an ideal environment for electric vehicles and its a shame the Govt has missed the opportunity to innovate in this area, I guess maybe they are too addicted to the revenue from the 56cts per litre petrol tax they can put towards fixing the MRT every day..

 

Even if we are too small to have an indigenous car industry, the opportunity to innovate and develop the electric motors and drives and be at the forefront of battery technology is there. Every HDB car park should have say 5 electric car bays as a standard feature with the electrical risers and trunking put in place for th whole car park, so that these can be easily expanded as and when needed.

 

With the artificial turnover in car ownership created by the COE system and the right infrastructure and incentives in place, it would be surprisingly quick for people to make the switch, when they realise that a 300km range in an island only 40km from end to end is actually not a limitation at all... and electric cars can be suprisingly fun to drive.. :-)
