Tata Motors develops a new 3.0l diesel engine prototype
Tata Motors is working on a new set of engines exclusive for future passenger and commercial vehicle line up. It has now been revealed that Tata Motors’ Engineering Research Centre (ERC) in Pune has developed a new 3.0 litre diesel with four cylinders arranged inline, featuring common rail fuel injection technology.
Probably after gathering intensive test data from its test partner like Jeyam Automotive in Coimbatore, they will use it on its existing vehicle range that currently uses an older 3.0 litre diesel engine. Then Tata might launch its next generation set of revamped or new vehicles powered by this all new diesel engine.
The similar 3.0 litre diesel Tata has powering its utility vehicles, is also a four cylinder inline arranged one. Vehicles presently carrying this engine are Sumo Gold, certain Xenon variants, Tata’s pickup range of wheeled machinery and some of Tata 407 light trucks.
It is to be noted that Tata Motors exhibited three of their futuristic cleaner engines at Delhi Auto Expo 2014 in February. The exhibition included a 3.8 litre Sequential Gas Injection (SGI) TCIC CNG engine, a 5-litre new gen dual fuel engine(CNG, diesel) and a 2-cylinder 0.8 litre all aluminium common rail diesel engine with turbocharger and intercooler.
