Honeywell Turbos Boost More Than 25 New Vehicle Launches at Geneva Motor Show

    Geneva (ots/PRNewswire) -

    - Latest Turbo Technology Redefines Performance, Fuel Efficiency and  Emissions Reduction

    Honeywell (NYSE: HON) announced that its turbo technologies are featured on more than 25 vehicles launched at the 79th International Motor Show of Geneva. The company's engine boosting systems are specified in new applications ranging from 1.4 to 6.0L diesel and gasoline engines, reflecting the global trend towards turbocharging as a key enabling technology in delivering both performance and fuel efficiency.

    Among the key gasoline launches, Honeywell's new advanced gasoline turbocharger technology will equip the revolutionary Fiat 1.4L engine in its Multiair version. The Honeywell MGT 14 features a totally new wastegate design that exploits new innovations in materials, bearings and aerodynamics.

    On the diesel side, the new Jaguar XF 3.0L V6 engine stands out, aided by the latest sequential boosting technology from Honeywell. This system comprises a unique combination of a small VNT(TM) turbo and a small free-floating turbo coupled with a patented sequential control technology. It helps Jaguar to produce a staggering 600Nm of torque on its new XF 3.0L V6 diesel model while reducing fuel consumption by 12% and CO(2) emissions by 10% compared to its predecessor. In addition, it allows the Jaguar V6 engine to achieve performance levels of current V8 diesel engines.

    Also launching at Geneva is the Cayenne Diesel, the first ever diesel passenger vehicle from Porsche. Boosting this high-performance Porsche engine with torque of 550Nm@2000rpm and peak power of 176kW or 240bhp@4000rpm is Honeywell's third generation VNT(TM) turbo that features Rotary Electronic Actuation (REA) as well as a low-nickel turbine housing. The Honeywell turbocharged Porsche diesel engine reduces fuel consumption by up to 30% compared to similar gasoline engines with the same power while at the same time maintaining a sports-car feel and low-noise profile.

    More and more vehicles with small-displacement engines are adopting Honeywell's third generation small VNT(TM) turbocharging technology, such as the latest Toyota 1.4L Urban Cruiser equipped with Honeywell's GTB12, a third generation VNT(TM) turbo featuring REA and low-nickel turbine housing. The Toyota 1.4L diesel engine delivers a torque of 205Nm@2000rpm and peak horsepower of 66kW or 90bhp.

    "Whether it's gasoline or diesel boosting, Honeywell is at the forefront of providing turbo technologies that deliver superior performance for engines big or small," says Alex Ismail, President, Honeywell Turbo Technologies. "The fact that we are working with all the major global car makers is testament to our ability to support customers in every corner of the world as they seek to maintain their competitive advantage."

    As the leading turbocharger developer in the world, Honeywell expects the global turbocharger segment to grow from 30% of the overall automotive market to more than 38% by 2013 as automakers look to boost engines to help increase fuel-efficiency and reduce harmful exhaust emissions without sacrificing performance.
