French and Japanese automobile manufacturers, Renault-Nissan have decide to work on a common engine platform. The duo has reached an innovative solution for a common diesel and petrol engine platform.
The common platform is currently in advanced stage of testing. Their goal is to achieve maximum savings over a long period. In simple terms the common platform will share engine components that allow use of petrol and diesel.
There is a constant change in demand among buyers for petrol or diesel powered vehicles. With Renault Nissan's new innovation it will be easier for them to deliver engines without any hassles as most components will be shared.
It is being rumoured that this common engine platform is being developed by Hinduja Technologies. This is expected to be a small 1.0-litre engine that would be used for either petrol or diesel application by the French and Japanese duo.
Renault and Nissan were previously selling vehicles in India by almost change of their badge. They had promised that they would not cross-badge any of their future models. They will, however, use engines as it reduces the cost of manufacturing and increases profit for both.
They will begin test sessions soon and are focussing on the diesel mill primarily. Once the diesel mill is functional, it won't take much time to develop its petrol version. Both Nissan and Renault have always been in the forefront of innovations and this further proves it.
