Honda working on 1-litre petrol engine; to be launched in 2017

August 17, 2014, 01:41 PM IST by Pratheek Kunder

Honda is currently developing a 1-litre petrol engine that will go under a new small car, which is expected to make its way to the Indian market in 2017. Once it is launched, this engine will become the smallest in its car range globally. 

This engine is currently being developed in Japan and is expected to set a new record when it comes to fuel efficiency. As per reports, this 1-litre may also be available in turbocharged version that will see cars like Jazz or even the City.  

After seeing two very big successful launches of the Amaze and the City, the Japanese manufacturer now wants to make a big difference in the small car category, where its Brio hasn’t been able to do good job, till now. This new car is expected to sit below the Brio and will compete with the market leaders like the Maruti Alto, Celerio and the Hyundai Eon. The company is however, declining any possibility of a small car development but as per the report, the company may use its third plant that will come up at Vithalpur-Manpur area in Gujrat. 

“Honda will look to set new records in petrol engine fuel efficiency. The development work for the new 1-litre petrol engine is going on in Japan. The engine will be fitted in its mini/small car range, while the highly fuel-efficient turbocharged versions could go into bigger cars like the Jazz or even City,” said a source to FE.
