Mitsubishi lines up DI diesels

MITSUBISHI is set to launch two direct injection diesel engines (DID) to complement its GDI direct injection petrol unit. Both the petrol and diesel direct injection engines use similar technology, cutting development costs, and share the same advantages of increased power output and reduced emissions.

The 2.5- and 3.0-litre diesel units will first appear in Japan next year, arriving in Europe soon after. Mitsubishi claims the new engines will reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 30%, boost fuel consumption by 30%, and increase power by between 20% and 30% compared to traditional diesel units.
