Focus: Gasoline

Forthcoming stricter emissions regulations will focus on the level of NOx coming out of the tailpipe.

That means that turbocharged gasoline engines will require new technologies to remain compliant. 

We speak to experts at Continental, Bosch and BorgWarner about some of the systems we can expect to see in the not too distant future. 

Meanwhile Delphi is looking at the benefits gasoline direct-injection compression-ignition technology could offer.

We also speak to AVL which is adamant that what will be required for certain are flexible, modular systems. Developments are starting to pick up speed rapidly
