Infiniti_Q50

Όπως είδαμε και από την παρουσίαση του Lexus CT200h Facelift, το Los Angeles Auto Show και το Tokyo Motor Show δεν είναι οι μοναδικές εκθέσεις που γίνονται αυτή τη στιγμή στον κόσμο. Υπάρχει και το Guangzhou Motor Show στην Κίνα και εκεί αποφάσισε η Infiniti να παρουσιάσει τον ολοκαίνουριο, δίλιτρο, τετρακύλινδρο υπερτροφοδοτούμενο κινητήρα της που θα τοποθετείται κάτω από το καπό του Q50.

Ο νέος αυτός κινητήρας, έρχεται να προστεθεί στην υπάρχουσα γκάμα κινητήρων του Q50 που περιλαμβάνει σύνολα όπως ο V6 βενζινοκινητήρας των 3.7 λίτρων, ο 3.5 λίτρων υβριδικός και ο 2.2-λίτρων τετρακύλινδρος turbo-diesel. Χρησιμοποιεί τεχνολογία άμεσου ψεκασμού και πληροί τις αυστηρές προδιαγραφές εκπομπών ρύπων Euro5. Αποδίδει 211 άλογα στις 5.500 σ.α.λ. και 320Nm από τις (μόλις) 1.250 σ.α.λ. μέχρι και τις 3.500.

Ο κινητήρας είναι το αποτέλεσμα της συνεργασίας της Infiniti με την Daimler και θα ξεκινήσει να προσφέρεται από την άνοιξη του 2014, αρχικά μόνο στην Κίνα και στη συνέχεια στις υπόλοιπες αγορές.

INFINITI ADDS 2.0-LITRE TURBOCHARGED PETROL ENGINE TO Q50 RANGE

  • New four-cylinder powertrain unveiled at Guangzhou Motor Show
  • On sale in China from spring 2014; other global markets to follow
  • Powerful, economical, lightweight engine extends Q50 appeal
  • Another steps towards increased number of engine packages across Infiniti range

Guangzhou, China – Infiniti will add a turbocharged 2.0-litre petrol engine to its powertrain portfolio for the Q50 premium sports sedan. The engine had its world premiere at the Guangzhou Motor Show on 21 November.

The new four-cylinder turbo petrol engine will extend the Q50 powertrain options which currently include – depending on market availability – a3.7-litre petrol, an award-winning 3.5-litre hybrid and a 2.2-litre, four cylinder turbo-diesel to be launchedin Europe this autumn.

The new petrol variant will be available to Chinese customers during spring 2014 before being made available in other markets.

The new four-cylinder turbo-charged engine uses direct injection with precise Piezo injectors to provide a power output of 211bhp while meeting the rigorous Euro 5 emission standards. The engine generates 236 lb/ft of torque from as low as 1250 rpm to allow flexible and efficient driving.

The new engine is the result of Infiniti’s collaboration agreement with Daimler AG. As with the 2.2-litre direct-injection four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine destined for Europe, the petrol version has been modified by the Infiniti engineering teams to ensure engine response is in line with Infiniti’s brand characteristics.

The addition of the new turbo-charged engine further underlines Infiniti’s strategy to expand its product offerings overall as well as tailoring its model range to local customer requirements. During the next five years, Infiniti will increase its vehicle portfolio by 60 percent and more than double the number of its powertrains.

The world premiere of the new powertrain in Guangzhou also underlines Infiniti’s commitment to China, the world’s fastest growingpremium automotive market. A long wheelbase version of both the Q50 and the QX50 crossover, specifically designed for Chinese customers, will be built at the Xiangyang plant in Hubei Province; production is earmarked to begin in 2014.
