Default Re: Tata to introduce sub-2 litre diesel engine

Mahindra had already developed a 2.0 L engine and tested it with their existing cars. This was done even before developing the 3 Cyl 1.5 Lit engine, as the 2.2 was running well, it was not put to use anywhere, with the supreme court order, they could bring it into the market quickly.

My opinion is that it is not the court or the government's job to decide car specifications, there are bodies like ARAI, VRDE etc which can put forth the recommendation. No 2.0 Lit + in Delhi - there may be a 2.0 Lit+ engine which is more cleaner and efficient than a 2.0 Lit one. Low tax on sub 4M, it is well known that a sedan is more fuel efficient than a hatchback on the same platform with the same power train. Older swift & Dzire or Etios and Etios Liva.

2.2 Dicor and mhawk were both developed by AVL. The basic architecture including the block bore/stroke etc, is identical. The difference is in the fuel pump, and timing mechanism. Tata uses Lucas Delphi and Mahindra Bosh. Tata uses timing belt and Mahindra Timing Chain. Other than there, I don't think there is any significant difference between these two engines.

The 2.2 is not a downzided M2DICR. The M2DICR was developed much later and it is just a MDI3200 TC with what Mahindra calls a low cost common rail system.
