Arrow Fiatís Multiair engine wins Popular Science award

Just came across this news in the Official Fiat Fan Page(Facebook).

Quote from the Official Fiat Fan Page :

Quote:
The US magazine Popular Science awarded the MultiAir technology created by Fiat Powertrain Technologies with “Best of What’s New” prize. The engine has been introduced in the North American market thanks to the launch of Fiat 500; it consolidates its leadership in terms of innovation and environment respect because it cuts fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by up to 10%, while obtaining 10% more power and 15% more torque. In June this year, MultiAir already won the important award “Engine of theYear”.

Congratulations FIAT

Already FIAT is rocking on their MJD engine http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/indian...aon-plant.html (Fiat rolls out its 2,00,000th engine from its Ranajangaon plant.) & this is good to hear.

No wonder Tata is investing on air powered cars, probably, Tata-Fiat has a long term JV on the engine supplies.

Congratulations FIAT as they have already started working on highly fuel efficient engines, keeping the eye on on-going fuel crisis all over the world.
@ aargee,
I totally agree with you that Tata will be definitely looking forward to have a long-term JV along with FIAT so that their cars as well as their cars sales will get the benefit & they will also get some technological development in their R & D &the Engine development divisions,
I personally would like to see Tata's & FIAT's fitting these engines in the cars that they were selling in India as they are technologically well developed & fuel efficient engines, keeping the eye on going high & higher fuel prices in India.
Here is the link regarding the info on these MultiAir Engines from FIAT UK:

& this is the video from YouTube explaining how these engines works:

^^ thanks for the link.

What i could make out its like valve lift control used by many companies but more advanced. Does this only control the intake valves ? or exhaust valve is also controlled by this ?
