-- Efficient, Reliable, Energy-Saving

"Engine of the Year" award, presented by China Automotive News and China Internal Combustion Engine Industry Association together, is the "Oscar" for the motor engine circle, and has attracted numerous car manufacturers since its birth in 2010. Hawtai Motor's OED483Q (2.0L) diesel engine was recognized as the "Engine of 2013" under sedan diesel category at the 2013 China International Internal Combustion Engine Industry Development Forum and 2013 Annual Engine Award Ceremony held on September 11. Being efficient, energy saving, and reliable evidences it to be China's apex for internal combustion (IC) engines.

Mr. Xing Min, Vice Chairman and Secretary-general of China Internal Combustion Engine Industry Association, presented the prize to Fan Jun, Vice President of OED Powertrain Group and President of OED Powertrain Institute. At the same time, the 2013 Annual Conference of International Internal Combustion Engine Industry Associations was unveiled. This most prestigious conference for the IC engine industry brought together 30+ IC engine industry leaders and 150+ industry leaders, winners, and media from China, EU, U.S., Japan, and India to witness this moment of glory together.

Ideal Green Diesel Engine Supported by Italian VM Technology

The winner OED483Q (2.0L) diesel engine is developed by OED Powertrain Group, a subsidiary of Hawtai Motor. Based on the clean diesel engine technology imported from VM in 2006, it assimilates the world's latest technologies for green engine. Later, it is designed again to meet China's actual conditions and user demands, Hawtai developed the product, bringing its technical merit, reliability and applicability to a new high. It now features little environmental impact, low fuel consumption, strong power, and high torque. It delivers a maximum power of 110kW, and a top torque of 310 Nm, 50% higher than that of gasoline engines, while consumes nearly 30% less fuel. So, what are the secrets of this engine that "represents China's best internal combustion engine technologies and delivers efficient, fuel-saving, and reliable performance"?

First of all, it comes with Variable-geometry Turbocharger (VGT ), which is rarely seen in similar engines. VGT can change the charging intensity in all conditions, and greatly improves the combustion efficiency in different ranges of rotation speed, while CRDI (Common Rail Direct Injection), a latest core technology can help it for a balance between strong power and enhanced fuel economy. Compared to gasoline one, it costs 30% less fuel, and can cover 40% distance using the same fuel during long-distance travel. In addition, the application of Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) helps it to cut carbon dioxide emission by 25%, and other pollutants way less than SUV with gasoline engines. It can meet Euro IV standard for emission (Euro V also available after upgrade), while it outputs a torque 50% higher than that of gasoline engines.

As we know, reliability depends on low failure rate and durability. OED483Q has a relatively low rotation speed, which reduces the wearing of engine parts. At the same time, the diesel engine has not high-tension ignition system and throttle valve body. This explains why OED483Q has an extremely low failure rate, and can serve for up to 850,000km. This also evidences that diesel car, compared to gasoline one of similar price, costs less for after-sales maintenance and repair, and is better in cost performance.

 

OED Clean Diesel Engine Wins Rave Comments Worldwide

The prize must give the credit to OED diesel engines' popularity at home and abroad. OED has delivered remarkable market development results this year, said Fan Jun, Vice President of OED Powertrain Group and President of OED Powertrain Institute. OED has cooperated with dozens of motor manufacturers like BAIC, SAIC MOTOR, SGMW, ROEWE, LIFAN and JM besides Hawtai. SGMW alone purchases 300,000-400,00 engines from OED. Military vehicles which require high power and non-flammable fuel are an another huge potential market for diesel engines.

In fact, OED targets not only the Chinese market for its diesel engines and vehicles. Given high production cost, VM chooses to purchase Hawtai clean diesel engines and sell them back to Europe. Just like the European market, the Russian market also sees a high popularity of diesel-powered engines. OED diesel engines feature high torque and strong power, while consumes less fuel for better cost performance. What's more important, they are upgraded to avoid difficult engine start in cold weather, and therefore are popular in countries and regions like Russia and Angola.

 

Clean Diesel Becomes A Primary Approach to Pollution Control in China

As air pollution becomes a growing problem, people are warned of air pollution control. The rocketing car population is now a target for all. Controlling exhaust gas emission of cars is a pressing need. The not yet ripe new energy vehicles are not enough to cope with air pollution. By contrast, clean diesel already popular in overseas countries may become a primary solution to China's pollution.

"The award issued to OED is a good news for both the industry and the market." said Fan Jun, Vice President of OED Powertrain Group and President of OED Powertrain Institute. From the perspective of the whole industry, clean diesel energy and OED have been recognized by the industry. Green and low-carbon now indicate the development trend of China's internal combustion engines. Clean diesel power, more mature than new energy and traditional gasoline power, will definitely become a backbone for energy saving and emission reduction for internal combustion engines and even the entire automobile industry. "The recognition and recommendation of industrial insiders make common consumers know clean diesel engines better, and they may start to turn to diesel cars of better fuel economy, high torque, and less environmental impact. At the same time, manufacturers will input more in developing and promoting diesel products, and clean diesel engines will be seen not only in SUV and MPV, but also sedans."

As initial success is seen in promoting clean diesel engine, with its efforts being recognized by both the industry and market, Hawtai is now more committed to a path of green, clean diesel power. As China is vigorously encouraging passenger cars to use diesel, Hawtai is now embracing the perfect opportunity.
