Renault manufactures its first three-cylinder engines at Mioveni

Renault will start manufacturing the first three-cylinder engines in its history in Romania, according to officials of the Renault Group, quoted by Hotnews. The new petrol engines will replace the current engines of 1.6 liters MPI (85 HP) and 1.6 liters 16V (105 HP), bearing the code names K7M and K4M, sources with Renault Technologie Roumanie (RTR) told 0-100.ro. The new type H4 engines will be manufactured at the Dacia plant of Mioveni and will be delivered to car plants operated by the Renault-Nissan Alliance. They will equip vehicles sold all over the world, Dacia and Renault officials emphasised. Renault will also use European money in the production of the new engines. “These new petrol turbo engines will also equip the new models of Dacia, instead of the old series non-turbo, or will complement them in the commercial offer on certain markets,” said RTR sources. The move to turbo petrol engines is unavoidable, because of the strict carbon regulations all car makers must comply with, added the sources. Renault says the new engines will equip 85 pc of its cars in 2015.
