Mazda is to launch the world’s first commercial petrol engine using compression ignition technology, which it claims will significantly improve fuel efficiency.

In compression ignition engines, the air-fuel mixture is heated and then compressed by the piston to the point at which it combusts spontaneously.

This makes it possible to use a much leaner air-fuel mixture, improving efficiency and reducing Although diesel engines work this way, the automotive sector has not been able to develop the technology for petrol engines.

Mazda’s new engine, known as SKYACTIV-X, will be launched in 2019, as part of the company’s long-term technology development programme, “Sustainable Zoom-Zoom 2030”. As part of this programme, Mazda hopes to reduce its average “well-to-wheel” carbon dioxide emissions to 50 per cent of 2010 levels by 2030, and achieve a 90 per cent reduction by 2050.
