Mazda will release an “eco-friendly” ICE with an efficiency of 56 percent

Engineers of the company announced the development of the engine Skyactiv-3, the emissions of which will be a quarter less than other internal combustion engines.

Mazda reports that work on creating the engine is already underway. The Skyactiv-3 efficiency is planned to approach 56 percent – in this case emissions should decrease by a quarter.

It is not yet reported how Mazda specialists plan to achieve such efficiency, but the developers plan to release the first such ICE not earlier than 2019 – it is at this time that the production of the Skyactiv-X engine is scheduled, while Skyactiv-3 will appear much later.

Despite the obvious advantages of the engine, the cars with ICE will still pollute the air more than cars with electric drive. Nevertheless, internal combustion engines will not disappear at once, so Mazda’s efforts to reduce emissions are still commendable, although in some countries even they will not be “clean” enough.

In France, for example, more than 90 percent of electricity is already produced without the release of C0 2 into the atmosphere, and European Union officials are gradually tightening the laws for car manufacturers with internal combustion engines, increasingly preferring electric cars.
