Technologies are evolving day by day with newer and more efficient ones surpassing the older ones and with so much of happenings taking place across the world most of the car manufacturers are aiming at providing fuel efficient technologies.
Global Majors like Mercedes Benz, BMW, Honda, etc have some of the world’s best technologies with them but are unwilling to introduce them in the Indian Automobile Sector because of their high cost, but Ford (American Major) is all set to bring in Eco-Boost technology in India since the brand sees the need of it in the Indian market.
Ford has figured the Indian Automobile sector as one where this type of technology can be extensively used and which carries great potential for evolvement and efficient usage of it, not initially but over a period of time.
Ford Eco-boost Technology is a family of 6-cylinder and 4-cylinder Turbocharged and Direct Injected gasoline engines capable of furnishing three most important and significant requirements of present time namely Fuel Efficiency, Engine Performance and Emissions.
With the new technology the above purposes will get solved in an effective way as:
- It will make the engine fuel efficient with nearly 20 percent of fuel improvement.
- It drastically reduces the amount of CO2 emissions by 15 percent
- Improved Engine performance will be experienced
Importantly the technology is solely suitable for small displacement engines and as 50 percent of the Indian Auto Sector comprises of small cars, it would be ideal to introduce it in our country. Another fact is that the technology is quite affordable for most of the Indian customers and will benefit them in a way or the other.
