– TSI record earns eminent endowment for eighth uninterrupted time
– Also wins desired “Best New Engine Award” for TSI engine with
  active cylinder government (ACT)

The 1.4-litre TSI petrol engine from Volkswagen wins “Engine of a Year Award” for eighth uninterrupted time in a 1.0 to 1.4 litre banishment category. This creates a 1.4-litre TSI a many successful engine in a 15-year story of this general engine record competition. In addition, Volkswagen perceived a desired “Best New Engine Award” for a TSI record in multiple with involuntary cylinder deactivation (ACT). This endowment recognises a best engine growth of a past 12 months.

Since 2006, Volkswagen has perceived a sum of 13 trophies from a “Engine of a Year” jury for a constantly extended 1.4-litre TSI engine with a inner nomination EA 211 – 8 category victories, dual altogether victories, dual “Best New Engine” awards and one “Green Engine of a Year” award. The committee, that is done adult of 87 general trade journalists, has given a TSI record a ancestral fibre of victories. At a same time, Volkswagen is rising into a new epoch of engine prolongation with a latest creation – a TSI with ACT cylinder deactivation.

The Wolfsburg-based association was a world’s initial manufacturer to deliver active cylinder government (ACT) in a TSI four-cylinder final year – a record that until afterwards had been some-more informed in vast eight- or twelve-cylinder engines. Active cylinder government done a entrance in a Polo and Golf 103 kW / 140 PS 1.4 TSI. Temporary shutoff of a second and third cylinders – in and with an careful character of pushing – reduces fuel expenditure by over 0.5 litres per 100 kilometres.

Even with dual cylinders a excellently offset 1.4 TSI runs usually as sensitively and with low quivering as with 4 active explosion chambers. All involuntary switchover processes take place within one camshaft rotation; depending on engine speed this takes usually 13 to 36 milliseconds. Accompanying interventions in ignition and stifle valve processes well-spoken a transitions.

Altogether, a components of active cylinder government import usually 3 kg. Their actuators, a camshafts and their temperament frames are integrated in a cylinder heat; dual low-friction orientation revoke missile friction. Important to know: usually with a TSI judgment – petrol approach injection and turbocharging – is cylinder deactivation even fathomable in a form being implemented today.

Compared to a predecessor, fuel expenditure and CO2 glimmer values of a TSI engines were reduced to 9 per cent in partial also by such measures as shortening inner friction, obscure weight and optimising thermal management. The assets intensity is as most as 15 per cent in and with a innovative active cylinder government (ACT) feature.

Volkswagen is a tellurian personality in charging strategies for engines with approach fuel injection, and to date it has constructed over 3.8 million TSI engines during 5 prolongation sites worldwide. The 140 PS TSI with involuntary cylinder deactivation (ACT) is now accessible in a Polo and Golf. Today, in Stuttgart, a dual awards were supposed by Dr. Rüdiger Szengel, Head of Volkswagen Petrol Engine Development, and Hermann Middendorf, Head of Basic Development for a EA 211 in Volkswagen Petrol Engine Development.
