The Infiniti Q50 has received a new 2.0 litre petrol engine that made its world premiere at the Guangzhou Motor Show today.
The new four-cylinder turbo petrol engine extends the Q50 powertrain options which currently include – depending on market availability – a3.7-litre petrol, an award-winning 3.5-litre hybrid and a 2.2-litre, four cylinder turbo-diesel to be launched in Europe this autumn.
The new petrol variant will be available to Chinese customers during spring 2014 before being made available in other markets.
The new four-cylinder turbo-charged engine uses direct injection with precise Piezo injectors to provide a power output of 211bhp while meeting the rigorous Euro 5 emission standards. The engine generates 236 lb/ft of torque from as low as 1250 rpm to allow flexible and efficient driving.
The new engine is the result of Infiniti’s collaboration agreement with Daimler AG. As with the 2.2-litre direct-injection four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine destined for Europe, the petrol version has been modified by the Infiniti engineering teams to ensure engine response is in line with Infiniti’s brand characteristics.
During the next five years, Infiniti plans to increase its vehicle portfolio by 60 percent and more than double the number of its powertrains.
