Striving to reduce vehicle weight in order to increase fuel economy, Honda focused on Friction Stir Welding (FSW) and developed a new technology for the continuous welding of steel and aluminum. This technology generates a new and stable metallic bonding between steel and aluminum by moving a rotating tool on the top of the aluminum which is lapped over the steel with high pressure. As a result, the welding strength becomes equal to or beyond conventional Metal Inert Gas (MIG) welding

This new technology contributes to an improvement in fuel economy by reducing body weight by 25% compared to a conventional steel sub frame. In addition, electricity consumption during the welding process is reduced by approximately 50%. It also enabled a change in the structure of the sub frame and the mounting point of suspension, which increased the rigidity of the mounting point by 20% and also contributed to the vehicle’s dynamic performance.

Honda Motor Co., Ltd. today announced that it has newly developed a technology for the continuous welding of the dissimilar metals of steel and aluminum and applied it for the first time in the world to the sub frame of a mass-production vehicle, a key component of a vehicle body frame.

Honda Motor Europe’s President, Manabu Nishimae, announced the 1.6-liter i-DTEC engine in the new Civic would deliver CO2 emissions of 95g/km*

About i-DTEC:-

This 1.6 liter i-DTEC turbo diesel engine will pump out 120 BHP of peak power at 4000 rpm along with 300 Nm of peak torque at 2000 rpm .

The new 1.6-liter i-DTEC engine is the first drive t from Honda’s new Earth Dreams Technology engine series which introduced in Europe.

This new 1.6 liter of i-DTEC turbo diesel engine                                

emits low CO2, which comes out to be 95 grams

per kilometer.

The 1.6 Liter diesel engine will arrive in the Honda Civic in late 2012 or early 2013

A smaller 1.2 which is possibly the scaled down variant of the same could power the Brio and Jazz.

 

Specification:-

 Max power:-  88kw (120PS)/4000rpm

Max.torque:- 300 Nm/2000rpm

Data:- 1596 cc
