      The smartest Renault engine ever! Meet Energy TCe 90, Renault’s first 3-cylinder TC Petrol engine

      The Energy TCe 90 engine is the first three-cylinder turbo petrol engine developed by Renault. It boasts the best driving enjoyment/fuel economy equation on the market and its user cost is reduced. The Energy TCe 90 will be launched in the future Clio and will gradually replace the current TCe 100, without sacrificing driving pleasure despite its 25 per cent reduction in cubic capacity.

      What are this powertrain’s best assets ?
      • Class-leading petrol engine efficiency thanks to a downsizing to three cylinders: with friction reduced by 20% compared with a 4-cylinder engine architecture, the 3-cylinder pulser (combined with a longer exhaust phase) twice as powerful as that of an equivalent 4-cylinder engine, resulting in fuel consumption savings.
      • The best driving enjoyment/fuel economy equation, thanks to a very low inertia turbo (the lowest on the market) combined with Variable Valve Timing (VVT)
      • 90 hp at 5,000 rpm and torque of 135 Nm available across a broad rev-band, delivering smooth response from low engine speeds.
      • Fuel economy champion: fuel consumption and CO2 emissions are slashed by 25 % (in NEDC combined cycle) compared to the engine it replaces.
      • User cost is reduced: from -20 % to -50 % (depending on countries). In Germany, Portugal, or Romania for instance, the customer will pay less taxes reduced related to cylinder level, when buying a car. He’ll also spend less on gas and pay less taxes related to CO2 emissions (depending on countries).
      • The Energy TCe 90 delivers the market’s fastest airflow ‘tumble’ effect inside the cylinders. Combustion is virtually instantaneous and takes full advantage of the downsizing to three cylinders:
      • In terms of technologies, it features the Stop & Start technology, braking energy recovery, a variable displacement oil pump , thermo management, and a high tumble effect (for fast, stable combustion), oil pump and a Teflon®-coated timing chain, which help to reduce friction
      • finally, the engine’s harmonics-rich signature pitch that recalls the sound made by six-cylinder powerplants.

      Will this now replace the petrol engines in the Renault/Nissan in India?

      A "hot" version of the Clio would have given Renault some footfalls. The Duster is already doing that, but, a little more publicity never hurt anyone.
      Hot hatches have always fallen flat in our market, but the people who pick them up will be fans for life, and useful brand ambassadors.
      The Palio 1.6 being case in point. It didn't save fiat,but if anyone is going to remember fiat, it will be for the 1.6
      Has Renault done a full case study on this option, our have they rejected it outright? Would it be possible for you(@shoukat) to elaborate on the reason why that decision was taken?
