Report: Honda, Toyota, Nissan, and others to collaborate on fuel economy tech

Automakers Toyota, Honda, Mazda, Honda, Nissan, Subaru, Mitsubishi, Suzuki, and Daihatsu, were once perceived as vigorous competitors with each other (and still are). But as automakers are being strangled with intense regulation from worldly governments, automakers have been forced to breakdown walls in order to team up for sustainability. Echoing this notion is a new report from AutomotiveNews, who learned that these Japanese automakers formed a coalition to help develop technology to improve fuel economy.

In the report, the automakers came together to create the Research Association of Automotive Internal Combustion Engines along with a grand total of $20 million. Additionally, the Japanese government granted half of that cost to the automakers to help support the cause.

All of the listed automakers will work together to research and develop new technology to both cut costs and to improve fuel economy technology as well as thermal efficiency.
