BMW to expand TwinPower Turbo tech to 4, 3-cylinder engines
Earlier this year, BMW unveiled the new 2011 BMW X1 powered by a 2.0L 4-cylinder TwinPower Turbo engine. The company now says that it will expand the use of its TwinPower Turbo technology to other 4-clyinder and 3-cylinder engines.
Expanding the use of the TwinPower Turbo technology to range of gasoline and diesel engines is a part of BMW’s commitment to cut average CO2 emissions by another 25 percent by 2020. CO2 emissions in BMW vehicles were reduced by 30 percent in 1995 and 2010.
In the 2011 BMW X1, the 2.0 4-cylinder TwinPower Turbo engine produces 245-hp and 258 lb-ft of torque.
4-cylinder BMW engines will come to the United States by the end of 2011.
