ADVANCED AUTOMOTIVE POWER SYSTEMS, PART 2: A DIESEL FOR A SUBCOMPACT CAR

System analysis studies have shown that Diesel engines can be an alternative to spark ignition engines even in subcompact cars. According to some optimistic estimates, the share of Diesel engines in the total market may reach 25%, so that Diesel engines might well supplement the existing range of spark ignition engines. During the period from 1970 to 1990, the significance of all individual objectives whose demands are not favorable to the Diesel will decrease, whereas the significance of objectives favoring the Diesel will increase. /GMRL/
