Toyota tests ammonia engine with 90 percent less CO2

Toyota and Chinese GAC are looking for ways to keep the internal combustion engine alive. A discharge may be ammonia.

As Boosted has told , the engine that burns ammonia is under development. It is a four-cylinder case that can become an alternative to the combustion of hydrogen.

In any case, Toyota's Chinese partner, GAC, claims that ammonia's biggest challenge has been solved. Namely that a lot of energy is wasted.

– We have lost the challenge that ammonia is difficult to burn quickly and thus use as fuel in passenger cars, says Qi Hongzhong, an engineer in GAC's development department, to English Autocar .

The engine was already shown at a trade fair in the Chinese city of Guangzhou last year. According to GAC, the 2-liter engine produces 163 horsepower.

The question now is whether the technology is commercially sustainable. But the Chinese actually think so already. Conversely, Toyota plays on more horses.

The Japanese, together with Subaru and Mazda, have promised to throw a considerable amount of billions into the development of the internal combustion engine on a general level. This means, among other things, that Mazda breathes more life into the Wankel engine.

It even appears from a press release that Mazda cannot deny that the new development of the Wankel engine leads to one or more sports cars. Read more about it here .

Something else is the fate of the combustion engine itself. Because maybe Toyota isn't in that much of a hurry to research alternatives to bio and synthetic fuel.

Dutch Pieter Nota, who until last year was part of BMW's board, expects the board in Brussels to change its position on the current ban on the internal combustion engine from 2035 already within 2 years.

– A new EU Commission will, I suspect in any case, decide on a postponement or adjustment of the ban no later than 2026. It's just inevitable, I think, he says in the National Auto Show podcast.
