Honda Amaze owes much to Honeywell Turbo Technologies in getting the most fuel efficient car in India with 25.8 kmpl

Posted on May 22 2013 by Jayashankar Menon

Honda Amaze, the most fuel-efficient car in the country at 25.8 kmpl, owes much to the US-based Honey Technologies, a global leader in automotive turbocharger development, which has designed and built the turbocharger for the car.

According to a PRNewswire report, the wastegate-type turbocharger, delivered by Honeywell is used in Honda Amaze 1.5L i-DTEC diesel engine, powering the highly anticipated first compact sedan in India and the first car from Honda's stable with a diesel engine.



David Paja, Vice President and General Manager, (China and India), Honeywell Transportation Systems said: "We are proud to be the turbocharger technology partner and supplier for Honda Amaze. The base technology of this turbo is completely developed out of India, as we are committed to using our global leadership position to develop turbos specifically for the Indian market. What is more, our innovative technologies help our patrons deliver best-in-class products such as Honda Amaze, offering fuel economy and reduced emissions without compromising on the performance front".

Elaborating on the technology, the report said that a turbocharger used exhaust gas otherwise wasted out the tailpipe to drive a turbine which in turn operated a compressor feeding increased volumes of fresh air into the engine. Subsequently, this improved the engine combustion process reducing emissions and improving fuel economy, at the same time, delivering the torque and horsepower auto makers are looking for in a vehicle.



India Growth Scenario


Honda AmazeTurbocharging continues to grow in India given the need for an integrated technology approach for controlling vehicle emissions, in conjunction with more environmentally-friendly technologies aimed at evolving fuel quality standards, noted the report.

Nitin Kulkarni, Vice  President, Customer Management, Honeywell Turbo Technologies pointed out: "Turbochargers offe a combination of fuel-savings and performance at an affordable price in contrast with other technologies, thus making them an attractive propositon for all vehicle types, right from sub-compact cars, full-size luxury sedans to pick-up trucks and everything in between".

Export hub

Honeywell not only supplies its turbochargers to many local and global OEMs present in the country, its plant in India also serves as an export hub for customers across the world. Furthermore, Honeywell turbos help global engine platforms achieve EU-IV, EU-V and EU-VI emission standards, concurred the report.


Milind Godbole, Managing Director for Honeywell Turbo Technologies India, while elucidating about the Indian market, said: "We established our manufacturing plant in Pune in the western Indian state of Maharashtra back in 2005, and have ramped up operations to include product development and testing activities for both global and local automotive applications at its Technology Centre in Bangalore, the capital city of the south Indian state of Karnataka. Today, India also serves as Honeywell's global platform development centre for small and medium-sized turbocharger applications, a rapidly growing part of the Indian automotive industry".

Honeywell is a Fortune 100 diversified technology and manufacturing player, serving customers worldwide with aerospace products and services, control technologies for buildings, homes and industry, turbochargers and performance materials. Based in Morris Township, New Jersey in the US, Honeywell's shares are traded on the New York, London, and Chicago Stock Exchanges.

Each of its four businesses – Aerospace, Automation and Control Solutions, Performance Materials and Technologies, and Transportation Systems – has major presence in the country.

India commitment


Honeywell's India commitment is pronounced in five state-of-the-art manufacturing and engineering operations for its automation, turbocharger, and refining businesses, besides the five global centres of excellence for technology development and innovation.
