Daimler and Renault-Nissan announced Sept. 28 one new engine and one new transmission project added to previously agreed projects, as part of a partnership the two OEMs formed in 2010. The new engine project is a jointly developed four-cylinder gasoline engine family co-led by Renault and Daimler. The direct-injection, turbocharged engine will feature state-of-the-art technology in a compact package, according to the companies. They expect to jointly manufacture the new engines, which will debut in Daimler, Renault, and Nissan vehicles in 2016. In the new transmission project, Daimler grants Nissan a license to manufacture automatic transmissions using Daimler´s latest technology for Nissan and Infiniti vehicles starting in 2016. Nissan subsidiary Jatco is planning to manufacture the gearboxes in Mexico. The new transmission will feature stop-start and by-wire control of park and gearchange functions.
