Bosch and Mahle to develop turbochargers

  • 31-Mar-2008 06:56 EDT
Robert Bosch GmbH and Mahle GmbH have agreed to set up a 50/50 joint venture to develop, manufacture, and market exhaust-gas turbochargers. Set to begin in April 2008 pending antitrust approval, Bosch Mahle Turbo Systems will be headquartered in Stuttgart to develop and manufacture turbochargers for gasoline and diesel engines. Production is planned for 2010. Engine downsizing is a driver of the partnership, turbochargers being one of the key technologies for achieving reduced fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. Bosch brings its experience in gasoline direct injection and common-rail technology for diesel engines, while Mahle will share its expertise in high temperature-resistant turbocharger components and its subsidiary Mahle Powertrain the development, design, and application of turbocharged engines.
