BYD, a Chinese automotive manufacturer, has unveiled a turbo-charged, fuel efficient, all-aluminum-alloy gasoline engine designed and manufactured entirely in China.

The company has designed the 1.5L Engine and has paired it with a six -speed Tiptronic dual clutch transmission - coining the combo, the BYD Ti+DCT.

Ti+DCT is short for turbo-fuel-stratified, injection engine with dual-clutch transmission.

The company said that the engine is capable of producing higher power and offer smoother performance and superior fuel-efficiency.

BYD senior vice president Stella Li said the company has been working on the Ti+DCT technology for over 2 years and owns the intellectual property supporting this technology.

The Ti+DCT is a standard option on the BYD G6 1.5Ti sedan and is available as an option for other BYD 3 series models.

The company said that its Ti - turbo-charged, fuel-stratified, all-aluminum-alloy, injection engine improved maximum power with minimized fuel consumption and can match or beat the top foreign turbo technologies in performance specifications.

The 1.5 Ti engine produces 1.43 times more power than the same displacement engine and is equivalent to a 2.4 L gasoline engine and provides a maximum torque output of 240Nm / 1750-3500 RPM.
