Continental's has launched series production of the first car turbocharger with an aluminum turbine housing. Integration of the unit in the three-cylinder gasoline engine for the MINI Hatch has been ongoing since spring 2014.
"Aluminum in a car turbocharger construction constitutes a real milestone," says Wolfgang Breuer, head of the Engine Systems business unit of the Powertrain division. "With this lightweight material, we are saving 1.2kg of weight per turbocharger while simultaneously reducing costs and achieving system benefits."
