PARIS -- Renault Group’s combustion-engine unit, Horse, will collaborate with the Dumarey group on new technologies, including a 2.0-liter turbodiesel engine, the two companies said.
The first project will be to develop a new version of the diesel engine that is currently used in Renault Trafic and Nissan NV400 medium commercial vans to ensure it meets Euro 7 specifications, a Horse spokesperson said.
Horse would have sales rights for future customers for the engine, the spokesperson said. Dumarey will integrate the diesel engines into other automakers’ vehicle platforms.
The agreement will “set the foundation for further potential future collaborations,” the companies said, including the use of hydrogen as a fuel for internal-combustion engines.
