Mazda introduces HAZUMI concept along with new 1.5-liter SKYACTIV-D diesel

Green Car Congress

This compact and lightweight clean diesel engine is designed for combustion efficiency, just like the larger displacement SKYACTIV-D 2.2. The advent of stricter emissions regulations leads to a delay in combustion until after TDC (with a lower cylinder pressure and temperature), although this causes fuel economy to worsen. The result is cleaner combustion with low NO x and soot emissions. It can thus do without NO x aftertreatment and still meet emissions standards globally.
