Toyota’s next-gen ICE: Efficiency leap for combustion engines. Here’s how

Toyota has unveiled new, in-development internal combustion engines (ICEs) that are designed to be more efficient than current offerings. These engines, which include 1.5-litre and 2.0-litre four-cylinder options, feature a shorter piston stroke for a more compact design, optimizing airflow and boosting overall efficiency. Toyota’s Chief Technology Officer, Hiroki Nakajima, credits the development work on the hydrogen-powered Mirai for advancements in engine heat efficiency. These engines are expected to be versatile, running on gasoline, biofuels, hydrogen, and synthetic fuels, and will be available in production cars around 2027. This move contrasts with Nissan’s focus on electric vehicles, but only time will tell which strategy will be more successful in the changing automotive landscape.
