    Fiat says its fuel-saving MultiAir technology is not for sale

    Alfa Romeo will offer MultiAir on the MiTo.

    GENEVA - Fiat considers its MultiAir variable valve timing technology a breakthrough application with the same potential impact of its 1997 common-rail diesel injection technology - but the Italian group will retain intellectual property right to the system.

    Fiat developed and patented common-rail engine technology but sold it to Robert Bosch in the early 1990's in the middle of a financial crisis.

    "MultiAir is available to other automakers as (complete) engines and as technology under license, but intellectual property for the system will remain within Fiat Powertrain Technology," said Alfredo Altavilla, CEO of Fiat Powertrain Technologies (FTP).

    Altavilla said MultiAir technology is part of the technical cooperation talks Fiat is current having with BMW Group and Chrysler.

    Rinaldo Rinolfi, FPT's chief technical officer, said MultiAir increases power 10 percent while decreasing fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by 10 percent.

    "For MultiAir, we preferred an electro-hydraulic valve actuation technology because it is cheaper than electromagnetic and electromechanical systems. It can also be applied to diesel engines," Rinolfi said.

    FPT hopes MultiAir technology will reduce nitrogen oxide emissions by up to 60 percent so that engines using the technology will not need a liquid additive to meet new Euro 6 emissions standards.

    Alfa Romeo will be the first brand to offer MultiAir on a 1.4-liter gasoline engine in its MiTo small car, starting in April.

    FPT and Alfa declined to disclose the added manufacturing cost or customer price premium for a vehicle equipped with MultiAir.

    MultiAir technology will progressively spread out on all Fiat engines. The next application will come in 2009 on a new 900c two-cylinder engine, which will equip mini- and small-segment cars.

    FPT last year built 2.9 million engines, generating 7 billion euros in revenue, of which more than 26 percent from outside clients

    “MultiAir” is launched on the Alfa Romeo MiTo

    Just a year before the celebrations for the Centenary and as ever a synonym of refined technologies and high performance engines, Alfa Romeo announces the marketing from September of the Alfa Romeo MiTo with 1.4 Turbo petrol MultiAir engines, the revolutionary technology developed and patented by FPT – Fiat Powertrain Technologies. The range of a winning model is therefore even broader, for a model which, since its launch to date, has seen 60,000 orders and is sold in 34 Countries throughout the world in 5 different continents.

    The new engines are an important "breaking point" from the current petrol engine scenario, just as was the case for the diesel Common Rail technology which saw its debut on the Alfa Romeo 156 in 1997. Just think that, compared to a traditional petrol engine with the same displacement, MultiAir engines ensure an increase in power (up to 10%) and torque (up to 15%), as well as a considerable reduction in consumption levels (up to 10%) and CO2 emissions (up to 10%), of particulates (up to 40%) and NOx (up to 60%).

    The heart of the MultiAir is the new electro-hydraulic valve control system which makes it possible to reduce consumption levels (thanks to direct air control via the engine suction valves, without the use of the throttle) and polluting emissions (thanks to the combustion control). What's more, an emblem of the concept of “downsizing”, the Multiair is a versatile technology, easily applied to all petrol engines, with a future potential development on diesel engines, too.

    The head of this revolutionary family is the MultiAir 1.400 16v turbocharged and aspirated engine which on the Alfa Romeo MiTo model will be available with 3 different power levels (105 HP, 135 HP and 170 HP) and combined with 5 or 6 gear manual gearboxes. While the first two are offered on all versions of the MiTo range, the third will be exclusively available on the special version called “Quadrifoglio Verde” (Green Four-leaved Clover), debutting after the launch.

    Made in Termoli (CB) at the FPT – Fiat Powertrain Technologies factory, the new MultiAir engines were designed from the onset of their development to enhance further the Alfa DNA selector, the device which makes it possible to adapt the personality of the Alfa Romeo MiTo to the requirements of the driver and the different road conditions. What's more, for the first time on the “most sporty compact car ever”, the Start&Stop system will debut - combined with the MultiAir engines. This system controls the temporary turning off of the engine and its subsequent restarting (for example when stopped at a set of traffic lights), keeping all the car's other devices intended for the passengers' comfort in operation.
