Lightweight, modular 1.5L engine that’s hybrid-ready with excellent low-end torque and drivability.

This lightweight, modular, turbocharged engine offers many of the benefits of our award-winning 4-cylinder architecture in a smaller 3-cylinder frame. It combines excellent power and torque response with world-class fuel efficiency. The compact, simplified design makes the engine suitable for a range of applications. It can fit P1, P2 and P3 hybrid architectures and is suited to plug-in and full hybrid installations. Optimised low-friction combustion keeps emissions, noise and vibrations low.

Key features:

  • 200 bar high pressure fuel injection lowers fuel consumption and emissions
  • Precise variable valve timing (VVT) optimises power generation, performance and fuel economy at all engine speeds
  • Low inertia turbocharger improves response giving very low time-to-torque
  • Roller finger followers and lash adjusters in the valve system reduce friction and fuel consumption
  • The integrated exhaust manifold and water pump ensure faster heat up and low noise levels
