Renault introduces Energy dCi 130 diesel
7 April 2011
Renault is unveiling its new range of “Energy” engines, combining performance, driving enjoyment and fuel economy; the first to reach the market is the Energy dCi 130. Featuring new technologies covered by some 15 registered patents, this 130 hp (97 kW) 1.6-litre diesel is the most powerful on the market for its size, while peak torque stands at 320 N·m (236 lb-ft) at 1,500 pm.
Combined with eco-technologies such as Stop and Start and regenerative braking, it cuts fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by 20%, while running costs are also much lower.
Scenic and Grand Scenic are the first Renault models to be equipped with the Energy dCi 130, resulting in CO2 emissions of 117g/km, equivalent to combined-cycle fuel consumption of 4.5 liters/100km (52.3 mpg US).
