Report: 8 Japanese automakers to team on basic engine research

19 May 2014

A report from Kyodo News cites “industry sources” as saying that Japan’s eight major automakers will partner on basic research into fuel-efficient and eco-friendly engines to minimize the cost of the research.

The eight—Toyota Motor Corp.; Honda Motor Co.; Nissan Motor Co.; Suzuki Motor Corp.; Daihatsu Motor Co.; Fuji Heavy Industries Ltd.; Mazda Motor Corp.; and Mitsubishi Motors Corp.—will focus on technology for reducing emissions from diesel engines among other areas, according to the sources.

However, the partnership will not extend to joint engine development projects, as the partners are also competitors, according to the sources.
