MTEE at the Bloomberg New Energy Finance Summit 2017 in London

Since 2008, the Bloomberg New Energy Finance Summit (BNEF) has served as a forum for the discussion of energy issues by bringing together old and new key players who are involved in the energy industry. With nearly 2000 key decision makers from the business, finance and policy communities being present at the BNEF every year, it contributes to setting the agenda of new energy policies and to shape the general opinion on new energy topics.

We are therefore proud to be represented at the BNEF 2017. Our General Manager of the Turbo Division, Bas Bonnier, will participate in a panel debate on Tuesday the 19th of September with the topic “Automotive futures and diverging energy assumptions”. Together with spokespeople from companies such as BP oil mobility, Renault EV business unit and Chargepoint, Bas Bonnier will discuss the future of automotive and what role battery technology advances, range extenders and public charging infrastructure will play in the transition towards electrification.

Turbocharging has downsized the best engines of today

For the first time in 23 years there is no V8 engine on the list of Ward’s Auto’s 10 best engines, writes Ward’s auto;

Due to the progress of turbocharging technology, many 6 cylinder engines create enough horsepower and torque to substitute the 8 cylinder engines, writes Ward’s auto, which have slowly decreased in the past years. The same trend can be seen from 6 to 4 cylinder engines, and 4 cylinder engines are also dominating the market as well as Ward’s list of best engines. In fact, besides from 2 hybrid engines on the list, all other 8 best awarded engines are turbocharged, including 1 hybrid.

Mitsubishi Turbocharger and Engine Europe B.V. expect this trend to only continue further in the coming future, where more hybrid engines also will become turbocharged.

It has come to the attention of MHI that counterfeit turbochargers made to look like they were manufactured by MHI, which is not the case, are being circulated in China and other countries.

These counterfeits are not genuine MHI products, are not covered by MHI’s warranties and have not been made subject to MHI’s strict quality control, so for the safety of our customers, we ask that you please purchase genuine MHI products.

Please understand that MHI cannot accept any responsibility or liability whatsoever for any accident or breakdown resulting from the use of counterfeit third party products or their malfunctions. Please also understand that we cannot exchange counterfeits for genuine MHI products, nor can we repair or otherwise service such non-genuine third party products. We advise you to check the authenticity of any MHI turbochargers that are not purchased through your local MHI dealer. If you are in any doubt as to whether an turbocharger branded or sold as Mitsubishi turbocharger is a genuine Mitsubishi turbocharger supported by the MHI group, please contact your local MHI dealer.

We look forward to your continued use of genuine MHI products.
