    Rumorpile: Mazda's HCCI Engine To Be Detailed Later This Month, Debut In 2019 Mazda3

      Details about the new engine are expected very soon

    Back in January, we reported on the rumor that Mazda was planning to launch a Homogeneous charge compression ignition (HCCI) engine for the 2018 Mazda3. HCCI engines are unique as they use compression, not spark to ignite gasoline. This will improve fuel economy and emissions. But the thing about HCCI engines is that automakers will produce prototypes and say they'll be coming within the new few years, and then nothing happens.

    We have some new details about Mazda's plan to debut their new HCCI engine. According to Motoring, Mazda will debut the engine at a technology forum in Frankfurt later this month. Reportedly, the engine will feature spark plugs to ignite the fuel at low rpms. Compression ignition will take place at higher rpms.

    Following this, Mazda will be showing off a concept at the Tokyo Motor Show in October. The concept will preview the next Mazda3 and possibly feature the new engine. The next Mazda 3 is expected to be revealed next year as a possible 2019 model year vehicle.

    H'mmmmm

    I will watch this with interest as Mazda has had their Diesel misfire and so I have to wonder about a gas HCCI engine that based on the info to date would not be a true HCCI engine but a hybrid. So traditional spark plugs and spark to start and at low rpms but then HCCI at high rpms? Wish them the best of luck.

    HCCI in the past has always had sparkers to fall back on because the charge needs to be "just right" and that doesn't happen at start and supposedly drastic load changes.... just sayin.

    the '18 3 models have been on lots for a few weeks, but very limited news of other model's updates for the '18 MY. basically more safety tech lower in the tiers...

    • Not Irrelevant, he even says they might have to declare bankruptcy, that is very relevant to you bringing him into the discussion on Covid. He is distracted from doing the main job of running Tesla. Tesla Shares down 1/3rd this year alone and still dropping. Tesla Truck a no show even in Mule form Semi Trucks in mule form but years late already from delivery Auto line is delaying delivery due to of all things supply chain issues that he says they do not have compared to the Legacy OEMs. Vaccine is the thread here, but when one person throughs out a Narcissist that has problems focusing on the only job he has, running a company as he would rather be a rock or movie star due to his look at me attitude, yes that is the problem with Musk and why his paltry $5 million means little when he talks about solving world hunger? How about doing like the gates foundation spending billions to vaccinate children around the world to avoid having them go through what Humanity has already beaten. Let's also not forget that you yourself are not vaccinated as you have posted so why should it matter that he be praised for talking about covid rather than running the company he is employed to run?
    • We didnt win gold that year. (In 2018) We did win bronze.  Everyone is a winner, right? At least I dont drive a CUV... Anyway,  St Lazare didnt win anything that year because we were the reason they didnt qualify for the medal round.  In 2017, they won gold while we won bronze.  They were the reason why we played for the bronze medal.  In 2019, we beat ourselves and didnt make it to the medal round. They won Gold. In 2020, we could have won Gold but there was no medal tournament. Just games (Covid) and we were the best team in our league.   Last year we fell short in qualifying for the medal round.  Yup, our final game to qualify for a medal to determine if we play for bronze and we had to beat them. We didnt. They beat us thrusting them to the Gold game.  They won gold.  If we beat them that game, we would play each other for the bronze....    
    • xcept we also won a couple of times against them. In 2018 as the last time.  Just to say we dont always lose to them.  That bald dude is me.   My daughter is the 5th girl counting left to right. 3 coaches.  Myself at the right. Head coach to the right of me and the coach at the far right. This year we are two coaches. Myself and another dad.  we both share head coaching. we have a chance to win it all this year, including beating that rascal of a St Lazare team! 
    • LOL My arch nemesis    we keep losing to them. All else is someone trying real hard to troll...
