Microwave Pulse Ignition To Save The ICE?

It seems that, as more and more car companies pledge allegiance to the electric car and that cities plan to ban access to their centres to fossil-fuel-powered cars, more and more new technologies claiming to enhance the internal combustion engine’s efficiency pop up.

There’s one story out there about someone developing a water-based fuel but the one that’s caught our attention is Microwave Pulse Ignition, presently under development by MWI Micro Wave Ignition AG of Empfingen, Germany.

2020 Porsche 911 Deep Dive : What’s really new about the 992?

The advantages to this system are huge and there’s one aspect we think is absolutely brilliant. First, the technology requires lower combustion temperatures, in both petrol and diesel engines, which reduce nitrous oxide emissions by up to 80%. Second, it can reduce fuel consumption by up to 30%. And lastly, the technology can be retrofitted to current production engines.

Is this not fantastic!?!

Discussions for mass-production are already underway with some Chinese and Korean carmakers. The presence of MWI will make its “real-world” debut in the Porsche Supercup, which involves the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup cars. As we all know, racing is the greatest testbed for nearly all automotive innovations.

We’re going to keep an eye on this one.
