The Environmental Protection Agency on Thursday accused Fiat Chrysler of installing secret software that allowed more than 100,000 of its diesel vehicles to emit pollutants above legal levels. The case has echoes of one against Volkswagen, which on Wednesday pleaded guilty to criminal conspiracy as part of a widespread emissions-cheating scheme. In both cases, the government focused on software in vehicles that can adjust emissions levels.

Under the bonnet customers can enjoy the newly developed 1.5-litre four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine as one of the power options. The new VW Golf?[[Further more---BRITISH Formula 1 team Manor Racing is on the brink of collapse after entering administration.

I guess it's a place staffed by 'white coats' no one wants to do grubby stuff like going out and finding customers. Why haven't they gone out and acquired a 'dirty' VW diesel and bolted a V charge to it to see how much it cleans it up? There are going to be a lot of cheap diesels in the USA pretty soon, a $2000 fix might be quite welcome. Bit of a shocker that small diesel cars are actually dirtier than modern big trucks. There should be a huge after-market for retro fitting clean tech. I doubt that TRK has even made a phone call to the likes of VW or BMW. The public have no idea that TRK tech exists, no wonder there is no demand for it.

I think they're going to carry on massaging the numbers - add a few electric and hybrid motors with fantasy fuel figures, and the fleet average comes down, giving them more freedom on the gas guzzlers than they really should have. Of course the situation isn't helped by people insisting on massive SUVs when modest hatchbacks would satisfy 99% of their needs perfectly satisfactorily. But I still don't understand why trk don't market v-charge themselves as an add-on for sports cars. I see Lotus are likely to drop their current supercharger and go to turbos - why can't trk do a deal with them? They could do their own manufacturing in those sort of numbers - a few thousand at most - and then sell the kit for other underpowered sports cars like the Toyota/Subaru GT86/BRX, or the Mazda MX-5.

Looks like it's in the dustbin. Quite ironic given the scandals regards widespread emissions cheating by major OEMs. Almost 20 years of tinkering in the shed, but as yet no one wants the product.

"We will offer customers of our compact cars and the V-Class an improvement of their cars’ emissions behavior on a voluntary basis. The entry-level engines of our compact cars include one engine variant from Renault (OM 607) in the context of our cooperation with Renault. "That engine from Renault is adapted to the requirements of our Mercedes-Benz compact models. We have been informed about the software update by our cooperation partner and will of course offer this service to our customers on a voluntary basis. As a result, we will achieve a significant improvement in emissions this year." ????

AdBlue is a high quality urea solution that is easy to use. AdBlue is the registered trademark for AUS32, or Aqueous Urea Solution 32.5% that is used with the Selective Catalytic Reduction system (SCR) to reduce emissions of oxides of nitrogen from the exhaust of diesel vehicles.--- Expensive!

not good - obviously the difficulty for TRK is that it is a pony with just a couple of tricks and it is trying to perform them in the public gaze, with not much money there could be dozens of similar developments going in within Tier 1s that are, to all intents and puropses, invisible if they fail and with no recourse to shareholders if they fail who knows, for instance, how long ZF works on n+1 gears in a gearbox before the investors even hear about it?

I believe that the delay has been engineered (excuse the pun) These type of technologies have their place and time.Not that far off now . Presently, Oil is King in the automotive world generating wealth for Governments in tax revenues and for some time yet. How are they going to get their share in taxes from Electric Vehicles? Patience required here .

A drive shaft is just that, the V charge is run from a pulley off the either the crank or cam shaft. Presumably these small engines will all need a pressure device of some sort, but Ford et al will have options in how they are driven.

Ford’s 1.0-L triple will add cylinder deactivation in 2018 Also included in the system are new engine mounts, drive shafts and suspension bushes, a new camshaft chain and metal-injection-molded valve rockers. ---- "New drive shafts" ! to accommodate V Charge --Perhaps

Ollivers Anvil, the sad thing is that TRK has been nothing but a litany of failed widgets, possibly quite good widgets, but none that anyone wanted to buy. All these things disappear without explanation, but usually with hints that things are still going on behind the scenes, no doubt so that snouts can be kept in the trough. To be fair the current incumbents have not been as greedy as the previous liars, and have not carefully crafted optimistic impressions as was the stock in trade of previous incumbents. I am though expecting perhaps Univance to buy TRK on the cheap, as Uni has put a lot into developing potential manufacturing for IVT technology, it would make sense for them to own the IP.

V charge is probably all that they have left in the ammo box. I guess the OEM's are sitting it out waiting for TRK to fall off the perch, then all of a sudden a 'new' technology will appear in all sorts of machines. So JCB presumably have put this on the back burner. Perhaps they too hope TRK will fall off the perch? Perhaps TRK needs to mothball itself and only come out from under the covers for fully paid development work for interested customers.
