Emissions, Performance and Design of UK Passenger Vehicles [link]Website  abstract   bibtex   
Consumer, legal and technological factors influence the design, performance and emissions of light duty vehicles. This work examines how design choices made by manufacturers for the UK market result in emissions and performance of vehicles throughout the past decade (2001–2011). Light-duty vehicle (LDV) fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and performance is compared across different combinations of air and fuel delivery system using vehicle performance metrics of power density and time to accelerate from rest to 100 km/h (62 mph, tz-62). Increased adoption of direct injection and turbocharging technologies helped reduce spark ignition (SI, gasoline vehicles) and compression ignition (CI, diesel vehicles) fuel consumption by 22% and 19%, respectively over the decade. These improvements were largely achieved by increasing compression ratios in SI vehicles (3.6%), turbocharging CI vehicles and engine downsizing by 5.7–6.5% across all technologies. Simultaneously, vehicle performance improved, through increased e...
