Mazda's rotary engine to double range for electric cars

TOKYO -- Mazda Motor plans to release electric vehicles equipped
with range-extending rotary engines in the U.S. and Europe in 2019,
bringing back a signature technology as it responds to tougher environmental
rules in key auto markets.

A gas-fueled rotary engine can generate power to run the motor in an
electric vehicle, letting automakers get by with a smaller battery or increasing
the distance the car can travel. Mazda in 2013 equipped a prototype electric
car with a rotary engine that doubled its range compared with a standard electric
compact. BMW offers a similar gas-fueled range extender for its i3.

The rotary engine, which uses rotors rather than the pistons seen in conventional
combustion engines, is small but powerful. Mazda released the world's first car
equipped with this unusual engine, the Cosmo Sport, in 1967. The automaker
ceased production of vehicles with rotary engines in 2012.

With California and other U.S. states adopting stricter quotas for zero-emission
vehicles next year and Europe tightening environmental regulations as well,
demand for electrified vehicles is set to grow. Mazda hopes to capitalize on this
trend with the new model, its first mass-market electric vehicle.

The new car, expected to be a compact, will likely be produced at existing
Japanese facilities. Mazda will determine when it will go on sale in Japan based
on local demand.

Mitsubishi I engine bay

Mitsubishi i is actually a kei car with a combustion engine in it which is quite different with Mitsubishi i-Miev which is fully power by electric, it is understand that Mitsubishi i have a variant of engine like 3B20 and 3B20T, we got an inquiry from India customer which is looking for the full set gasket on the 3B20T engine, though the deal didn't go through due to the high courier charge to sent a set from Malaysia to India.

Ever since then, I rarely hear anyone inquire on this model engine gasket which I heard Mitsubishi already stop their production on this model since 2012 (They start their debut at 2003 Frankfurt Motor Show and start the mass production on 2005).

It is indeed a very small car, until I found out the engine is actually sit at the back of the car and not at front in most conventional car.

It is known that Mitsubishi i-Miev is actually selling in Malaysia but I still not really known if this Mitsubishi i is actually on the road in Malaysia.

Nissan VQ25 NEO Di Rocker Cover Gasket

Recently there are some Nissan Cefiro owner change a VQ25 engine which they call NEO Di, actually not sure this VQ25 should be in the VQ25DE variant or VQ25DD variant, they car owner with this engine normally will encounter a difficulty to source one side of the rocker cover gasket in this V6 engine, as another side of rocker cover gasket is just same as other VQ25DE engine which found in Teana.

If you would say it is a VQ25DD engine which use in Steagea, the rocker cover gasket actually can't match for the Stegea model with this NEO Di model, but under the VQ30DD in Skyline V35 model, you may possible found one of their model is in such design.
