    "Technical details on the new engine are scant so far. Described as a 4-cylinder gasoline unit, with direct-injection and a turbocharger, it will supposedly be “compact” and show up in the first cars from all firms in 2016 at the earliest. "

    So it's "gas" as in gasoline - not LPG or CNG or biogas... So surely the engine isn't going to be all that revolutionary?

    Suppose the interesting point is co-operation between rivals. Or is it a case of "An enemy of my enemy (Toyota?) is my friend".

    Interesting (coincidence?) that it's Nissan and Merc that are joing the V8 (taxi) races next year!

    Cheers

    They are part owners of each other and this is a part of their common strategy.
