ETET and EDI Collaboration Will Drive the Future of Environmentally Friendly Vehicles

HONG KONG, May 8, 2012 – EnviroTek Engine Technologies (ETET), a leading developer of Internal Combustion Engines for environmentally-friendly vehicles, and Efficient Drivetrains, Inc. (EDI), a global leader in advanced high-efficiency PHEV and CVT solutions, announced a long term agreement to utilize ETET’s new world class EVT-90 1000cc engine in the EDI product line.

The new EVT-90 1000cc engine is lightweight (under 100 lbs), produces 80hp in mild tune, and is capable of producing up to 200hp in a turbo-charged version. It can achieve approximately 60 MPG in a compact car, while producing very low emissions. Performance in larger vehicles is equally impressive. When coupled with the EDI advanced hybrid technology, the EVT-90 will be capable of appreciably higher mileage, and powering a wide range of vehicles.

The narrow form factor of the EVT-90 (9.5 inches) is ideal for utilization in hybrid drivetrains that have multiple components, such as electric motors, clutches, and Continuously Variable Transmissions (CVTs).

Very high torque at low RPMs enables this engine to easily propel vehicles that would normally use a much larger and higher fuel-consuming 4-cylinder engine.

Andy Frank, CTO of EDI, and a leading industry authority on advanced hybrid drive systems said, “I believe that an engine with these characteristics has worldwide potential to provide the needed performance, as well as meet the inevitable, more stringent fuel and emissions requirements.”

This is a new class of engine that is recognized by major auto companies as needed to meet future fuel and emissions requirements. The EVT-90 requires less maintenance, has better low-end performance, and gets better fuel mileage than competitive products. The demand is expected to be in the millions.

“With its small size and high-efficiency, the new EVT-90 1000cc engine has the potential to be a high-volume engine for ETET and EDI,” said Ron Huch, CTO of ETET.

Testing on the new drive train is expected to begin in June at the EDI facilities in Dixon, California.
