Honeywell Turbo Technologies expects to launch more than 100 turbocharger applications involving more than 20 new technologies in 2014. These new applications will serve Honeywell’s global customer base with gasoline, diesel, natural gas and hybrid powertrains in both light vehicle passenger and commercial vehicles.

Honeywell is a global leader with more than 500 current turbo programs in various stages of development in its customer pipeline, which are all expected to come to market in the next few years. Honeywell turbos, including the recently announced Honeywell VNT® turbo helping power the Fiat 500L and its 1.6L Multijet II diesel engine, make significant contributions to auto makers balancing improved fuel economy, lower emissions and enhanced performance.

“Our Honeywell technology roadmap is contributing to Fiat’s current and future engine strategies for fuel efficient and fun to drive vehicles. The consistently large number of turbo launches we have each year reflects the value that downsizing and turbocharging brings to auto makers in response to global demands for improved fuel economy and emissions without compromising performance,” said Honeywell Transportation Systems President and CEO Terrence Hahn.
