The engine is a very important part of car, and characteristics of car are especially important for engine. There are currently 6 major car engine producing countries in world, let's see how many you know.
The engine of world's first car was invented by Germans. It can be said that Germany has a very long history of engine development and production. Combined with fact that Germans hold very high standards in mechanical design, it is difficult to achieve same level of manufacturing technology, even if engines they produce are disassembled for research and imitated.
There are currently three well-known engine brands in Germany: DEUTZ engine, Mercedes-Benz MTU engine, MAN engine.
When it comes to engine power, we can't ignore Japan. Automobile engines made in Japan are second to none in world. It can even be said that level of production has almost reached perfection. Compared to German engines, it is even worse. .
Another feature of Japanese engine is integrity. When removing another part of his engine, entire engine will be damaged, and it will not even be possible to restore it to its original state. That is why it is difficult to copy a Japanese engine. Honda, Toyota, Mitsubishi, Nissan and Suzuki are famous Japanese engine brands.
The United States is a well-deserved global manufacturer of automotive engines. Engines produced by well-known companies GM, Chevrolet and Ford are among top ten engines in world. Unlike Japan and Germany, American-made engines combine power without sacrificing fuel economy.
Companies like Cummins and Caterpillar specialize in engine manufacturing, have a long history of research and development, and even engines made by Caterpillar were once considered number one in world.
Italian-made diesel is most famous, it is even called "the realm of sports cars in world." The world's finest luxury cars such as Ferrari, Lamborghini and Maserati are made in Italy and engine is no exception.
The diesel engine produced by VM, most famous Italian engine company, is best known in Europe. Companies such as Mercedes-Benz, Ford and Volkswagen work closely with Italian engine manufacturers.
World renowned Volvo is Sweden's largest company and one of companies with longest history of research, development and engine production spanning over 120 years.
It is worth noting that Volvo engines are not limited to automotive industry. Volvo is engaged in engines for heavy equipment, trucks, cars and ships, and all engines produced meet world standards.
Birthplace of global industrial revolution, Great Britain has achieved unrivaled achievements in automotive industry. All of world's luxury car brands Rolls-Royce, Bentley and Jaguar Land Rover are made in UK, but were later acquired by other countries, leaving UK no longer having its own car industry.
But that doesn't mean that British engine technology has declined. The advantages of UK in automotive sector are still not available to most countries. BMW, Cummins, Ford, Jaguar Land Rover, Honda, Toyota, Ford, these are most famous car companies in world, most of their engines are made in UK.
Even though the UK has lost its car industry, they have always been proud of their engines.
