Tianjin Economic-Technological Development Area (TEDA) announced today that the brand-new ZR engine from Toyota was off the production line at the second plant of Tianjin FAW Toyota Engine Co Ltd. The engine, which meets the tail gas emissions set-out by the Euro III standard, and that has the potential to also meet the Euro IV standard, will be installed in Toyota's new Corolla, which will be off the production line at the third plant of Tianjin FAW Toyota Engine Co., Ltd. next month. The manufacturer of the ZR engine, Tianjin FAW Toyota Engine Co. Ltd., is the core parts manufacturer of Tianjin FAW Toyota Motor Co., Ltd. The ZR engine has the characteristics of high performance, low fuel consumption and low emissions, and it ranks top amongst its international peers in terms of motive power, fuel economy and environmental protection.
The environmentally-friendly engines are produced simultaneously and its output will reach 220,000 sets every year, which means the Chinese market is playing an increasingly important role for Toyota and the position of Tianjin Binhai New Area is undoubtedly more and more prominent in its strategy for the China market.
