mahindra jeeto’s engine gives 37.6 kmpl milage! why company not installing this engine to a passenger car or a van?
The reason behind not installing the Jeeto’s engine into a car is because it has been made with the purpose of weight carrying and transport. The engine has enough power but it lacks the top speed factor. A car with a top speed of 50 kmph would not be a practical option indeed. Also, the engine is rough when compared to the engine being used in the cars. It produces a lot more noises and vibrations than a normal car engine. This would have kept the quality of the drive low every time. The mileage does not include any extra weight on the Jeeto whereas making it a car would have put some extra weight onto it, with 4 more passengers than it has been counted for Jeeto. Also, the provision of AC would have made the car feel low on power and low again on the mileage factor.
I personally think that the single cylinder engine is not suitable for car, may be will not be useful while crusing on highways.
