BRP announced today its Evinrude E-TEC engines are compliant to new Australian emissions standards.

Australian exhaust emissions standards for outdoor power equipment and marine engines were finalized in December, 2017. The standards will be phased in to allow the industry time to transition.As of July 1, 2018, new high polluting outdoor power equipment and marine engines, such as conventional carbureted two-stroke outboard engines, can no longer be imported into Australia. By July 1, 2019 only clean-technology outdoor power equipment andmarine engines can be supplied to the Australian market.

"Evinrude direct injection outboard engines have, on average, a 90% reduction in emissions and over a 50% reduction in fuel consumption compared to conventional carbureted two-stroke engines," said Jeff Wasil, engineering manager in Emissions Testing, Certification and Regulatory Development for BRP-Evinrude. "We've been delivering our clean-technology E-TEC and E-TEC G2 engines to Australia and the rest of the world all along. However, other major brandsstill choose to sell their older-technology engines in Australia. Nearly 50% of the outboard market in Australia is still comprised of conventional carbureted two-stroke engines. Some engine manufacturers may struggle to get engines to Australia that meet thesenew standards while maintaining the low weight and performance capabilities Australian consumers have come to expect from these older technology engines."
Evinrude ETEC G2 outboard engineshave the lowest total exhaust emissions of all combustion outboard engines and are the most fuel efficient marine engines available. They consume up to 20% less fuel and produce up to 30% more torque than competitive outboard engines, while providing the most effortless user experience in the industry. Furthermore, Evinrude ETEC engines meet all stringent exhaust emissions standards for outboard engines worldwide.
