UK-based Cox Powertrain’s new 300hp diesel outboard, the CXO300, has successfully achieved EPA Tier 3 approval.
Emissions regulations are constantly evolving, so it was imperative that Cox designed a clean-burning engine to ensure its ability to meet current and evolving emission standards for the CXO300 to receive approval from the agency.
“We developed a diesel engine with a much lower carbon footprint than an equivalent gasoline outboard. So far, those who have joined us on sea trials have commented favourably how quiet, smooth and clean the engine is,” says Joel Reid, global sales director.
This recognition is another important achievement for Cox who is committed to delivering a long-term development program of ground-breaking and sustainable diesel outboards to a wide range of high demanding users.
Production of the CXO300 started in May at Cox’s UK-based headquarters in Shoreham-by-Sea. The first outboards destined for the New Zealand market are due to arrive in August www.sportsmarine.co.nz
