    That kind of configuration with cylinders and fuel delivery system are usually used with compressed natural gas and/or compressed natural gas + hydrogen.
    Under CAFE rules compressed natural gas vehicles will have a incentive multiplier for compliance purposes of 1.6 in MY 2017 and phase down to a value of 1.3 in MY 2021, same as plugin hybrids. So one CNG car sold will count as 1.6 cars sold.

    Without protection shield the system looks a little bit like this mounted under a car (that is a CNG Fiat Multipla)

    This is another configuration used in Europe a crossover or SUV without the 4x4 system.in the photo a bifuel CNG/gasoline Fiat Panda, same architecture as Fiat Panda 4x4). Same configuration could be used for example for a bifuel Jeep Renegade / Fiat 500X.

    The new system appears to have two advantages. First, it's higher up so it's less vulnerable. Second, it's faster to install since it's made and tested as a module.

    Some interesting patents from FCA (all capital text since I made paste and copy)

    (WO2015179464) MULTI-MODE MODULAR ELECTRICALLY VARIABLE TRANSMISSION
    https://patentscope.wipo.int/search/en/detail.jsf?docId=WO2015179464

    (US20150231686) METHOD FOR FORMING A SHEET MADE OF AN ALUMINUM ALLOY INTO A COMPONENT OF COMPLEX SHAPE, PARTICULARLY A MOTOR-VEHICLE COMPONENT
    https://patentscope.wipo.int/search/en/detail.jsf?docId=US151422063

    (US20150231685) METHOD FOR MANUFACTURING A CAMSHAFT FOR AN INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINE BY EXPANDING A TUBULAR ELEMENT WITH A HIGH PRESSURE FLUID AND SIMULTANEOUSLY COMPRESSING THE TUBULAR ELEMENT AXIALLY
    https://patentscope.wipo.int/search/en/detail.jsf?docId=US151422062

    (WO2015059639) FUEL ELECTRO-INJECTOR ATOMIZER FOR A FUEL INJECTION SYSTEM FOR AN INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINE
    https://patentscope.wipo.int/search/en/detail.jsf?docId=WO2015059639
    This one is a fuel injector that can be used in diesel engines to reduce NOx and particulate formation.

    Not surprisingly, the diesel one is from Italy. I haven't looked at the others yet...

    I know this is an old patent from Dumbler's time.. FCA still hold the patent as of Dec 03-2014..
    Is it ever going to happen? How is it different from Ford's Power Stroker?

    TIDBIT: Believe or not, before the days of Subi, Dodge has an earlier boxer design engine patent. Nice to see this post again. LOL

    Rev-matching without gear or clutch position sensors

    Abstract - Rev-matching techniques that do not require a gear position sensor or a clutch position sensor are provided for a manual transmission of a vehicle. The techniques include predicting an intent of a driver to shift gears of the manual transmission based on whether the vehicle is accelerating or decelerating; predicting a shift of the manual transmission from a current gear to a different target gear based on the predicted driver intent; and detecting a trigger condition indicative of the predicted shift of the manual transmission based on a position of a clutch pedal configured to control engagement/disengagement of a clutch of the manual transmission. In response to detecting the trigger condition, a torque request for the torque generating system is modified to obtain a modified torque request, and the torque generating system is controlled based on the modified torque request.

    "MOTOR-VEHICLE SUSPENSION SYSTEM OF THE MACPHERSON TYPE, INCLUDING A TRANSVERSE LEAF SPRING"
    20170021686 MOTOR-VEHICLE SUSPENSION SYSTEM OF THE MACPHERSON TYPE, INCLUDING A TRANSVERSE LEAF SPRING

    "A vehicle suspension system of the MacPherson type includes a pair of wheel supports, and two shock absorbers each having a body bolted to a corresponding wheel support with a top end connected to structure of the vehicle. A leaf spring is set transverse to a longitudinal direction of the vehicle, and has a central portion connected to the vehicle structure, and two ends connected to the respective wheel supports. The leaf spring is made of a single piece having opposite ends each having a forked shape, with two prongs made of a single piece with the leaf spring, wherein each prong is connected separately to the corresponding wheel support. The suspension system does not include other connection elements between each wheel support and the vehicle structure so that suspension components can be assembled on the leaf spring prior to installation on the vehicle structure."

    "(EP3118089) UNDERBODY STRUCTURE FOR A MOTOR-VEHICLE"
    3118089 UNDERBODY STRUCTURE FOR A MOTOR-VEHICLE

    Same architecture -> easier and lower cost variation of width of the body of different vehicles sharing same architecture.

    "A method for the production of motor-vehicle structures, wherein an underbody structure (1) is provided including a floor structure (2), and two side members (17) that are welded to two longitudinal lateral edges of the floor structure (2). Each side member comprises an inner element (19, 20) of side member, welded to a respective longitudinal lateral edge of the floor structure, and an outer element (23, 24) of side member, welded to the inner element (19, 20) of side member. The method envisages the use of a common floor structure suitable both for motor-vehicle structures belonging to a first, lower, segment and for motor-vehicle structures belonging to a second, upper, segment. Each lateral edge of the floor structure (2) has for a prevalent portion of its length a flange (L) vertically bent upwardly and welded to an intermediate wall of the respective inner element (19, 20) of side member."
