Combined with improvements to wing design, the new power plant will make the 8X up to 35% more fuel efficient than any other aircraft in the ultra-long range segment,

That's an achievement !

35% better efficiency is certainly not to be sniffed at. Could be a big factor in the decision making when buying a biz jet.
