Engine Engineering

Diesel and spark ignition engines – powered by conventional hydrocarbons as well as alternatives such as biofuels – are likely to remain predominant prime mover for passenger cars for years to come whether used as the direct source of motive power or as part of a hybridized powertrain. With nearly a century of successful engine design to its credit, Ricardo has the experience, tools and skills to provide class-leading engine products for all global passenger car markets. Through our continued investment in technology research we are also developing next-generation combustion technologies and new engine concepts, with the aim of delivering solutions for tomorrow’s ultra-low carbon emission and high thermal efficiency vehicles.
