  1. Engine Optimization for Electrification: The focus is on creating engines that seamlessly integrate with electric drive units. These power-trains will enhance performance, efficiency, and overall driving experience.
  2. Carbon-Neutral Fuels: The engines will be designed to run on various carbon-neutral (CN) fuels, including e-fuel (synthetic fuel), bio-fuels, and liquid hydrogen. This commitment aligns with global efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
  3. Decarbonizing Internal Combustion Engines (ICEs): While electrification is essential, ICEs will continue to play a role. The collaboration aims to make existing engines more efficient and compatible with CN fuels.

The Peoples Reaction!

Fans look forward to engines that blend the greatest features of electric drive units (ECUs) with the potent performance of internal combustion engines. A wider range of fuels gives customers more alternatives. Drivers will have the freedom to select fuel that is consistent with their beliefs, be it hydrogen, biofuels, or e-fuel. By working together, the supply chains and employment related to engine manufacture are secured for the future to come!
