Enigma – Rotary Piston Engine

Big power in a small package

Enigma’s system is three-times smaller and five-times lighter than an equivalent capacity V8 engine, providing significant weight saving – ultimately reducing the carbon emissions. It features just six moving parts, making it reliable and easy to maintain.

High power hybrid transmission – Project highlights

  • Developing an opposed rotary piston engine
  • Technology used as a range extender for hybrid heavy-good vehicles
  • Able to run on a range of different fuels
  • Lightweight compact design
  • Our Technology Developer Accelerator Programme (TDAP) is helping develop strategy and business plans, as well as providing financial support for R&D, supply chain development and market entry
