CO₂ reduction for the masses.

From passenger cars to motorsport

Passenger cars

Ease of implementation combined with low cost (15-20 euro per g CO₂/km) means that our VCR technology can have a big impact on global CO₂ reduction. 

Scooter and motorcycle
(1 cylinder)

The hugely popular low cost motorcycle in Asia represents a massive market. These 1 cylinder motorcycles are extremely fuel efficient, with an average fuel consumption approaching 100 km/liter. Equipped with a VCR crankshaft the fuel consumption will reduce even further by 10 to 15%.

Motorsport

Optimized Compression ratio combined with an up to 8% longer expansion stroke compared to the intake stroke gives a 4% power and efficiency increase which can make all the difference on the track.

Why choose our VCR technology.

A lot of advantages against low production costs
