Propulsion Futures

Transport is on the cusp of a revolution.

To meet mounting economic and environmental pressures, we are being challenged to identify new ways of moving people and goods, while escaping our dependency on conventional fuel systems.

Discovering the propulsion system of the future

Propulsion Futures 1

Greener transport will be at the heart of this revolution, with the biggest game changer being electrified propulsion. Within this beacon, we are driving the discovery and translation of new materials, components and technologies to drive innovative electrified propulsion systems in this a new age of sustainable transport.
