Organisation profile

The Powertrain and Vehicle Research Centre (PVRC) conducts internationally prize-winning research, focusing on improving the efficiency and emissions of both diesel and petrol engines.

We conduct research that is systems-based on all aspects of automotive powertrain engineering.

Our research represents four decades of achievement and extensive engagement with the automotive industry.

We have made a significant contribution to the continued development of low and ultra-low carbon vehicles, reducing their CO2 signature and thereby enhancing fuel economy. We have played an important role in the vital task of making a cleaner environment.
