Meteor Power was one of half a dozen companies invited to the Houses of Parliament yesterday to discuss our plans for a high performance compact petrol hybrid engine and demonstrate our mock up to show just how small our innovative new design was going to be.
35 cm x 30 cm x 16 cm
300cc & 90 kW (120 hp)
400 hp per litre
60 g/km CO2
From our research we believe our engine to be half the size and well over twice the power of any of the competition.
Our goal is to be able to deliver the same performance as a top of the range petrol sports motorcycle with a third of the CO2 emissions and half the weight.
There is a long way to go yet, this two year project is likely to cost in the region of £2M once the sophisticated controller and power management and distribution electronics have been developed.
