New engine design

Recommended Posts

still has the inherent problems of the Wankel engine - thermally inefficient (huge surface areas that are exposed to the combustion process and draw heat that should be converted to motion); dynamically challenged seals that require total loss lubrication with the inherent emissions issues that this has etc.

Overall I don't see any significant advances over, say, forced induction wankel - a point they make themselves in passing.  Its clever, but not world-changing.

Further, its too late.  It required fossil fuels.  This is a narrow niche market product at best.
