Powering Sustainable Futures.

For over 100 years, Ricardo has been using engineering and research and development expertise to help global vehicle manufacturers innovate and improve the efficiency and performance of their products to bring them to market quicker and cheaper without compromising safety or quality.

OEMs within the global transport sector are looking for solutions to the world’s most complex mobility challenges, particularly the acceleration towards a sustainable zero carbon future.

So, now Ricardo is delivering transformative, environmentally sustainable technology innovation, as the trusted global engineering services partner for clean, efficient, integrated propulsion and energy solutions for global transport customers, leveraging its digital backbone and investment in data science capability to help customers maximise their efficiency and effectiveness.


We are working with transport sector OEMs to help them to develop solutions to address the biggest challenges of reducing greenhouse gas and tailpipe emissions, while moving goods and people around cities more cleanly and efficiently, and reflecting consumer requirements for more sustainable mobility solutions.


Our focus extending range, delivering faster charging, maximising fuel economy, minimising energy storage costs, size and mass, and reducing total cost of ownership to enable OEMs across all transport sectors to bring their products to market quicker, enhance vehicle efficiency and performance, and ultimately accelerate the adoption of electric and hybrid vehicles.


As a direct response to the growing complexity of propulsion and energy systems. We advocate a ‘system of systems’ approach which uses smart integration to achieve more than the sum of its parts by considering propulsion, application and infrastructure concurrently with the design integration of a supplier or new technology into a full system.


Through our digital backbone and investment in data science capability we help customers maximise their efficiency and effectiveness through the exploitation of data and actionable insight. We are accelerating not only our own digital transformation, but also that of our global customer base across transport sectors.
