One standard Omega 1 engine weighs only 35 lb (16 kg) and produces an output of 160 horsepower 170 pound-feet of torque. The company says its innovative engine's design also allows multiple engines to be stacked together, increasing the output. While this design isn't likely to prevent the ongoing push towards electrification — Canada and Norway, for example, have recently announced bans on ICE vehicles — it may well help internal combustion technology, which has been so reliable for over a century, stay around just a little longer.

The Konisegg Freevalve is also extremely clean, very efficient, gets built on existing production lines and uses far fewer parts. But it's been ignored by the car manufacturers who seem to think their existing (pretty poor) offerings are enough to see them through the next 10 years. By the time we reach 2030 the market will be Tesla and a lot of cheapo Chinese cars. The traditional ICE car makers will be significantly reduced if not gone entirely. What's really sad is the likes of Rolls Royce and Bentley which could go electric very quickly are doing nothing about the issue. OK the Bentley SUV is a tarted up Audi Q8/Etron but that's rubbish anyway.

Engine power car are already last century. Anyone with the money is no longer interested in petrol.

If you can afford a new Rolls Royce (actually a tarted-up BMW), you can afford to have a Tesla revamped and get a totally bespoke drive. Tesla cars are already 10 years ahead of the mainstream industry. Those saying they'll be making their first EV by 2030 will already have gone bust.
