The principal products are the STEYR M1-“Monoblock” engine family which is the result of a long development process that was started by Steyr-Daimler-Puch in the 1920s. The STEYR M1 engine is a turbocharged Diesel engine with high pressure unit injectors with two stage injection nozzles, providing up to 2,000 bar injection pressure. It is a compact and light engine designed to be operated with Diesel, kerosene or Maritime Diesel fuel.
Adapted versions of these engines are used in various boats and military vehicles. Automotive and military applications are, for instance, AM General’s HMMWV (M16, 135 kW), Panhard’s VBL (M14, 95 kW), Hägglund’s Bandvagn 206S (M16, 145 kW), UROVESA’s URO VAMTAC (M16, 135 kW or M14, 85 kW), BAE Systems’ RG-32M LTV (M16, 200 kW), Force Protection’s Ocelot (M16, 160 kW).

STEYR Hybrid Drive System is a diesel-electric parallel hybrid system. It allows a clean and silent propulsion within a harbor because the boat can be driven purely by its electric motor. The electric motor can also be used in a ‘boost’-mode to support the diesel engine in order to achieve better acceleration
