The new in-line four and six-cylinder engines will respectively provide power ranges of 100-125 kW and 156-200 kW.

The new engines are targeted at a range of off-highway and industrial applications ranging from large fork-lift trucks, to generator sets and construction equipment including earth movers.

The company said that the engines are equipped with the common-rail fuel injection system the automotive variant meets Bharat Stage IV emissions levels while its off-highway counterpart, which uses a mechanical fuel system, will be capable of achieving the CPCB II emissions norms that are applicable from 2013.

The new engine family now includes two, three, four and six-cylinder variants following the launch of the first two-cylinder model in 2010.

Ricardo India president Mayank Agochiya said this is a milestone achievement in Cooper's strategic plan to become a world class engine manufacturer and vehicle maker.

"Ricardo and Cooper have been working together for over 55 years, and we continue to work in close cooperation to regularly keep coming up with innovative and path breaking products," Agochiya said.
