As noted in the story, this was a seven-year project to produce one compliant engine in the lab. It is not integrated into a vehicle or even tested on the road. It's an achievement, but far from "developing" an engine. It's a longer path to turn this into a viable engine a manufacturer can sell. Then the question becomes at what price? The first question a customer asks is not how low are the emissions of the engine, but how long is it going to be until this engine can pay me back for what it cost? The same challenge is facing electric and fuel cell truck developers.
