An overview has been presented related to the advances in internal combustion engines (IC) for the future solutions of automotive industry. This review discusses as many current research areas as possible. This evaluation will be of great assistance to students, researchers, and enterprises working on the subject of IC engines. Moreover, there are numerous technological options for delivering environmentally friendly vehicles with low carbon emissions. This paper also examines the methods available as well as the use of technology road-mapping to plan for future manufacturer adoption. The low temperature combustion (LTC) technique is among the most sophisticated combustion technologies. Various LTC techniques like HCCI, PCCI, and RCCI have been discussed in detail. The results of the evaluation of LTC against conventional engines were provided in order to demonstrate both the strengths and shortcomings of each. The goal of this review article is to show new combustion approaches and how they may be utilized to increase the engine's thermal efficiency while lowering NOx and particulate matter (PM) emissions.
