Founded in 1987, Swissauto's core capabilities are in development, prototyping and manufacturing of internal combustion engines. The high-performance, four-stroke Weber engine that Polaris uses in several current snowmobile models was developed by Swissauto.

Polaris acquired the powersports portion of Swissauto and will continue to operate in the current Swissauto facility located in Burgdorf, Switzerland. The automotive division of Swissauto was not involved in this acquisition and will continue to operate autonomously.
