A Fresh Approach to the Internal Combustion Engine
At Pinnacle Engines, we have utilized breakthrough engineering to create an entirely new ultra-efficient engine technology based on a four-stroke, spark-ignited, opposed-piston, sleeve-valve architecture.
We have patented, designed, built, tested and installed engines into commercial vehicles, then put them through rugged on-road acceleration tests, chassis dynamometer tests, durability tests, anechoic chamber noise tests, ARAI certified rolling road fuel economy tests and bag emissions tests.
Our engine performance has been demonstrated in vehicles being readied for production. We are delivering outstanding results… in vehicles, on the road, right now.

Our Engines and Controllers
100-125cc Single-Cylinder Engine
This engine design began in 2011 in conjunction with an Asian OEM partner for a scooter application. It is the simplest, entry-level deployment of Pinnacle architecture. Design includes an advanced ignition controller, an electronic fuel injection system and a two-way catalytic converter.
Lean Burn Control Systems
Pinnacle's unique operating characteristics improve engine performance through the incorporation of a knock sensor and advanced algorithms for precise and efficient lean burn. Pinnacle maximizes software in order to minimize hardware, making our controls lower cost.
Multi-Cylinder Automotive Engines with VCR
Utilizing our patented, low cost variable compression ratio system, this engine is suited for both automotive and industrial applications and capable of incorporating VCR, VVT, EGR systems under multi-fuel operation. The first engine in this series is currently in development with a major auto OEM.
Portable Gensets: 2-5kW
Pinnacle is currently in development on a family of high-efficiency portable gen sets in the 2-5kW range. India will be the first market for this product.
