About EcoMotors

EcoMotors is commercializing the opoc (Opposed-Piston Opposed-Cylinder) engine for use in GenSets, commercial vehicles, cars, light trucks, aerospace, marine, agriculture, auxiliary power units, etc. This design creates an internal combustion engine family architecture that will run on a number of different fuels, including gasoline, diesel and ethanol. The opoc's opposed piston-opposed cylinder direct gas exchange operation provides the emissions benefit of 4-cycle engines, the simplicity benefits of 2-cycle engines, the power density of the less well known opposed piston engine, and the developments in computer and thermodynamics all tied together in a new engine architecture. It comprises two opposing cylinders per module, with a crankshaft between them, each cylinder has two pistons moving in opposite directions. This design configuration eliminates the cylinder-head and valve-train components of conventional engines, offering an efficient, compact and simple core engine structure. The result is an engine family that is lighter, more efficient and economical, with lower exhaust emissions.

Zhongding To Invest $200M In EcoMotors

Oct 23, 2015

Tweet Allen Park, Michigan-based next generation internal combustion engine maker EcoMotors has secured an undisclosed series D round of financing led by Chinese auto parts maker Anhui Zhongding Holding (Group) Co., Ltd., says a company announcement . Even though the total amount of EcoMotors' funding round is not disclosed, the company says that Zhongding has agreed to invest more than US$200 million in total. Zhongding has also agreed to finance and construct the first plant in Anhui province to manufacture EcoMotors' engines, which aims to be more efficient, cost effective, lightweight than traditional gas engines. "We believe that this game-changing technology will help solve some of the environmental challenges we face today by offering a more efficient and lower cost engine," says Xia Dinghu, chairman of Zhongding Group. The new plant will have a capacity to produce an estimated 100,000 engines per year. Zhongding plans to supply EcoMotors' engines to power generation sets, as well as off-road and commercial vehicles. Zhongding is currently EcoMotors' largest customer. The two have signed a product development agreement in 2010, as well as a license agreement in 2013 to develop and produce EcoMotors' engines in China. EcoMotors' previous backers include Bill Gates, Khosla Ventures and Braemar Energy Ventures. EcoMotors' engines will deliver the same power levels as conventional engines but are smaller, lighter, and more cost effective, with the potential to deliver over 15% improvement in fuel economy.
