Claimed to be world's cleanest single cylinder engine, the future-ready product will be deployed across multiple three-wheelers starting with Piaggio Ape, and will offer better torque and load carrying capacities
Greaves Cotton has announced the completion of the BS-VI certification for its single cylinder Diesel engine. The company claims to be the country's first single cylinder diesel engine-maker that significantly reduces emissions.
Engineered with advanced fuel injection technology and aftertreatment systems, the single cylinder engine will offer better torque, enhanced load carrying capacities as well as reduce emissions significantly. The new engine is designed to power multiple diesel operated three-wheelers in the country and will be deployed first in Piaggio's Ape.

Dr. Ravi Damodaran, Chief Technology Officer, Greaves Cotton, said the significant technological achievement will enable its OEM partners to reduce pollution and added that this technology breakthrough is yet another strategic achievement in building world-class clean-mobility solutions ranging from clean diesel to CNG and electric.
