Former GM, Tesla Executive Grace Overlander joins Pinnacle Engines as CEO

Grace Overlander, former head of Powertrain Production Engineering at Tesla, has joined ultra-efficient engine startup Pinnacle Engines (earlier post) as Chief Executive Officer.

Most recently, Overlander led Tesla’s Powertrain Production Engineering Organization.  Her team is credited with the launch of the record-breaking P100D high voltage battery, dual motor, and managed the early stage builds for the Model 3 sedan and Tesla Energy product line.

Prior to joining Tesla, Overlander spent more than a decade between General Motors’ Chevy Volt and Easton Hydraulics in product management, strategy, marketing and finance.

Overlander holds a Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Michigan and graduated from Massachusetts Institute of Technology as a Fellow with the Leaders for Global Operations. She holds an M.B.A. from Massachusetts Institute of Technology - Sloan School of Management and a Master’s in Mechanical Engineering.

Pinnacle Engines, a Silicon Valley-based technology company with a subsidiary in Pune, has created a novel, ultra-efficient engine technology based on a patented opposed-piston architecture. Low heat loss and unique cylinder geometry mean less energy loss, contributing to up to 50% greater fuel efficiency. Pinnacle’s technology is low-cost, tested, proven, and protected by more than 200 patents worldwide.
