around 900 people.
Hau, Member of the Executive Board at Vitesco Technologies and Anurag Garg,
Managing Director & Country Head of Vitesco Technologies India Private
Limited attended the inaugural event.
Vitesco Technologies product portfolio
comprises electric drive units, electronic controls, sensors, actuators, and
solutions for treating exhausts gases. Worldwide, the company has more than 10
years experience in the area of electric vehicles drive technology.
first series of productions at the Talegaon facility will be for the
two-wheeler market, followed by various powertrain solutions products such as
engine management systems, sensors, and actuators, as well as exhaust
management components for passenger cars and commercial vehicles. The company
will concentrate its efforts at this facility on the growing demand for highly
efficient, low-emission technologies for internal combustion engines, as well
as electrified and all-electric drive systems.
company has already started making products for companies like Royal Enfield,
Suzuki Motorcycles, Maruti Suzuki, Ford, among others.
over 37488 employees at approximately 50 sites globally, Vitesco Technologies
Group AG is the parent company and has been based in Germany since September
30, 2021. The 2021 fiscal year saw the completion of the Vitesco Technologies
Group's spin off from Continental AG and the listing of the company on the
Frankfurt stock exchange.
Technologies concentrates on the development and production of components and
system solutions for drive trains in hybrid vehicles, electric vehicles, and
combustion engines. Its portfolio comprises 48 volt electrification solutions,
electric drive systems, and power electronics for hybrid-electric and
its product basket includes electronic controls, sensors, actuators,
turbochargers, hydraulic components and pumps as well as exhaust gas solutions.
Vitesco Technologies' business operations are run in four business units:
Electrification Technology, Electronic Controls, Sensing & Actuation and
the top seven customers of Vitesco Technologies are Ford Motor Company, General
Motors Company, Hyundai Motor Group, Mercedes-Benz Group,
Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance, Stellantis and Volkswagen Group. These top
seven customers contribute an average of 71 per cent of annual revenue. More
than 30 per cent revenues come from the Asian region comprising countries like
China, Japan, Thailand and India among others.
Technologies has an R&D centre in Bengaluru in the south Indian state of
Karnataka and a manufacturing centre in Talegaon in Pune (Maharashtra). Apart
from this, the company has two joint ventures in the country.
2017, Napino Control Systems Pvt. Ltd was formed as a joint venture between
Napino and Vitesco Technologies for the design and manufacture of EFI
(Electronic Fuel Injection) systems for two wheeler, modular switch, sunroof
wire harness, etc. The company is based in Gurugram, Haryana.
July end 2020, Vitesco established a 50:50 joint venture company PV Clean
Mobility Technologies, again in Gurugram, with Padmini VNA Mechatronics for select
powertrain technology solutions that meet the new BS-VI emission norms for
product range of the new joint entity focuses on sensors and actuators, as well
as fuel delivery modules for passenger cars, commercial vehicles as well as
TECHNOLOGIES INDIA PVT LTD
new plant in Talegaon will be focusing on all BS VI related products and later
when electrification starts, the company will be manufacturing these products
too at the plant. As pollution norms gets stricter in the country with the Real
Driving Emissions (RDE) norms becoming mandatory from April 2023 and further
changes in the Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) norms, the Pune plant will
be depending on the company’s R&D centre to manufacture these sophisticated
or Real-world driving emissions tests are tests that measure the pollutants a
car produces while being driven on real roads as opposed to being tested in a
lab that simulates real-life driving conditions. As for Corporate Average Fuel
Economy (CAFE) norms, these are likely to be changed in coming years. While BS6
norms controls the emissions of contaminants such as hydrocarbons (HC), sulfur
and nitrogen oxides (NOx), CAFE norms, which came into effect in 2017, focus on
overall fuel consumption, thereby reducing CO2emissions.
this factory was a major milestone for Vitesco Technologies, allowing us to
provide better value to our clients in the Indian market”, said Klaus Hau,
Member of the Executive Board, Vitesco Technologies.
said that India plays a central part in our global growth strategy, stating
that, “The country's automotive industry is currently undergoing what is
possibly the most significant transformation in its history. The objective is
to achieve a twin technological transformation: from fossil fuels to renewable
energy, and from analogue - to - digital technology. We embrace this
transformation and have already begun to design our strategic course. Also,
with the new facility, we will be able to better respond to market demands and
developments in the future.”
all Vitesco Technologies facilities, the plant in Talegaon, Pune meets its grid
demand entirely through renewable energy sources. Furthermore, the site
generates sustainable electricity. All new photovoltaic systems have been
installed, generating 03 GWh of solar energy. The present installed capacity is
2.6 MW, with the company aiming to raise it to 3.6 MW by the end of the year.
With over 25 cobots and robots installed on the production lines and shop floor,
the facility is also strongly pursuing automation, digitization, and Industry
Garg, Managing Director & Country Head of Vitesco Technologies India
Private Limited said:“Our mission is to develop highly efficient, low-emission
technologies for internal combustion engines and electrification technologies
for all types of vehicles in India. For this, we build a futuristic plant, one
that is intelligent, sustainable, and predictive. With these key
characteristics, we were able to construct this plant of the future in Pune.
Several creative projects have been completed at this facility. These projects
on digitization, automation, and sustainability across our manufacturing
network have helped us to shape the Plant of the Future”.
further added, “Due to the growing carbon footprint, we also considered the
climate change while building this facility. I am delighted to say that the
facility in Pune is operating at a carbon-neutral level and has fully
established itself as a driver of sustainability”.
