Seiki Mobility (OSM) and Jae Sung Tech Co., Ltd a leading Korean EV powertrain
maker, announced a strategic partnership to manufacture electric powertrains in
India. As a part of this partnership, the two companies will be forming a new
Joint Venture - OSM Jae Sung Tech Co., Ltd. The all-electric Ra314powertrain
will be the first product and will find its home in the OSM Rage+ in Q1 FY23.
new Ra314 will be manufactured by OSM at its facility in Faridabad and in Pune
at its group company, Omega Bright Steel and Components’ facility. Jae Sung
will be bringing in its years of experience with the technical knowhow while
OSM will be bringing in its manufacturing prowess to localise the powertrain.
OSM will also be testing and calibrating the Ra314 for typical Indian driving
Ra314stands out with its 3S build – Silent Drive, Simple Architecture, and
Superior Durability. Besides, the new powertrain is IP-67 rated and will not
skip a beat even if submerged in water for 30 minutes. Based on internal
testing conducted by OSM and Jae Sung, the new powertrain is 30% more efficient
and 20% lighter than existing power units doing duty in the electric
three-wheelers at the moment. This has been made possible with an integrated
motor, gear box design. This leads to significant weight saving as well as
improved vehicle efficiency.
an integrated architecture has also helped in reducing the number of moving
parts leading to lesser amount of wear and tear. This will percolate to longer
service interval and reduced overall service costs for the end customer. The
state-of-the-art modular architecture will also allow OSM to develop the
Ra314for four-wheeler Small Commercial Vehicles (SCV).
on the partnership, Uday Narang, Founder and Chairman, Omega Seiki Mobility
said, “OSM has always believed in constant innovation and is always working to
make the product portfolio a step ahead of the competition. With this JV, I am
sure the Rage+ will be an even better value proposition. Not only will the new
power unit will herald a new era of backward integration making our products
more efficient. We will also utilise Ra314’s integrated and modular
architecture to build customised power solutions for other EV makers in India
to use, thus helping in faster adoption of electric vehicles in India.”
Hyunjin, CEO, Jae Sung Tech Co., Ltd said, “We are delighted to partner with
Omega Seiki Mobility, which is a pioneer in electric vehicle manufacturing. Our
overall powertrain architecture and integration was developed with flexibility
in mind to allow us to quickly adapt to the ongoing changes and developments in
the industry. As a technology company, Jae Sung always believes in developing
innovative solutions which are environment friendly as well as cost effective.
I am positive that our advanced technologies,strong engineering background when
combined with OSM’s manufacturing expertise in India, will help us to
strengthen our partnership and succeed together in this rapidly growing
Ra314 has been tested extensively and is being engineered to work in extreme
temperature range of +50 deg C to -20 deg C.
This will allow the power unit to be at home across India, be it in the
scorching sun of Rajasthan or freezing cold of the Himalayas.
about the Ra314 Powertrain, Dr. Deb Mukherji, Managing Director, Omega Seiki
Mobility said, “We will be developing Ra314 completely in India with Jae Sung
technology support. It’s a next gen powertrain with IoT which will help our
customers keep a track of their vehicle’s performance via an app, in a cell
phone. We will also be utilising the power unit in upcoming OSM products in the
near future which will include three-wheelers as well as four-wheelers.”
