In line with its vision of
bringing the best of technology to India, Greaves Cotton Limited, India’s
leading engineering solutions company, launched two new powertrain solutions at
the Auto Expo – The Motor Show 2018. Both these solutions offer class-leading
fuel efficiency and reduced emissions, addressing the growing alternate fuel
segment and the emerging electric vehicle segment.
Greaves is also showcasing
BSVI ready versions of its diesel and CNG powertrains that it currently
supplies to over 30 OEMs in the 3-wheeler and micro 4-wheeler segments. On
display at the Auto Expo 2018 is an all new family of multi-cylinder
turbo-charged intercooled engines which are BSVI compliant. Greaves Cotton will
also be introducing Greaves Care - India’s largest multi-brand organised
service and spares network for 3Wheelers & micro 4Wheelers. With the
introduction of these innovative engines and aftermarket solutions, Greaves
Cotton aims to reinvent the Last Mile Mobility Solutions and services space.
Additionally, Greaves Cotton
is showcasing for the first time in India high performance electric powertrains
that are completely ‘Made in India’. At the heart of this power train is an
ultra-light compact high output induction motor, developed by Altigreen
Propulsion Labs. This motor is controlled by a compact high performance custom
designed motor controller working with lithium ion batteries. The EV powertrain
is being showcased as a proof of concept on existing 3W Auto on the Auto Expo
Ferry vehicle, to demonstrate market ready technology.
On display at the expo, is a
futuristic 3W EV concept which combines a well styled light weight body with
advantages of the Greaves Altigreen drive train technology. Greaves presented
the 3-wheeler concept E3 based on its unique power train solution for Auto Expo
2018. The lightweight body of the new vehicle is made of advanced composite,
made in collaboration with MG Group, which compliments the unique Greaves
Cotton EV powertrain that is made up of ultra-light battery and less moving parts.
This combination is designed to deliver high performance with low total cost of
ownership, gives longer running distance per charge, thus assisting in
achieving enhanced earnings for the driver and ensuring non-stop availability
of vehicles for the commuters.
