SEG automotive is all set to introduce two new products for this fast growing segment: An 8 kW e-motor for E-Autos and a 5 kW e-motor for 2-wheelers at the upcoming Auto Expo 2020- Components. Both the products will feature best-in-class efficiency and reliability.
The transition towards eco-friendly mobility is a global challenge, which hinges on
many issues - from battery price, production and capacity to green power
production and a sufficient charging infrastructure. Compared to passenger
cars, electrifying 2- and 3-wheelers has a much lower barrier of entry. It
provides a quick solution to reducing urban pollution and CO2- emissions, particularly
India a large proportion of individual mobility is accounted for by 2- or
3-wheelers (motorcycles, autos and rickshaws) – as an example, Bangalore alone
has more than 5 million 2-wheelers on the road.
electric passenger cars, which are currently not ideal in this market due to high
total cost of ownership and a lack of charging infrastructure, light electric
vehicles make sense for society and the individual consumer on an immediate basis:
They have a direct impact on reducing urban pollution and CO2 emissions.
do not depend on a charging infrastructure as they can be charged at home overnight.
Their total cost of ownership is also competitive due to much smaller batteries
(3 to 5 kWh) as well as FAME II and state level incentives.
Automotive first entered this market with a highly efficient motor for
E-Rickshaws in 2019, which is now in series production with various customers.
Now we will expand our product portfolio to cover the entire 2-and 3-wheeler segment.
The new EM
for E-Autos as well as the EM 1.5 for 2-wheelers has been developed specifically
for the Indian market,” stated Mr. Anil Kumar M R, President & MD, SEG Automotive
