Jan 15: Eco concerns have succeeded in pushing ahead the significance of electric vehicles, of late. The EV market place is gaining in strength, but from what the situation has been showing, the shift is expected to be gradual.
The factors that are being attributed to the gradual growth are range, production costs, charging infrastructure and a fossil fuel heavy energy mix. The Indian scenario is such that the nation is in the middle of a transformation when it comes to three wheelers. The country has managed to bring on the roads more than 1 million e-rickshaws.
In this changing scenario, SEG Automotive India has lined up plans to enter this market with its e-motor, thereby looking to set fresh standards in efficiency and durability. The new synchronous motor, co-developed between German and Indian engineering, is based on advanced technology instead of a BLDC (brush less DC) motor and.
The company plans to showcase the product at SIAT expo 2019. According to a news report, SEG Automotive believes that, In times where the public charging infrastructure in India is yet to be fully established, their usage pattern and average driving distance per day makes three wheelers suitable for electrification right away.
It is here that the new efficient synchronous motor from SEG Automotive, co-developed between German and Indian engineering, further amplifies the strength of the e-rickshaw in terms of its operating efficiency, thus increasing range and further reducing total cost of ownership, the company feels.
The report said that the output power requirements of e-motors for light electric vehicles are lower than for cars – the e-motors needs to be efficient and competitively priced yet reliable. SEG Automotive has a proven track record for such efficient, compact motors – as displayed recently with the launch of the ultra-compact SC60 start-stop motor in the Indian market.
