EKA Mobility, an electric vehicles and technology company, has partnered with Israeli startup EVR Motors to design small, lightweight electric motors for their e-buses and light commercial vehicles (LCVs) in India. Under the collaboration, EVR will design and develop electric motors for EKA, based on EVR’s breakthrough proprietary Trapezoidal Stator – RFPM topology and EKA will manufacture these e-motors and integrate them into the vehicles it will provide in the Indian market. EVR will support the setup of EKA’s assembly line.
“The new commercial agreement with EKA Mobility in India is a result of EVR’s growing offering of electric motors from two and three-wheelers, through hybrid motors to commercial and passenger vehicles,” said Opher Doron, CEO of EVR Motors.
EVR Motors has developed a unique, patented motor topology: The Trapezoidal Stator Radial Flux Permanent Magnet (TS-RFPM) Motor. Compared to standard motors, EVR’s electric motors are 30%-50% lighter and smaller, cost significantly cost less, and can be tailored to user requirements. EVR is now developing a variety of motors for multiple mobility applications. These include Mild Hybrid Electric Vehicles (MHEVs), hybrid vehicles (HEVs), and full Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs).
Dr Sudhir Mehta, Chairman, EKA & Pinnacle Industries Limited, highlighted, “Our partnership with EVR Motors solidifies our commitment to creating a new community in global CV electric mobility equipped with powerful technology for mass adoption. We are confident that EVR’s breakthrough technology will push us further to achieve our vision to make EVs more viable, efficient, reliable, and efficient.”
EKA Mobility recently launched its 9-meter electric bus that provides a solid platform for sustainable and efficient public transport in cities around the world, along with reliable and profitable operations for customers. The product, completely designed & manufactured in India, received the Central Motor Vehicle Rules (CMVR) certification from ARAI, and the first batch will be soon deployed on roads.
