Worldwide automotive industry is quickly shifting from traditional fuel based technologies to eco-friendly technologies such as battery based drive train for development of Electric Vehicles (EVs) due to fast depletion of fossil fuel and to reduce impact of transportation on environment and climate change. Keeping in view the technological requirements of EVs and to increase the local manufacturing of the subsystem of EVs in India, a short term R&D programme is being initiated by Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) for the technology/product development for EVs in the areas such as motor, controller, converters etc, for 2 Wheeler (2W), 3Wheeler (3W)/e-Rickshaw. This initiative is expected to deliver indigenous EVs subsystems at lower cost and also contributing to Make in India initiatives.
Objectives: To develop the Electric Vehicle sub-systems in the areas of Electric motor, controller, converters etc, for 2 Wheeler (2W), 3Wheeler (3W)/e-Rickshaw etc., indigenously. The expected outcome i.e. technology/product has to be cost effective, quality competitive and ready for commercialization. The Total duration of the Project should be of 18 months or less (including product development and commercialization), but the prototype must be ready and testing should start within 12 months.
Implementation modalities: EV sub-systems development has to be taken up in consortium mode comprising of Government R&D institutes/organization for the design and development, industry to commercialize it and vehicle manufacturer to use the developed products in the manufacturing. The R&D institutes/ organization would lead the projects and participating agencies are expected to contribute in the said development.
