Greaves Cotton partners UK’s Eta Green Power for e-powertrain technology

Greaves Cotton, which showcased three electric scooters – the new Primus and two concepts – along with a trio of electric three-wheelers at the Auto Expo 2023 earlier this month, has announced a collaboration with Eta Green Power, a UK-based advanced electric drive system design company.

Greaves Cotton will now have exclusive rights to Eta Green Power’s technology in the Indian electric two- and three-wheeler market. As per the company, the “e-powertrain suite will be manufactured at the Aurangabad plant with a high degree of component localisation.”

 Greaves and Eta Green Power will jointly bring technology related to e-motors and motor controllers with integrated battery chargers for electric two- and three-wheelers. The first joint operation will be localised production of motor controllers and integration of software for electric two- and three-wheelers. The move will enable cost optimisation which in turn will enhance EV affordability across segments.

Nagesh Basavanhalli, executive vice-chairman, Greaves Cotton, said:  “Greaves Electric Mobility is facilitating the transition from traditional vehicles towards a more sustainable EV ecosystem. In order to support and fast-track this transition, our partnership with Eta Green Power, a globally reputed player, will play a key role to strengthen our EV presence in the country with world-class technologies.

 Commenting on the tie-up with Greaves, David Morgan, CEO, Eta Green Power, said: “India is a key market for Eta Green Power and we are excited to partner with one of the country’s established and fastest growing e-mobility  companies to expand operations in India. Eta Green Power will leverage Greaves Cotton’s leadership position to provide world-class drive systems to the Indian market.”

DrArup Basu, MD, Greaves Cotton added, “Today’s announcement represents a natural progression towards designing and engineering electric powertrain technologies that will shape the future of mobility in India. We are undertaking initiatives to strengthen our capabilities and roll out motor controllers. Our e-powertrains and components will be built to perform efficiently, with safety and reliability as key features.
