Omega Seiki Mobility (OSM) and EVR Motors, an Israeli start-up designing a new and patented motor topology have announced a strategic partnership to manufacture electric motors in India.
The association will see the introduction of a new lightweight, compact Trapezoidal Stator Radial Flux (TSRF) motor, which can be adapted to a wide range of vehicles. This motor will be used in the current line-up and future electric vehicles of Omega Seiki Mobility. Interestingly, weighing just 9kg the air-cooled motor delivers 17 kW of power and 41 NM of torque.
As per the partners, the new motor is less than half the size of conventional motors, making it the smallest electric motor in its class, which can fit in an average sized human palm, without compromising on output. It is also significantly lighter than conventional Radial Flux Permanent Magnet (RFPM) motors with similar power output.
OSM says with the new patented TSRF motor its range of electric vehicles will benefit from superior power delivery and uniform torque delivery, while reducing production costs. This motor can be modified to fit in most mobility and industrial applications, ranging from two-, three-wheelers to even buses and trucks. TSRF technology can support a wide range of power and torque outputs, with voltage ranging from 48V to 800V, that are suitable for different power levels and for a wide range of speeds.
The electric motor by EVR Motors will be manufactured by OSM at its facility in Faridabad and in Pune at its group company, Omega Bright Steel and Components’ facility. Under the association, EVR Motors will bring its experience and expertise while OSM will bring its manufacturing competence to localise the electric motor. OSM will also be testing and developing the TSRF motor for typical Indian driving conditions.
Uday Narang, founder and chairman, Omega Seiki Mobility said, “The alliance will allow us to add value in integration of our products making them more efficient and cost effective using EVR’s efficient yet compact motors. Omega Seiki Mobility (OSM) believes that the way to develop faster EV Technology is through creating global alliances like these.”
Opher Doron, CEO, EVR Motors said “We are very proud to cooperate with Omega Seiki Mobility, an innovative electric vehicle manufacturer, embracing new technology to create a competitive advantage on their journey towards electrification. EVR believes that reducing the cost, size and weight of electric motors will accelerate the adoption of electric vehicles and contribute to a healthier and more sustainable world.”
Dr. Deb Mukherji, MD, Omega Seiki Mobility said, “Israel is a superpower in high-end technologies in EVs, batteries and smart vehicles. Country is known for its high-tech cutting-edge technologies that go into new age transportation. An alliance with EVR Motors will be a great value propositions for OSM’s present and future range of vehicles making them world class.”
Omega Seiki Mobility has been growing its product line up and manufacturing footprint rapidly in India. The company is first OEM to have 2,3 and 4 wheelers in its product portfolio. The company has set up large scale manufacturing facilities in Delhi NCR and now looking to expand in Pune.
