Sona BLW Precision Forgings (Sona Comstar), one of India's leading automotive technology companies, has achieved the 100,000 EV traction motor production milestone.
Sona Comstar’s EV traction motor is a fully indigenous product, with the in-house R&D team having designed and developed it and launched for production in 2020.
The 100,000-unit production milestone has taken the company just 21 months, having begun production at its Chennai plant in November 2020. While cumulative production of the first 50,000 units took 17 months, the next 50,000 units came up in just four months, indicative of the huge market demand for the EV traction motors.
