The Israeli start-up will provide advanced lightweight electric motors for EKA’s electric buses and light commercial vehicles
Israeli start-up EVR Motors has entered a partnership with India-based EKA Mobility, an electric vehicles and technology company and a subsidiary of Pinnacle Industries.
EVR Motors will design small, lightweight electric motors for e-buses and light commercial vehicles (LCVs) in India. Under the collaboration, EVR will make the electric motors for EKA, based on breakthrough proprietary technology. EKA will source 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, Chief Executive Officer of EVR Motors. “We are proud that EKA Mobility, a fast-paced, innovative vehicle manufacturer, has chosen our advanced, lightweight motors to power their vehicles,” he further added.
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 percent lighter and smaller, cost significantly less and can be tailored to user requirements. EVR’s first commercially produced motors were designed for two-wheelers and three-wheelers and are suited for a wide range of additional applications.
EVR is now developing a variety of motors for multiple mobility applications including Mild Hybrid Electric Vehicles (MHEVs), hybrid vehicles (HEVs), and full Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs).
Dr Sudhir Mehta, Chairman, EKA and Pinnacle Industries said, “At EKA, we are reinventing the design philosophy and manufacturing of electric vehicles and are developing sharable technologies to democratise EVs with best-in-class TCO (total cost of ownership) solutions, and sustainable ecosystems. 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.”
