An Israeli start-up, EVR Motors collaborates with Badve Group of India for manufacturing electric motors for electric vehicles in India. Badve Group will make EVR’s proprietary Trapezoidal Stator – RFPM electric motors in the country.
EVR’s motors can be used for electric two-wheelers or three-wheelers as well as for light commercial vehicles. The company claims that these EVR motors weigh less than half from similar power radial flux motors. The collaboration will focus on the three-wheeler market. It will also address the passenger and commercial vehicle markets. EVR believes that India is poised to grow in the future in this segment.
Badve Group has already started the joint development process and localization at its Pune facility for making EV motors. It is currently designing prototypes for Indian Original Equipment Makers (OEMs). To meet the rising demand for EVs, the company will increase its annual production capacity to 0.5 million units by 2023.
Sumedh Badve, President, EV Division of Badve Group, said, “We are very excited about our partnership with EVR motors. The ground-breaking EVR technology and our proven manufacturing expertise coupled with our strategic long-term customer relationships will ensure the success of this partnership. We are fully confident that these motors are best suited for adoption in the multi-terrain Indian landscape and will provide an enthralling experience to Indian riders.”
Opher Doron, CEO of EVR Motors, added, “Together with other recently announced agreements, this partnership will expand our total addressable market to encompass the most significant OEMs in the strongest e2 vehicle market sectors in India. EVR is proud of the trust our customers place in us and our technology, and of the opportunity to play a significant role in electrifying Indian mobility.”
