Forsee Power, a specialist in smart battery systems for sustainable electric mobility, has announced that it is now delivering its GO10 battery systems to Indian vehicle manufacturer Omega Seiki Mobility. This was part of the MOU signed one year ago. It will equip 5,000 RAGE+ 3-wheelers.
Forsee Power is a major European player in the Asian light mobility market. More than 100,000 vehicles have been equipped by the Group, which offers a variety of onboard and portable battery systems.
Forsee Power’s GO 10 lithium-ion 48V battery pack is robust and provides 10 kWh of energy. It also delivers a high level of autonomy, delivering 110 km to Omega Seiki Mobility vehicles.
This battery system is especially suited to fleet sharing and intensive use. The battery system’s best-in-class batteries and its proprietary Battery Management System, (BMS), allow for a remarkable life expectancy of 3,000 cycles.
India’s government has an ambitious plan to reduce carbon emissions. The FAME 2 program supports the purchase of electric vehicles, including buses, three-wheelers, and four-wheelers. The scheme can only be used for advanced vehicles and batteries.
Forsee Power announced the plan to set up a plant in Pune when the program was launched. The production of a series of batteries began in May 2021. The first phase of the Group will focus on the local light electric vehicle market, which includes two, three and four-wheelers. A second phase will target the heavy vehicle market.
Omega Seiki Mobility is expanding its product range and manufacturing footprint in India. This company is the first OEM with a product line that includes four-wheelers, three-wheelers and two-wheelers. OSM has established large-scale manufacturing facilities in Delhi NCR, and Pune and is now looking to expand into Chennai. Under the brand UNOXpress, OSM is a top last-mile service provider. Omega Seiki Mobility currently operates its fleet in 20 cities and covers more than 1,000,000 km (10 lackm) per month.
Omega Seiki Mobility believes that sustainable mobility solutions can be created by integrating Automobiles with Society. The brand’s goal is to create an eco-friendly, safe, and congestion-free environment. OSM has been a key player in India’s clean energy sector and is synonymous with India’s success in sustainability. OSM, a manufacturer of electric vehicles, aims to accelerate future mobility with green energy at its heart by using data-driven, intelligent engineering.
“We are proud to partner with Omega Seiki to contribute to the decarbonisation of India’s light mobility with our innovative and zero-emission solutions. India’s market is extremely dynamic. While we are ramping up our local production in Pune, we are endeavoring to developing local skills and producing with the lowest environmental impact possible to ensure a sustainable battery industry in India”, explains Durga Akhnoor, CEO of Forsee Power India.
