SEG Automotive to produce 3W e-motors in India

,Showcases the product at SIAT Expo 2019

SEG Automotive, a German-origin auto technology solution provider focussing on reducing CO2 emissions, said it will be manufacturing the e-motors for three wheelers in India for the domestic and overseas market.

SEG Automotive is also showcasing its new synchronous motor for e-rickshaw at SIAT expo 2019.

According to SEG Automotive, the electric vehicle market is gaining momentum across the globe mainly due to environmental concerns. But the shift will be a gradual one due to issues like range, cost of production, charging infrastructure and fossil fuel heavy energy mix.

However India is right in the middle of transformation in the space of three wheelers. It may be noted that more than one million e-rickshaws are already on the Indian roads and providing efficient emission free transport.

SEG Automotive is now entering this fast growing market with an e-motor, setting new standards in terms of efficiency and durability. The new synchronous motor, co-developed between German and Indian engineering, is based on advanced technology instead of a BLDC (brush less DC) motor and will be showcased at SIAT expo 2019.

Anil Kumar M R, Managing Director, SEG Automotive India, said, “Light electric vehicles offer an immediate benefit in India: They provide efficient transport of passengers and goods as well as keeping emissions out of the crowded cities and thus reducing air pollution.”

Kumar said the decreased total cost of ownership coupled with government incentives for the e-three wheelers also enables drivers to earn a decent living. In times where the public charging infrastructure in India is yet to be fully established, their usage pattern and average driving distance per day makes three wheelers suitable for electrification right away.

According to Dr. Peter Sokol, Chief Operating Officer, SEG Automotive Germany GmbH, “The new efficient synchronous motor from SEG Automotive, co-developed between German and Indian engineering, further amplifies the strength of the e-rickshaw in terms of its operating efficiency, thus increasing range and further reducing total cost of ownership.”

Output power requirements of e-motors for light electric vehicles are lower than for cars – the e-motors needs to be efficient and competitively priced yet reliable. SEG Automotive said it has a proven track record for such efficient, compact motors – as displayed recently with the launch of the ultra-compact SC60 start-stop motor in the Indian market.

“Our new efficient synchronous motor is technologically advanced through specific protection features like overload protection, and offers higher reliability and robustness to easily withstand the tough operating conditions of three wheelers,” explains Anil Kumar M R, Managing Director, SEG Automotive India Private Limited.
