Maruti, Mahindra and Tata to jointly develop EV and hybrid components

Mahindra Maruti Tata Motors partnership

The objective of the association is to ensure common standards for components and to achieve cost benefits.

In what can be terms as an interesting alliance, the three major Indian automakers Maruti Suzuki, Mahindra and Tata Motors have teamed up to invest and develop components and systems for hybrid and electric vehicles. Talking to The Hindu BusinessLine, Arvind Mathew, CEO of Mahindra Reva, stated that the objective of the alliance is to ensure common standards and a low overall cost structure.

This collaboration arrangement between the Indian automakers is expected to promote the acceptance of green vehicles by driving costs down. The association is most likely to be a part of the Indian government’s initiative to develop hybrid and EV platforms in association with automakers.

Though the components and systems will have common standards, each of the participants will have their own software IP.

The platforms thus jointly developed would have common components but each of the participants will have their own software IPs and vehicle designs. The government is also working with CV makers to develop green platforms for public and goods transport.
