Napino Group announce partnership with Enedym Inc. for proprietary Switched Reluctance Motors for 2-Wheeler Electric Vehicles
Gurugram: Napino Auto & Electronics Ltd., India’s premier Tier 1 Automotive Component Manufacturing Company, has announced a strategic partnership with Enedym Inc., a Canada based company with patented Switched Reluctance Motors (SRM) technology. The commercial agreement will see Napino partner with Enedym to develop and manufacture complete motor solution for 2-Wheeler EVs in India.
Proprietary SRM solution, with its magnet-free technology, eliminates expensive permanent magnets & rare earth metals, which has huge dependence on China, thereby reducing the cost of propulsion motors by as much as 40% and the sourcing challenges associated with it. These Motors have high efficiency at high speeds and are suitable for operation in harsh environments and high temperatures. Enedym’s switched reluctance motors are quiet, smooth and efficient with high power density and require lower maintenance.
Napino Group has continuously endeavored to invest in future technologies, especially pioneering Electric Vehicle Technologies to promote a sustainable future. Being a leading Tier-1 supplier with marquee customers like Hero MotoCorp, Honda, Suzuki, Ola Electric, Ampere & Ather amongst others, Napino strongly believes that Enedym’s SRM technology will be the right alternative to conventional motor technologies and cater to the 2-Wheeler power train, which is likely to go electric in the near term.
On the occasion, Mr. Vaibhav Raheja, Joint Managing Director of Napino, commented, “We are extremely delighted to announce our partnership with Enedym. Achieving removal of magnets and rare earth elements in these products, offers great advantage not only from a geo-political point of view but also ensures sensible use of natural resources. We are confident that the affordable and robust solution being created by our engineering & manufacturing teams will offer quicker adoption of electric mobility in India. Our vision is to make India a global manufacturing hub for EV Motors & contribute towards making it carbon neutral.”
Commenting on the partnership, Mr. Naveen Kumar, Group CEO of Napino, said; “Zero emission mobility has become a global movement & this well timed partnership has been signed to assist India’s transition to electric mobility. With Enedym as our partner, we are well positioned to be a leading technology provider for system supplies of EV drive train. Napino’s excellence in electronics manufacturing and a deep rooted customer relationship will be leveraged to launch this offering and further strengthen its vision of being technologically driven.”
Dr. Ali Emadi, Founder, President, and CEO of Enedym commented, “We are very excited to announce this deal with Napino. This partnership is transformative and significant given it will provide a more stable and secure global manufacturing supply chain, combined with sustainable next generation motor technology. Partnering with Napino will also allow us to supply our next generation motor technology within a massive market and offer Indian based and global OEM’s a viable manufacturing alternative to China.”
