TVS Motor Company said on Wednesday that its long-term collaboration with BMW Motorrad India to develop electric vehicles (EVs) and future technologies in India has been expanded. In the next two years, the first product developed jointly by both companies will be unveiled to the public.
Both organizations will work together to develop new platforms and build their proprietary goods on top of them. These items will be sold all over the world. TVS will be in charge of designing and developing future BMW Motorrad products, as well as supply chain management and industrialization, under the terms of the cooperation. The Chennai-based firm will continue to focus on engineering prowess in design and manufacture, as well as providing products of best-in-class quality.
BMW Motorrad and TVS will collaborate to take advantage of developing technologies in the future mobility area while keeping track of consumer segments’ global needs. “The new world of future mobility includes a heavy focus on alternative mobility alternatives, such as electric transportation. Extending this successful relationship to electric vehicles (EVs) and other newer platforms would allow innovative technology and aspirational goods to reach global markets “Sudarshan Venu, TVS Motor Company’s Joint Managing Director stated.
In April 2013, the two-wheeler firms signed long-term strategic cooperation to manufacture sub-500cc motorcycles for global markets. They produced three vehicles on the 310cc platform as part of this collaboration: the BMW G 310 R, BMW 310 GS, and TVS Apache RR 310. Markus Schramm, Head of BMW Motorrad, remarked, “Our strong synergies have led to the development of excellent goods in the sub-500cc segment.”
With over 100,000 clients, these enterprises’ jointly produced goods have been warmly received across markets in the EU, US, Japan, China, and India. “We are glad to extend our partnership with TVS to encompass… collaborative development of new platforms, including electric cars,” Schramm added.
