Submissions are invited for Development of Electric Vehicles (EVs) Sub-Systems for the year 2021. The last date of submission is 5 September.
Worldwide automotive industry is quickly shifting from traditional fuel based technologies to eco-friendly technologies such as battery based drive train for development of Electric Vehicles (EVs) due to fast depletion of fossil fuel and to reduce impact of transportation on environment and climate change.
Keeping in view the technological requirements of EVs and to increase the local manufacturing of the subsystem of EVs in India, a short term R&D programme is being initiated by Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) for the technology/product development for EVs in the areas such as motor, controller, converters, Chargers etc,. This initiative is expected to deliver indigenous EV subsystems at an affordable cost following the standards with quality.
To develop the Electric Vehicle sub-systems in the areas of Electric motor, controller, converters Chargers etc, ranging from small to Large vehicles etc., indigenously. The expected outcome i.e. technology/product has to be cost effective, quality competitive and ready for commercialization.
The Total duration of the Project should be of 24 months or less (including product development and commercialization), but the prototype must be ready and testing should start within 18 months (The broad specifications of the products to be developed are placed at Annexure-I ).
EV sub-systems development has to be taken up in consortium mode comprising of Government institutes/ R&D organization (recognised by DSIR) for the design and development, industry to commercialize it and vehicle manufacturer to use the developed products in the manufacturing. The Government institutes/ R&D organization (recognised by DSIR) would lead the projects and participating agencies are expected to contribute in the said development.
