Dana, the drivetrain and e-propulsion system supplier, and Ashok Leyland subsidiary Switch Mobility have signed an agreement.

Dana will invest in Switch and become a ‘preferred’ supplier of electric drivetrain components for the company’s e-bus and EV commercial vehicle models, providing e-axles, gearboxes, motors, inverters, software and controls, and electronics cooling.

Dana chairman and CEO James Kamsickassaid: “Light commercial vehicles and buses continue to present significant opportunities as they lead the commercial vehicle segment’s shift to fully electrified platforms.”

Switch Mobility chairman Dheeraj Hinduja said: “Dana has over a century of proven track record of leading transformative vehicle technologies.”

Switch Mobility combines the electrical commercial vehicle operations of Ashok Leyland in India and Optare in the UK.
