Valeo and Omega Seiki Mobility (OSM), part of Anglian Omega Group, have signed an MoU, through which the French supplier will provide electric powertrains for the OSM Vehicle Range.

Valeo will make available its 48V electric powertrain system (reducer, integrated Motor and Inverter) along with the Powertrain Control Unit for Omega Seiki Mobility cargo three-wheelers, Rage+ and Rage+ Frost.

In addition, Valeo’s engineers will provide the technology integration support to help Omega Seiki Mobility to go to market quickly. Valeo and Omega Seiki Mobility will further collaborate for the upcoming vehicle models to be manufactured by the company in India.

Valeo launched, in 2020, a fully integrated compact 48V electric powertrain system in India to aid affordable electrification for small mobility vehicles; two and three wheelers, which are extensively used for first and last mile connectivity in the country.

“As a technology company, Valeo develops innovative solutions to reduce CO2 emissions,” said Valeo India Group president, Jayakumar G.

“Omega Seiki will benefit from our deep understanding of not only the electrification technologies, but also the unique needs of integrating electric powertrain in the small mobility format of vehicles.

“I am positive Valeo’s advanced technologies, our strong engineering combined with manufacturing expertise in India will help us to strengthen our partnership and succeed together in this rapidly growing segment.”

Valeo offers both low and high voltage solutions and its technologies power all types of vehicles from two – and three -wheel urban vehicles to premium sedans and SUVs. Through the Valeo Siemens eAutomotive joint venture, Valeo is the world number one in high-voltage, that is, greater than 60V systems for electric vehicles. In India, Valeo produces electric powertrain from its manufacturing facility in Pune, Maharashtra.

Omega Seiki Mobility, which has its EV manufacturing plant in Faridabad, launched its first electric three-wheeler in the country in early 2020 and the company aims to become a complete mobility solutions provider in the three-wheeler and two-wheeler market.

“Powertrain is the most important part of an EV,” added Omega Seiki Mobility MD, Deb Mukherji. “With a global technology leader like Valeo on board, we would be providing our customers with new generation powertrains, which are efficient, use latest technologies in motors, electronics and IOT,  and that, at the same time are cost effective too.

“That is the essence of a disruptive technology.”
