In order to design and develop electric two and three-wheeler vehicles for the Indian market, Greaves Electric Mobility Private Limited (GEMPL), the e-mobility division of Greaves Cotton Limited, has chosen the Siemens Xcelerator portfolio of software and services.
The project reinforces Greaves’ goal of popularising EV adoption and bringing cost-effective, environmentally friendly last-mile mobility to India’s fast-developing EV ecosystem.
Commenting on the initiative, Sanjay Behl, CEO, and Executive Director, GEMPL said, “We are proud to collaborate with Siemens and use its highly advanced digital capabilities, cutting-edge technologies, and expertise to accelerate our product development and thereby, market expansion of our electric vehicle product portfolio.
