Cummins, Tata Motors Sign Deal to Produce Clean Tech Products in India
Tata Motors, India’s largest automaker, and Cummins, a global leader in diesel and alternative fuel engines, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to jointly develop and sell high-performance, low-emission engines and emission after-treatment systems in India. The partnership aims to leverage each company’s strengths to meet India’s growing demand for clean technology products.
Development Of New Tech Products For Indian Market
The MoU, signed in 2021 by Tata Motors Chairman N Chandrasekaran and Cummins Chairman and CEO Tom Linebarger, will likely lead to the creation of new products for the Indian market, including electric powertrains and alternative fuel options. This move will assist India in its efforts to improve air quality and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Partnership Between Cummins And Tata Motors
Both companies aim to benefit from their partnership by increasing their market share and adapting to the changing demands of Indian consumers. Cummins has a long history of producing innovative, high-performance engines and power systems that meet the needs of customers in various markets, including the automotive, mining, and marine sectors.
Tata Motors, on the other hand, is a well-known automaker in India with a significant market share in the commercial vehicle industry. The company has been working to develop new products and technology, such as electric vehicles and alternative fuel options, to meet the evolving demands of its customers.
Collaboration To Meet BS-VI Emission Standards
India has been striving to adopt higher emission standards for automobiles in recent years to reduce air pollution and promote public health. Beginning on April 1, 2023, all new vehicles sold in India must comply with the BS-VI emission standards. These standards will require cars to produce much less harmful pollutants, such as carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, and particulate matter.
The Indian automobile industry is expected to be significantly impacted by these standards as manufacturers strive to create and sell vehicles that comply with the new standards. Through their collaboration, Cummins and Tata Motors hope to develop and sell high-performance, low-emission engines and emission after-treatment systems that comply with India’s future BS-VI emission standards.
Promotion Of Sustainable Mobility
The partnership between Cummins and Tata Motors aims to support India’s efforts to promote sustainable mobility and reduce its dependence on fossil fuels. The collaboration is expected to result in the development of new products for the Indian market, such as electrified powertrains and alternative fuel options.
The demand for clean technology products has increased sharply in India in recent years as people become more aware of the adverse effects of air pollution on human health. India is now investing more money in sustainable technologies like electric cars and renewable energy.
According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), India is expected to become the world’s largest market for electric vehicles by 2030, with up to 30% of new car sales being electric vehicles.
