e-Ashwa Automotive Private Limited, one of the leading electric vehicle manufacturing brands in the country, has signed its first joint venture with Texor Energy to produce lithium batteries.
As part of the joint venture, e-Ashwa Automotive and Texor Energy will jointly produce the lithium batteries under the joint brand of both the companies. This partnership will help e-Ashwa Automotive to use its own branded lithium batteries in its wide range of electric 2-wheelers and 3-wheelers products.
Speaking on this joint venture, Vikas Gupta, Founder and CEO, e-Ashwa Automotive, said, “Battery is an important part of electric vehicles and there is a greater need for a localized manufacturing to cater to the needs of the Indian market. By partnering with Texor Energy, e-Ashwa has entered the battery manufacturing space which will help expand its offerings and provide company owned lithium ion batteries to our vehicles. As a result of this tie-up, both companies will have the opportunity to provide their customers with quality battery packs and extend their reach across the country.”
e-Ashwa Automotive is strengthening its capabilities in lithium-Ion batteries and partnered with Neuron Energy, a manufacturer of lithium-ion and lead acid batteries, last month for sourcing 600 EV battery packs each month and 10,000 battery packs per year. It has also recently announced the launch of its new EV Design and Engineering Centre in Ghaziabad.
e-Ashwa has 12 different models of electric 2-wheelers and a few electric 3-wheelers models under its own brand e-Ashwa. Under electric 3-wheelers, e-Ashwa has its own model of e-Rickshaw, e-Loader and e-Auto apart from vehicles like e-Cargo, e-Garbage, e-School van and the likein the 3-wheelers verticals.
