Greaves Cotton Ltd.
Greaves Cotton Ltd., in-line with the rising demand for alternate fuel and electric transmission systems, displayed two new powertrain solutions for last mile mobility. These include a BSVI compliant, multicylinder turbocharged intercooled diesel powertrain and a CNG powertrain. Both are built in technical association with Pinnacle Engines and Altigreen Solutions. Expected to help many OEMs to make the transition to BSVI emission norms by 2020, the powertrains would find use with over 30 OEMs in the three-wheeler and micro four-wheeler space. For CNG and Petrol powered three-wheelers, the company took the wraps off the linear twin piston technology it has developed in partnership with Pinnacle Engines, USA. The company also showcased technology in the form of a power plant, which is claimed to offer 30 per cent higher fuel efficiency over a conventional fuel engine.
For the last mile transportation aftermarket, the company featured ‘Greaves Care’. An organised setup, ‘Greaves Care’ is claimed to offer high quality repairs, wide range of high quality aggregates at the hands of trained mechanics with a post service cover-up of upto six months. To provide an insight into what it does, the company put up a VR booth. Away from its core area of activity, Greaves Cotton displayed a futuristic three-wheeler EV concept – E3. The composite body of the concept is designed and built by the MG Group. The concept combines a well styled light weight body, with the Greaves Altigreen drivetrain technology to deliver high performance with low total cost of ownership.
