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.
