Sona Comstar, a global automotive components manufacturing company, has now partnered with Enedym Inc. to develop next-generation switched reluctance motors (SRM) for the Indian market. Enedym Inc. is a canda-based technology company that develops next-generation switched reluctance motors (SRMs), electric propulsion, and electrified powertrains.
The companies will develop SRM drive platforms for Indian road and usage conditions targeting 3-wheeler Electric Vehicles (EVs), 2-wheeler high-performance motorcycles having 10kW or greater nominal power, and 4-wheeler cargo delivery Electric Vehicles having a minimum 20kW of power.
The serial production of these systems is likely to begin in 2023.
Enedym Inc. has previously developed a series of next-generation SRMs with improved efficiencies, power density, and performance for varied applications. By taking out the permanent magnets, Enedym’s SRMs give an advantage in reducing the cost of propulsion motors and at the same time provide high efficiency at high speeds and sustainability to operate in harsh environments and high-temperature conditions.
