The company will harness Siemens’ advanced digital capabilities, including digital twins in product planning, engineering, and development
Greaves Electric Mobility Private Ltd. (GEMPL), the e-mobility business of Greaves Cotton Ltd., and one of India’s leading E2W to E3W mobility players, has adopted the Siemens Xcelerator portfolio of software and services to design, and develop its electric two & three-wheeler vehicles for the Indian market.
The initiative re-affirms Greaves’ vision to popularize EV adoption and bring affordable, sustainable, last-mile mobility to India’s rapidly burgeoning EV ecosystem.
Siemens’ NX™ software for product design and engineering and Teamcenter® software for Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), from the Siemens Xcelerator portfolio, will help Greaves Electric Mobility to develop products faster by streamlining and accelerating the product development process through an integrated set of digital product engineering and collaboration capabilities.
These solutions will enable GEMPL to shorten development time by efficiently utilizing digital twins and connecting people and processes across functions. Specifically, digital capabilities will be enabled in the areas of requirements engineering, program planning, mechanical, electrical, and software design management, bill of material management, process, and change management.
Commenting on the initiative, Sanjay Behl, CEO and Executive Director, GEMPL, said: “We are proud to collaborate with Siemens and use its highly advanced digital capabilities, cutting-edge technologies, and expertise to accelerate our product development and thereby, market expansion of our electric vehicle product portfolio. India’s EV ecosystem is on the cusp of tremendous growth, with increasing demand from consumers for sustainable and affordable personal mobility Siemens’ toolset will enable us to reduce the time-to-market introduction of electric two-wheelers under Ampere, as well as help to contribute to the country’s goal of achieving 80% EVs in two and three-wheelers by 2030 and net zero carbon emissions by 2070”.
