Thane-based Lith Pwr Mobility Pvt Ltd. has partnered with Tork Motors Pvt Ltd. and Honda Power Pack Energy India Pvt Ltd., a subsidiary of Honda Motor Company, Japan, for 3-wheelers EV operations in India. Under this partnership, electric 3-wheelers will be powered by Tork Motors’ powertrain & Honda will provide the Battery as a Service (BaaS) swapping solution. A company statement mentioned that the commercial operations for BaaS have commenced, and the first stint in Bengaluru already hosts multiple swapping stations to smoothen its operations. Lith Pwr Mobility executed its pilot project in Thane, Maharashtra in 2021.
Tork Motors has also been working with electric 3-wheeler OEMs since 2017 and is already manufacturing and supplying powertrains to multiple companies. Tork Motor’s Powertrain has an Axial flux motor supported by the CAN Bus-based controller to give out maximum power, which enables an overall efficiency of 94%. It also comes with a 2-speed gearbox.
On this occasion, Manish Agarwal, Founder of Lith Pwr said, “With the support of our associate partners who have vast expertise & experience in electric automotive, we are contributing to the nation building. At the same time, the three-wheeler (auto-rickshaw) industry is considered a major source of pollution in last-mile connectivity services. Our mission is to provide eco-friendly rides for daily commutes in metro cities with zero downtime on a swappable battery pack”.
