Omega Seiki Mobility (OSM) and Foundation for Innovation and Technology Transfer (FITT), an industry interface organization established by the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi, have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to jointly work on electric vehicle technologies and advanced research.
The collaboration between the two entities is primarily aimed at innovating alternate energy powered vehicles and other emerging technologies in the EV space, including efficiency and performance improvement of Omega Seiki Mobility’s existing line up of vehicles, the company confirmed in the official statement.
"Partnering with the best premier technical and research university will not only contribute to India but to the whole world, through excellence in scientific and technical education and research will ultimately serve as a treasured resource for industry and society as a whole," said Uday Narang, Chairman, Anglian Omega Group.
Omega Seiki Mobility is part of the Anglian Omega Group that manufactures electric three-wheeler cargo carriers.
OSM will be making its vehicles, design and manufacturing facilities, and lab available for any prototyping, testing or sample manufacturing as part of this collaboration which will eventually subsidize FITT. Thus, contributing in a scientific and technical research on e-mobility.
"This (the partnership) is a milestone occasion as it brings together two parties from different walks of life, who have the potential to work jointly towards this global disruption of electric mobility," expressed Anil Wali, Managing Director FITT commenting on the joint collaboration.
The partnership is expected to leverage OSM in terms of design, simulation, product development, prototyping and production of automotive components and full vehicle development of e-2Ws, e-3Ws, and e-4Ws.
