Over 40 Indian cities are home to more than a million residents. With mobility requirements at its greatest in urban sprawls, Bosch foresees electrification as a future growth area in India. The company is ready to offer its portfolio of electrified solutions for the local market. “Small-vehicle segments will drive the transition to mass electrification, as urban dwellers seek a simple and affordable alternative to conventional standards,” stated Peter Tyroller, member of the board of management, Bosch Group for Asia Pacific. The company’s range of electrified solutions aims to address India’s individual mobility requirements. Despite the focus on electromobility as a long-term alternative, internal combustion engines will still play a major role in the near future – the powertrain of the future will be a mix of electromobility and combustion engines. 

“Today, the Indian supplier base is fragmented for electromobility solutions. With the current powertrain offerings from Bosch India, the company is aiming to bridge this gap and have the first mover advantage,” remarked Peter Tyroller.

The Central Government’s initiative with the target to have an all-electric fleet in India by 2030 as well as the Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of (Hybrid &) Electric Vehicles (FAME) programme offer Bosch a competitive edge. The company provides customised solutions to be able to contribute in achieving this impending target, given the necessary infrastructure is being set in place.

 “There are a lot of vehicles in the Indian automotive market right now that have the scope to be electrified. This makes India a great incubator for an electric future,” said, Peter Tyroller. The electrification systems from Bosch can easily be integrated with any light vehicle. This helps the manufacturers with their go-to-market strategy. The solution has been made scalable across all performance classes between 0.25-20 kW. This electrified solution delivers high performance even under challenging circumstances.
