Guwahati: The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Guwahati has developed a technology that rates the motors and batteries of electric vehicles (EV) and suggests to original equipment manufacturers (OEM) the best drivetrain components for the Indian scenario.


A team of researchers at the Indian Institute of Technology, Guwahati has developed a technology that seeks to ‘rate’ batteries and motors of electric vehicles (EV) and suggests to original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) the best drivetrain components for the Indian scenario.

This is a unique method of its kind which standardised the electronic vehicles based on Indian drive-cycles.

So far, the institute says, researchers have not been considering Indian drive-cycles.

The drive cycles developed are not focused on rural and urban drive cycles. The Electric Vehicles currently available in the market also do not take into account the different climatic conditions in India.

IIT Guwahati said “Currently, no OEM uses this technology and they have been requesting the drive-cycle data of Indian vehicles. This research hopes to create better and more efficient drivetrains based on different regions. This is also beneficial for start-ups. This research aims to reduce emissions and reduce fuel consumption,”

This research has been published with ISBN 978-93-5578-973-0.

The institute intends to extend the research to commercial vehicles working with OEMs so that they can manufacture more efficient drive trains that suit the different climates of India better.

The researchers are also working to develop this technology for four-wheelers, as the current project focuses exclusively on two-wheelers.

Professor T. G. Sitharam, director of IIT Guwahati,  said in a statement “The development in the field of next-generation energy-efficient EV technology is one of the most important breakthroughs required for the sustainable development of the country and to reduce carbon footprint. This development will augment this process and maximize the outcomes,”

Praveen Kumar, the Professor, who led the research at the varsity’s Department of Electronics and Electrical Engineering, said “Our goal is to prepare a document that can enable the new entrants into the EV market and help in leveling the playing field. The other primary benefit of this entire exercise is to prepare the next generation of technocrats that are ready for an excellent career in EV technology anywhere in the world,”
