BENGALURU: Mahindra Electric Mobility on Wednesday announced the global launch of its MESMA 48 platform for light EVs, celebrating the world electric vehicle day.
Mahindra Electric’s MESMA 48 platform offers globally competitive quality and is cost-effective. It is one of the company’s most utilized EV technology solution architecture. The platform is highly scalable and has till date powered over 11,000 EVs on Indian roads. It can electrify a range of vehicles including three-wheelers, quadricycles and even compact cars the company informed.
The platform is scalable in terms of both performance and range, offering voltage systems ranging from 44 V to 96 V, and at the same time, the company claims, it delivers better acceleration than ICE counterparts.
The components are available in both liquid and air-cooled configurations, as per requirement. The drivetrain, with power ranging from 6 kW to 40 kW and subsequent torque ranging from 40 Nm to 120 Nm, can be made available with three varying transmission ratios to suit the performance requirements.
Top speed of up to 80 km/h can be achieved with the MESMA 48 platform, making it perfect for the passenger as well as load-carrying segments. It is compatible with both rigid and flexible axle systems, the MESMA 48 platform is suitable for L5, L6 and L7 categories.
The platform is touted to offer one-stop solution offering key EV components such as the drivetrain, battery pack, electronic control units, power electronics (MCU, OBC, LDC, PDU), their associated software, software calibration, vehicle integration and testing capabilities that can help launch a product in the fastest possible time.
The platform can be integrated to drivetrain, leading to higher power density making it cost-effective. Use of cost-efficient, highly robust, temperature tolerant LFP cells and high energy density NMC cells which can match the performance, range, price and environment requirements of a wide set of customers, the company said.
The journey towards a future driven by e-mobility is well under way, according to Mahesh Babu, MD & CEO of Mahindra Electric Mobility, India. “Our goal with EVs is to revolutionize first and last-mile transportation globally and take e-mobility to the masses. World EV Day is a great forum for us to discuss the next big ideas for the global markets and we take this opportunity to launch our MESMA 48 platform globally.”
