Partners with Cummins to collaborate on the design and development of low and zero-emission propulsion technology solutions for CVs in India
Tata Motors, the leader in India’s commercial vehicle sector is working on futuristic technologies towards achieving net zero emission. The company has joined hands with Cummins, a global leader in power solutions and hydrogen technologies provider.
Both companies signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to collaborate on the design and development of low and zero-emission propulsion technology solutions for commercial vehicles in India, including hydrogen-powered internal combustion engines, fuel cells, and battery electric vehicle systems.
Tata Motors and Cummins are already long-standing partners in sharing technologies. In 1993, the two engineering companies came together to fulfill their goal of introducing best-in-class cleaner vehicle technology solutions to the Indian market - Tata Motors to deliver best-in-class mobility solutions in India and Cummins to power that vision through their products and services. Driven by a shared common vision, and values of Integrity, teamwork, and Excellence, this partnership has grown from strength to strength over the last three decades.
This MoU further solidifies their association and is aligned with India’s vision of ‘Energy for Sustainable Growth’ and achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2070. India will be one of the first markets to receive Cummins’ Hydrogen engines, an important technology to help drive decarbonization.
Speaking on the partnership, N Chandrasekaran, Executive Chairman, of Tata Sons and Chairman, of Tata Motors said, “The shift to sustainable mobility is irreversible and Tata Motors is committed to be amongst the leaders of green mobility. We are taking definitive steps to drive this global megatrend forward in each of our businesses. Working with partners who share the same vision is essential for this transition and we are delighted to strengthen our long-standing relationship with Cummins for their next generation, hydrogen propulsion systems. We are excited to indigenize the cutting-edge hydrogen technology to offer our customers an expanded portfolio of green and future ready commercial vehicles, accelerate the adoption of sustainable mobility in the country, and to contribute towards India’s ‘net zero’ carbon emission goals.”
