Cummins joins hands with India’s Tata Motors to develop hydrogen cars
Cummins, a U.S. powertrain company, will join hands with India’s Tata Motors to develop hydrogen cars.
According to Autoblog and other foreign media, Cummins said on the 14th (local time) that it has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Indian car manufacturer Tata Motors to develop a hydrogen powertrain for commercial vehicles and fuel cell and battery electric vehicle systems.
Tata Motors aims to achieve zero carbon emissions by 2070, and this cooperation will make India one of the first markets to receive Cummins’ hydrogen engines.
Cum mins is currently working with Wal-Mart to study hydrogen technology in the U.S.
Meanwhile, Tata, one of India’s largest electric vehicle manufacturers, drew keen attention in September when it launched India’s first electric vehicle “Tiago EV” worth $10,000 (KRW 13 million).
It is known that the Tiago EV can travel 250km on a single charge and has sold more than 10,000 units in pre-contracting.
