India’s First Home-Built Exoskeleton Structure for EVs

Mobility tech start-up firm EVage has introduced India’s first home-built ‘Exoskeleton Structure’ that will provide a common platform for the launch of electric vehicles (EVs) as SUVs, Vans, Delivery Vehicles and Trucks. The team believes their new product is in line with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision Atma Nirbhar Bharat.

The disruptive technology innovation, from which as many as seven different kinds of vehicles can be produced, has been put together by a special team including aeronautical engineers who have worked on manufacturing European supersonic planes and world-class missile propulsion systems apart. The team came together five years back with the aim of easing the pain of manufacturing electric vehicles and bringing them within the reach of the common man in India.

“In these last five years of R&D, we have redefined the way vehicles are built, we design our EVs like one would look at manufacturing aerospace structures, this is a key differentiator in our approach towards building a ‘new-age’ car company,” said  Inderveer Singh, Founder & CEO, EVage.

“Our differentiated approach is a result of the kind of team we built,” he said. “Our team of highly specialised experts has proven the efficacy of this first-of-its-kind ‘Exoskeleton Structure’ in India. We have built our first vehicle in the logistics sector – a four-wheel commercial van that has done a test run of over 100,000 km,” added Singh.

Significant innovations achieved in the last five years of R&D include:

  • Aerospace inspired structure / Focus on light-weighting
  • Innovation in the bio-friendly material – lighter and stronger than steel
  • Focused on modularity – assembly and design, EVage can customise the product
  • Proprietary e-platform chassis
  • Integrated powertrain – motor controller, gearbox and battery made from scratch

EVage is a mobility tech start-up conceptualised in 2014 with the endeavour to disrupt the mobility industry. Its first product is in the 4 wheeler commercial vehicle segment. It currently employs around 30 people at its R&D centre in Mohali, India.
