TVS, BMW To Jointly Make Electric Two-Wheeler In India

TVS Motor is expanding its long-term partnership with German automaker BMW Motorrad to develop electric vehicles (EVs) and future technologies in the country. The first product jointly developed by the two firms will be showcased in the next 24 months. This isn’t the first time the BMW and TVS are teaming up, though. In 2013, the pair inked a deal to develop sub-500cc motorcycles. The partnership allowed BMW to access TVS manufacturing and access to the Indian market with its G 310 lineup. As of Q3 2021, the Indian brand has delivered 83,592 units of the G 310 series and TVS-produced Beemers account for 20-percent of BMW’s global production. The latest agreement between the partners builds on the success of the baby GS and roadster. According to reports, the new deal includes initial development and production of 50,000 electric two-wheelers split between BMW and TVS. The partners will distribute those units to both Indian and international markets.
