Tata Group’s design and technology company, Tata Elxsi will partner with Tata Motors to develop a connected vehicle programme to power the Tata Nexon electric car.
The collaboration between Tata Elxsi and Tata Motors has resulted in the development of cloud-based IoT system which gives Tata Motors a common standard technology base that delivers the high performance and scalability needed to assist the entire range of Tata’s commercial, electric and passenger vehicles.
Tata Motors is working on offering the vehicle connectivity feature as a major game changer over most of its BS6 range of commercial and passenger vehicles. And the Nexon EV is the first to rollout as the application embedded vehicle from Tata Motors with a host of connectivity features.
Speaking on this development, Rajendra Petkar, President and CTO of Tata Motors, said, “In line with Tata Motors stated objective of offering differentiated products based on our CESS philosophy (Connected, Electrified, Safe & Shared), we are delighted to have partnered with Tata Elxsi which not only allowed us to take the decision of developing a native platform for the connected vehicle Program, but also helped us to jump start and meet the critical product launch timelines.”
Mr Petkar also said, “Tata Elxsi brings strong automotive electronics experience, coupled with an excellent understanding of cloud-based applications, data governance and world-class user experience capabilities. The collaboration between the two teams has been outstanding and will continue to ensure a wonderful customer experience.”
