Ather Energy partners with Foxconn arm for sourcing EV components

Ather Energy, an electric two-wheeler manufacturer, has partnered with Foxconn subsidiary, Bharat FIH to source various components for its electric vehicles (EVs).

Bharat FIH will be managing the whole supply chain and logistics for these components, which include printed circuit board assemblies, peripheral controlling units, and drive control modules. Besides these products that it manufactures in-house, Bharat FIH also has an agreement with a supplier to manufacture electronic grade lead-acid batteries for the company's electric vehicle projects.

Earlier, Sanmina Corporation used to supply these components.

Ather Energy chief executive officer, Tarun Mehta said that they are working to strengthen their supply chain to meet the rising demand for their scooters.

He added that they are delighted to partner with Bharat FIH to offer us the supply chain capability, capacity, and process expertise to cater to their volumes as well as projections.

Mehta said that the partnership reflects how many large auto component manufacturers want to take advantage of opportunities in the EV industry. Lack of interest among larger suppliers has hindered EV manufacturers, but now things are improving because supply is picking up.

In February, Ather sold 2,042 scooters, a rise of 140% year-on-year (YoY).

Indian PM2.5's Oxidative Potential Far Exceeds Europe's

A recent study highlights the significantly higher oxidative potential (OP) of fine particulate matter (PM2.5) in India compared to Europe. PM2.5, tiny particles with a diameter of less than 2.5 micrometres, can penetrate deep into the lungs and even enter the bloodstream, causing various health issues, including respiratory and cardiovascular diseases. The study, conducted by researchers from India and Europe, revealed that the OP of PM2.5 in Indian cities is five times greater than that in European cities. OP measures the ability of PM2.5 to generate reactive oxygen species, which can cause ..
