Autocar Professional Magazine - October 1, 2019
In this issue
Autocar Professional’s Lightweighting Special is a heavyweight – 88 pages of in-depth features, exclusive interviews with CEOs and industry analysis. From commercial to passenger vehicles and also leading component suppliers, we take a close look at just what India Auto Inc is doing to cut the kilos and shave the grams as OEMs look to derive the maximum mileage from their vehicles.
Suppliers are doing their bit to help OEMs shed vehicle weight. Jaya Hind Industries has developed its first structural part – an aluminum cross-member – for an OEM’s upcoming model using the high-pressure die casting route and achieved sizeable 35 percent weight savings. Meanwhile, Vedanta Aluminium has become the first aluminium producer to launch primary foundry alloy for the auto industry in India.
Adopting weight loss therapy also means using high-performance engineering plastics. Find out how DSM is exploring deeper synergies with OEMs and suppliers to drive in innovation. And BASF is targeting new growth with the advent of BS VI norms in India as well as the OEM drive to reduce vehicle weight.
With the vehicle scrappage policy in the offing, Mahindra Accelo, M&M’s JV with MSTC which has India’s first organized vehicle recycling facility in Greater Noida, has a first-mover advantage.
We also reveal MG Motor India’s plan to ramp up production as well as localisation, while detailing 70 component suppliers to the MG Hector SUV.
Lots of other news too – like Tata Motors’ Ziptron EV tech, the Renault Triber’s clever engineering – and interviews with Arvind Sawant, Union Minister for Heavy Industries and Public Enterprises, and Ashish H Kale, President, FADA.
