Electric car component maker Flash has announced that it will be entering a technological collaboration with Slovenia-based GEM motors to develop electric motors.  

The agreement will see both brands manufacture hub motors for various electric vehicle segments, ranging from 1kW to 15kW.  

With the flexible and modular motor design, the company can provide motors with customisation, in a faster turnaround time, Flash said in a statement. 

The company expects to become a global manufacturing hub for various customers with access to 20 global GEM motors patents, it added. 

“In line with the global mobility trend and to strengthen India’s forthcoming electric vehicle ecosystem, we are delighted to partner with a distinguished player, GEM motors. We look forward to manufacturing GEM motors patented, modular multi-phase motor technology in India and catering to EV OEMs (original equipment manufacturers) across the world,” said Flash Managing Director Sanjeev Vasdev. 

Flash will now be the first company in India to have a product portfolio of motors ranging from 1 kW to 540 kW across two /three wheelers, passenger cars, LCVs, HCVs, including electric buses, he added. 

GEM motors CEO Simon Madelj said the company has already on-boarded over 15 customers in Europe, North America, and other countries for their range of motors and are looking to further strengthen their position in India with this new alliance with Flash.
