The TVS stall at the 11th Auto Expo resonates the sentiment that TVS Motor Company’s stated mission is to produce environment friendly vehicles that conform not only to emission norms of today but of the future as well. This is evident in the company’s commitment to pursue green technologies that will lead to substantial reduction in CO2 levels while creating good value proposition to customers. In addition to this, the company is focusing on higher fuel economy across its product range.
A wide range of engines that are deployed in the company’s current product portfolio complement the vehicle display at the stall.
The engine that deploys the new ‘TVS Automatic Transmission’ developed indigenously by TVS Motor Company is also on display. This new technology employs an Automatic Transmission in place of the conventional Continuously Variable Transmission Technology (CVT) and will enhance fuel efficiency as much as twenty percent when compared to CVT technology.
TVS Automatic Transmission allows change of gears effortlessly through electronic control while automatically selecting the gear ratios for a particular riding condition. This enables the engine to run at its most efficient revolutions per minute (RPM) for a range of vehicle operating conditions, thereby maximizing the engine performance to achieve peak efficiency and overriding the requirement of a clutch. The company has added an innovative ECU (Electronic Control Unit) which enhances the performance and fuel economy, giving greater convenience of riding.
TVS Motor Company intends to apply this new technology on a slew of products that are in the pipeline. (Patents pending)
Other products on display include the TVS Wego in a new trendy metallic finish along with Scooty Pep+ in a new contemporary colour and the latest all black TVS Scooty Streak. The sporty Apache RTR series: 160cc, 180 cc and ABS; TVS StaR City with exciting refurbished graphics; TVS Sport; TVS Tormax and TVS Radeon: a great combination of power, style and mileage is also on display.
Also displayed is the TVS QUBE, a smart answer to a world searching for a sustainable future. Powered by an upgraded electric hybrid motor, this scooter delivers better driving response. An extended battery pack ensures a longer range. The TVS QUBE thus provides the optimum balance between high efficiency and low emissions enabling a greener future.
TVS QUBE is now closer to reality. This concept vehicle’s DNA of iconic minimalism is reflected strongly in its form surfaces, features and functionality. Switchable power modes, floating full function LCD display, regenerative brakes as well as clean simple bodywork are all designed to impart a fresh, clean and unmistakable feel of the original award winning QUBE concept.
Products such as these are the result of company’s unwavering pursuit for green technologies to create pragmatic innovations that will benefit the lives of people.
