Engineering firm HORIBA MIRA has partnered with the Japanese automotive supplier Keihin to develop electric vehicle technology. The partnership sees the companies set up an engineering programme to develop a powertrain for China.
The new development will take China’s new energy vehicle policy as a guide. The electric drive system thus gears for more efficiency and not just bigger batteries.
MIRA China, a subsidiary of HORIBA MIRA, will provide local support to the project.
A timeline has not been released yet.
