Bosch strives to realise emission-free mobility

Bosch’s two-wheeler and Powersports business unit is continuing the ride towards the global target of one billion euros of sales in 2020, generated by assistance, powertrain, electrification and connectivity systems. Bosch’s vision is to make the mobility of the future accident-free, stress-free, and nearly emissions-free. The global demand for two-wheelers is forecasted to grow annually by more than four percent from 2017 to 2022, reaching 122 million by 2022. Bosch supplies market-specific motorcycle safety and powertrain solutions to comply with regulations as well as local market trends.
“The two-wheeler landscape is undergoing many changes as industry players look to innovate their service offerings. As a key player in the two weeler space, Bosch has always endeavored to provide services that integrate cutting-edge technology with the company’s inherent focus on functionality and efficiency,” says Geoff LierschHead of Two-wheeler and Powersports Business unit.
In India, 34 percent of road fatalities are riders of two-wheelers. Bosch is tackling this challenge with a comprehensive three-step safety concept towards accident-free mobility. We keep the bike stable in braking situations and acceleration with systems like ABS and Motorcycle Stability Control (MSC)

Bosch is offering scalable powertrain solutions with electronic engine management systems for internal combustion bikes as well as integrated electrification system to support vehicle manufacturers in India to comply with BS-VI emission standards and meet India’s unique driving pattern. Electronic engine management systems are the core of efficient and economical technology for internal combustion vehicles. In combination with highly developed sensor technology , electronic engine management systems have shown considerable increase in efficiency compared to conventional carburetor systems and can reduce CO2 emissions by upto 16 percent (depending on the situation).

The second phase of Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of Hybrid and Electric (FAME) programme will start from April 2019. For this, Bosch provides solutions such as an integrated electrification system including motor, control unit, battery, charger, display and app that can power light, two, three and four-wheeler electric vehicles with upto 20kW-the powertrain of the future will be a mix of electromobility and combustion engines.

“We at Bosch are working towards ensuring a smooth transition to the emission norms with a tailored product portfolio for the Indian market supporting vehicle manufacturers with local engineering competence-aiming towards realising the vision of nearly emission-free mobility,” said Prabhu Panduranga, Regional President, Two-wheeler and Powersports Business Unit, Bosch India.
