Hero Electric has partnered with the Aurangabad-based Dhoot Transmission for sourcing new wiring harness solutions. Under the partnership, Hero Electric’s products will be equipped with the latest wiring harnesses from the Tier 1 supplier.
Dhoot Transmission, which is the largest wiring harness manufacturer in the two-wheeler segment in India, manufactures a comprehensive entire range of wiring harnesses, EV components, electronic sensors and controllers.
According to Sohinder Gill, CEO, Hero Electric, the wiring harness may look like a very mundane thing to an outsider but it is like the veins and capillaries of an automobile.
He said, “A well-designed and robustly manufactured wiring harness ensures that not only the power is transmitted efficiently and with minimum transmission losses from the battery to the wheel but also that even after years of operation there is no degradation of materials that can put the bike and its components to a safety risk. Our partnership with Dhoot Transmission to procure wiring harnesses for our products is a step towards ensuring vehicle efficiency and customer safety by equipping our products with durable and robust components.”
Rahul Dhoot, MD, Dhoot Transmission, added, “I am excited to announce that Dhoot Transmission has had the privilege of extensively collaborating with Hero Electric on the 3D design for Hero Electric models of the wire harness. This design has features that provide optimum performance to the end user, ensuring long life, compatibility, and durability, all woven into one with careful thought on cost-effectiveness”
Globally, Dhoot Transmission has 21 manufacturing facilities, out of which 18 are located in India. On the other hand, Hero Electric recently partnered with Battrixx to develop ‘Make in India’ lithium-ion battery packs.
