HORIBA MIRA, advanced automotive engineering, test and development company, has announced the launch of its vehicle engineering and consultancy services through HORIBA India.
HORIBA MIRA said it has been operating in India through a joint venture for the past six years but following HORIBA’s £6.5m investment into the HORIBA India Technical Centre (HITC), a new automotive test facility in Pune, HORIBA is bringing its automotive engineering and test services business together as HORIBA India.
Combining HORIBA products with application solution knowledge and local test facilities including a new vehicle workshop for vehicle dynamics development and a state-of-the-art Euro VI vehicle test facility for emissions testing, HORIBA India intend to offer a consolidated and strengthened turnkey solution for the Indian market.
Bringing together vehicle attribute specialists with deep automotive application knowledge, HORIBA India said it offers engineering, testing and consultancy for vehicle dynamics, whole vehicle durability, emissions and real driving emissions (RDE), with the team also providing electrified powertrain solutions.
Declan Allen, Managing Director at HORIBA MIRA said, ‘We’re bringing the experience and capabilities of our UK operation together with the new HITC capabilities to provide a unique engineering and testing service to our Indian customers.’
‘We’re responding to what the industry and the country needs, by providing market leading RDE services, vehicle electrification services and attribute development, that enables safe, secure and sustainable vehicles to be developed in line with new government legislation.’
‘With a specific strategy which is synergistic to both HORIBA India and HORIBA MIRA, I am delighted to be strengthening our support to the Indian automotive and mobility sectors,’ concluded Allen.
