Sanjay Kumar-CEO & MD-Altran India-Automotive Engineering – Panel Discussion


which was originally not designed for that so from that perspective I think you know you will see okay maybe in the commercial vehicle segment given India’s unique position of having some of the words roads in the world that you will have a small commercial vehicle which is unique to this market okay which may not get sold anywhere else but I wouldn’t you know go that far to say that that’s innovation being able to sell a cell of one and a half ton vehicle so that it is inclined up a hill because it does not a good road okay to some extent yeah it’s a good niche to have been able to understand and tap with a cost-effective solution but in terms of how does it benchmark globally I think there’s a lot of gap because I’m just hypothetical is like to continue on that theme here you know innovation like coming back to the two cylinders fiat has has a superb little two-cylinder engine the twin air yes which has so much of technology in it it’s been boarded the green engine of the year a couple of times but the market acceptance has been fairly low why because of the engine note the exhaust note yes in a developed market it’s it’s it’s also how the vehicle sounds that that drives a buying decision having said that now continuing on the same thing there are going to be there are systems being developed whereby you will also get the acoustics right wed thru your car speakers so ferrari is working on an engine where you will shut down some of the cylinders but the engine note will not change because you will get the sound from the speakers so it’s either it’s things like this that that you have to you know then then think off to cylinder the engine note is no good okay what do I do to do to make it more acceptable to the consumer just extending the point I think innovation would be quite relevant in India if it is done on the fuel efficiency side I think that’s where i would say something which if it is done would be very very useful for India it may not be so much in terms of engine let’s assume major innovation technologies but something which helps extend that you know kilometer in that litter of oil will always be important for India because India we have very large number arm and i would say seventy percent cars are below four lakh rupees where people who buy these cars for the basic transportation needs and the top of the main question is to manatee and that’s it so I mean that’s where I think everyone is is trying to extend that and trying to put that innovation into their engines and I think we always try and compete in terms of what is our mileage for car on one liter of oil and that could be relevant for Indian conditions i would say rather than looking at very major innovations happening here may not be so relevant in terms because volumes may not support that while if you do something on the field economy of smaller cars it definitely has a market here it has a reason to support that [Music]
