MG Motor India, along with the consortium members, is back with the third season of the MG Developer Program & Grant – the annual flagship innovation program, supported by Startup India and Invest India. The initiative aims to encourage tech start-ups to build new, technologically advanced applications and experiences to strengthen India’s mobility space.
ACMA will conduct a study on ZS EV to promote skill development in the component segment, syncing with the alliance’s objective of supporting the development of the EV ecosystem. It will work in tandem with IIT Sonipat to further its research on the deployment of electric vehicles in urban India.
The theme for Season 3.0 of MG Developer Program & Grant is centered on Car as a Platform (CaaP), a future of mobility concept that makes cars safer and smarter. To further propagate this new-age innovation, MG Motor India has also unveiled an in-depth white paper on CaaP to illustrate the game-changing applications of this futuristic technology. The consortium partners are Jio, SAP, Adobe, KoineArth, L&T Technology Services, MapmyIndia, and Bosch, among others.
“At MG, we strongly believe that collaboration is the key to disruption. We had previously partnered with various startups resulting in successful stories. We believe CaaP has the potential to redefine mobility. Therefore, in MG Developer Program & Grant 3.0 we are inviting all industry stakeholders to contribute towards developing this revolutionary concept,” said Rajeev Chaba, President and Managing Director, MG Motor India.
“India is the 4th largest vehicle market in the world and is expected to be the world’s third-largest automotive market in terms of volume by 2026. This program is a crucial step towards nurturing innovation in India’s automobile sector, for continued strength in the global economy,” said Deepak Bagla, MD and CEO, Invest India.
