Switch Mobility, the electrified commercial vehicles company and a subsidiary of Ashok Leyland on Wednesday announced a strategic agreement with Dana Incorporated (Dana), the global leader in drivetrain and e-propulsion systems, to make a minority investment in Switch.

Under the terms of the agreement, Dana will make a strategic investment in Switch Mobility and will also be a preferred supplier of electric drivetrain components for the company's e-bus and EV commercial vehicle offering - including e-Axles, gearboxes, motors, inverters, software and controls, and electronics cooling, Switch Mobility said in a release.

The company further said with this agreement, Dana not only becomes an important supplier to Switch but will also invest US$18 m in the company, representing an approximate 1% stake.

Switch Mobility combines the electrical commercial vehicle operations of Ashok Leyland in India and UK to secure a leading global position in net zero carbon buses and light commercial vehicles.

Ashok Leyland share price ended the day up by 5.8% on the BSE.

Speaking of electric vehicles, note that the power ministry has approved setting up 2,636 electric vehicle charging stations across 62 cities in 24 states.

Here's what co-head of Research at Equitymaster, Tanushree Banerjee wrote about electric vehicles in one of her editions of Profit Hunter:

  • '106 public and private entities have approached the government for permissions to set up about 7,000 EV charging stations.

    This clearly shows the vehicle manufacturers have enough incentive to capture this latent demand.

    The tax benefit in terms of a lower GST rate (at 5%) is a further shot in the arm of the EV industry.'

As per Tanushree, electric vehicles are very much on their way to invading Indian roads. The threat of disruption in this era is something you cannot ignore.
