Bharat Forge opened a research-and-development facility in the U.K. The facility is located in the MIRA Technology Park in Warwickshire, the U.K.’s leading automotive technology park, where it will develop components and subsystems focused on electric vehicles. The center will complement the capabilities and knowledge established during the past two years at the Kalyani Centre for Technology & Innovation and the Kalyani Centre for Manufacturing Innovation in Pune, India.

The new Electric Mobility Research and Development Centre will be able to tap into the extensive testing facilities at MIRA Technology Park as well as the pool of engineering talent in the U.K.’s Midlands region.

Commenting on the new research facility, Amit Kalyani, Bharat Forge executive director, said, “We are really impressed with the infrastructure and the facilities available in MIRA Technology Park and have set up a research facility focused on R&D for powertrain solutions for electric vehicles. Several large global OEMs and Tier 1 companies are already present at MIRA technology Park for development and testing of vehicles and systems in the EV space.”
