The powertrain in India can trace its roots back to
Environmental impact, global warming, and health hazards brought the global greenhouse emissions norms and lead to stricter control on automotive powertrain. These tough emissions norms made Indian OEMs look at outsourcing powertrain development for more competent, quick, and proven solutions with better technology and lower risk. The emissions norms also lead to better power, fuel economy, and comfort through reduction of NVH.
