Under the agreement, Dana will become a preferred supplier of electric drivetrain components for the electric vehicle company's e-bus and commercial vehicle offering.

Dana Incorporated and Switch Mobility signed a strategic agreement in which Dana will invest in Switch Mobility and become a preferred supplier of electric drivetrain components for the company’s e-bus and EV commercial vehicle offering, providing e-axles, gearboxes, motors, inverters, software and controls, and electronics cooling.

“Light commercial vehicles and buses continue to present significant opportunities as they lead the commercial-vehicle segment’s shift to fully electrified platforms,” James Kamsickas, Dana chairman and CEO, said. “We are pleased to extend our relationships with our long-standing customers, Ashok Leyland and Switch Mobility, as they continue to grow and implement their next-generation, road-proven technology that will enable a direct, positive impact on delivering sustainable urban emobility.”

Switch Mobility combines the electrical commercial vehicle operations of Ashok Leyland in India and Optare in the U.K. to secure a global reach in net-zero carbon buses and light commercial vehicles.

“Dana has over a century of proven track record of leading transformative vehicle technologies,” Dheeraj Hinduja, chairman of Switch Mobility, added. “In Switch Mobility, we have an ambitious plan to be leading the zero-carbon mobility globally through positioning innovative products and solutions with best-in-class TCO. I believe the co-operation with Dana will accelerate the process, building on our strong relationship of many years. Through the synergy between us and with our shared aspirations, I am confident we will enhance our product offerings significantly and extend our market footprints in many new geographies.”
