More than a million people die prematurely every year in India due to poor air quality. Road transport accounts for more than two thirds of the total air pollution in urban areas. To overcome this massive impact of exhaust emissions (there is a 3% impact to the country’s GDP), partial or complete electrification of vehicles is an absolute necessity.
Altigreen is making Connected, Shared transportation Affordable & Carbon Free.
We design, develop, test, certify and manufacture powertrains for full-electric and hybrid-electric vehicles, which are cost effective, robust and customized for the drive profiles, environmental conditions and driving behaviors commonly found in India and most emerging markets.
Our proprietary powertrains can be used for two different applications
Full Electric Vehicles
Our powertrains are foundations for full electric / battery electric vehicles.
This solution can either be retrofitted into existing vehicle gliders (by replacing the Internal Combustion Engine) or is made available through our OEM partners’ vehicles. We are already working with three OEMs in three different vehicle segments and are developing customized electric powertrains for their future vehicles. Our high efficiency systems provide customers with higher power and longer drive range.
Partially Electrified Vehicles
One rendition of our product can also work alongside the existing ICE engine of the vehicle.
The 48V system, called HyPixi, can be retrofit on in-use fossil fuel vehicles (both diesel & petrol) converting them to hybrid-electric. It operates without needing any external charging from the grid. Using regenerative braking, intelligent 48V charging and electric assist, it is able to achieve 25% improvement in vehicle mileage.

Altigreen has created the full technology stack to help customers transition smoothly to battery electric vehicles. All the components are designed in-house and are manufactured through captive domestic fabrication partners.
