Mahindra Two Wheelers has received international patents for four of its developed technologies. The four innovations for which patents were received by the company are the fuel gauge system, the automatic ignition cut-off, the distance- to-empty fuel system and the engine immobilizer. Most of these technologies are currently incorporated in the Mahindra Centuro and will also feature in the company’s upcoming products.
All these features are first in the segment and with a very competitive pricing; the Centuro has given Mahindra a certain edge over other available products. The distance-to-empty system along with the fuel gauge helps the rider estimate the distance the vehicle will cover using the fuel remaining in the tank when it hits reserve. The automatic ignition cut-off intelligently saves fuel during vehicle idling conditions. The engine can be restarted with a blip of the throttle and the engine immobilizer provides an effective anti-theft solution.
“With our in-house technologies getting international patents, we are reaffirming our commitment to offer best-in-class technology and innovative products to meet customers unmet needs. The incorporation of these technologies into our range of two-wheelers differentiates us from our competitors and is creating significant consumer demand,” said Viren Popli, executive vice president, Mahindra Two Wheelers.
"At our state-of-the-art R&D facility in Pune, we continue to focus on technology driven innovation for our two-wheelers. The internationally patented technologies, developed in-house, are a testimony to this effort. We will continue to develop innovative technologies that appeal to the global two-wheeler community at large,” said P S Ashok, senior vice president and head R&D, Mahindra Two Wheelers.
