To be showcased at the Auto Expo 2020, the T1N will be available in diesel, CNG as well as 100% full electric drive versions to serve the shared mobility segment
Force Motors today revealed its first next generation shared mobility platform code named as T1N. The monocoque panel van platform has been developed for both internal combustion engines as well as 100% electric drive. The platform will be powered by the new BS6 compliant Common Rail Diesel engine as well as BS6 CNG variant, and will be later available in full electric version.
The T1N platform has been designed with a 2-box construction keeping the engine fully outside ensuring least NVH in passenger compartment. For a comfortable ride, T1N gets independent front suspension with transverse parabolic springs at the rear. Force Motors has set up a new state of the art facility, with a body shop with robotic and laser welding facilities at Pithampur. The vehicles would be showcased at the forthcoming Delhi Auto Expo 2020 and expected to be available for sale by the end of the year.
The 100 member engineering team at Force Motors took four years to develop the shared mobility platform and claims to offer safety and passenger comfort of international standards. The T1N is the first vehicle in this category to offer crash and rollover compliance with air bags for driver and co-driver, stated the company. T1N comes equipped with ventilated disk brakes on all four wheels with ABS, EBD, EDTC as well as ESP for safer ride. For now, T1N platform is underdoing final validation and homologation processes.
