Tata Group’s design and technology services subsidiary Tata Elxsi has signed a pact with Japanese semiconductor company Renesas Electronics Corporation to build a design center in Bangalore that will develop targeted solutions for electric vehicles.
The new Next Generation EV Innovation Center (NEVIC) was opened in January of this year.
An official statement said that Tata Elxsi and Renesas will bring together their deep domain expertise, intellectual property, and assets to the NEVIC and collaborate to create reference designs and solution accelerators for critical EV subsystems like Battery Management Systems and Motor Control Units, among others.

“We are excited to continue our collaboration with Renesas, a market leader in semiconductors for integrated, sophisticated and reliable solutions for the Electrification domain,” said Shaju S, Vice President and Head of Transportation, Tata Elxsi.
“Renesas is pleased to work with Tata Elxsi, a proven leader of design and technology services for the automotive industry,” said Taizo Hayashi, Vice President of Automotive New Business Creation Division, Renesas. “This collaboration demonstrates our commitment to support the ‘Make in India’ government initiative and we look forward to generating future business growth in India. The NEVIC Solution Center will be a turning point as OEMs and Tier 1s will now have access to secure system solutions and can leverage Tata Elxsi’s Electrification expertise for use case specific customizations.”
Through NEVIC’s product and service offerings, Tata Elxsi and Renesas will support the acceleration of eMobility, particularly the two-wheel and light EV segments, assisting clients in overcoming time to market and technology complexity.
