Adarin builds hybrid drivetrains for cars

These days, carmakers are driving through tough terrain to comply with India’s Bharat Stage VI (BSVI) emission rules, which kick in from next year. Several auto makers say hybrid drivetrains will help stem compliance costs, but are wary about investing in a technology that could be eclipsed by zero-emission electric vehicles, which may become ubiquitous as early as 2030.
