Future Tata cars to sport keyless entry systems

Future Tata cars to sport keyless entry systems

Over the last few years, many manufacturers have been trying to make our lives easier by trying out ways to make car driving easier. Keyless entry system is one of those attempts and Tata Motors will roll out their new products with this feature.

The company is in talks with Marquardt, a mechatronics component manufacturer based out of Germany, to equip its future cars with passive entry and passive start systems. This feature allows the driver to lock and unlock the vehicle’s doors without touching a key, and start and stop the vehicle engine just by pushing the ignition button. The new system will be found in Tata car models from Q3 of 2016. The company is also setting up its R&D centre in Pune and has plans to establish a production facility as well in the future based on the market response to its products.

Marquardt has been supplying such systems to various premium car manufacturers like Volkswagen, BMW and Mercedes-Benz. Both the companies have zeroed down on the contract and the delivery package per vehicle for Tata Motors includes a key control unit, antenna, door sensor, electronic steering local and a start stop button. The first set of equipment will come from China and depending on the market response, it will decide if it wants to set up a manufacturing facility in India.
