“SOMIT has created a niche for themselves in the challenger EV OEM segment.

Generating revenue through the lifecycle of a vehicle is a key priority for OEMs. SOMIT and KPIT will better enable their OEM clients in realizing this strategic objective. This will be one of the fastest-growing market opportunities in the next 3-5 years,” said Kishor Patil, co-founder, CEO, and MD, KPIT Technologies.
