Our Vision

Adarin ET is determined to develop mobility technologies that have zero emission and zero carbon footprint on the environment.


The ideation of Adarin dates back to a time when the founders while studying in IITs and consequently working in Automotive R&D centres understood that a standard approach to improve vehicle mileage is to improve engine technology and design to make them more fuel efficient.


Today, Adarin is a start-up focused on developing intelligent transmissions, motors, motor-controller and electrical sub-systems for pure electric and hybrid vehicles. We are quick in adapting to changing market demands and technological upgradations. Our lead times are also significantly lesser as compared to established companies. In the years to come, Adarin is determined to create an ecosystem of mobility technologies that have zero emission and zero carbon footprint on the environment.

We are technology leaders
