With the future turning electric, Tata Motors is moving in the direction of the next phase development of electric vehicles. Recently, Tata Motors bagged a deal with Lithium Urban Technologies for supplying electric vehicles (EVs), and now they have signed a similar agreement with a Delhi-based mobility service provider called Prakriti EMobility Pvt. Ltd. to provide 500 extended Tata Tigors.
Launched by Nimish Trivedi, Vikas Bansal, and Rajeev Tiwari, Prakriti EMobility would launch its operations in Delhi NCR once they get the delivery of the vehicles from Tata Motors. The first batch of the extended range of Tigors is set to deliver by January 2020. The vehicles will be then used in Prakriti EMobility’s app-based cab service, Evera, in Delhi NCR. Tigor EV has updated the range to 213 km, which was certified by the government and the certification agency Automotive Research Association of India (ARAI).
New and updated Tata Tigor EV
The new and updated Tigor covers an additional 71kms more than the previous version. The extended Tigor was launched in October, and it comes in three variants – XE+, XM+, and XT+, with a starting price of INR 9.44 lakhs. Tata Motors will supply 400 Tigor and added the Nexon to EV fleet provider Lithium Urban. This partnership is aimed at providing mobility solutions across for passenger vehicles, mass transit, and freight.
The World Economic Forum with Ola Mobility Institute (OMI) believes that India has the potential to be the biggest EV market because of the government’s policies and initiatives, and they analyzed EV policies of ten states and union territories. Indian EV’s will become cheaper faster than the US and the EVs will account for over 80% of the passenger vehicles sold by 2030.
