Tata Sons Chairman N. Chandrasekaran today flagged off Tata Motors' first batch of Tigor electric vehicles (EVs) from its manufacturing facility at Sanand near here in Gujarat.
 
Mr. Ratan Tata, Chairman Emeritus, Tata Group, Mr. Guenter Butschek, CEO & MD, Tata Motors and members of the Tata Motors Executive Committee were present on the occasion.
 
The Tigor EVs are being manufactured for the Indian Government’s order of electric vehicles from the Energy Efficiency Services Ltd (EESL), an entity under the Ministry of Power.
 
Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Chandrasekaran said it was a significant milestone for Tata Motors. "As we work together to build the future of e-mobility in India, I am confident that our customers will respond very favourably to this electric model."
 
Mr. Butschek said, "With Tigor EV, we have begun our journey in boosting e-mobility and offering a full range of electric vehicles to the Indian customers. This tender has effectively paved way for connecting our aspirations in the e-mobility space with the vision of the Government.”
 
Tata Motors had qualified as L1 bidder in the midst of stiff competition and won the tender of 10,000 electric cars floated by EESL in September 2017. For phase 1, Tata Motors is required to deliver 250 Tigor EVs, for which it has received a LoA. For an additional 100 cars, the LoA is expected to be issued shortly by EESL. The electric drive systems for this prestigious order have been developed and supplied by Electra EV – a company established to develop and supply electric drive systems for the automotive sector.
 
"Tata Motors is committed to the Government’s vision for electric vehicles by 2030 and will work in a collaborative manner to facilitate faster adoption of electric vehicles and to build a sustainable future for India," the release added.
