Tata Motors is one of the early movers in terms of EV space in the country. The brand quickly worked its way up to introduce two electric vehicles, the Nexon EV and the Tigor EV here. The cars even garnered applaud for their budget-friendly pricing when compared to other cars in competition. Now, Mr. N Chandrasekaran, Chairman, Tata Motors has confirmed that the brand is set to have 10 new battery EVs in its portfolio by 2025. Also, the brand will be looking to invest in charging infrastructure across the country. With a lot many cars set to enter the market, we are pretty confident that this will push more buyers to make a switch from conventional cars to electric cars. In today’s article, we will look at Tata EV plans and their roadmap for the future.
What all verticals will this EV plan from Tata touch?
Due to the major sales numbers achieved by Nexon EV (4000+ units), the EV penetration in the brand’s portfolio jumped from 1% to 2% in FY-21. Tata Motors is confident that this penetration value will exponentially grow in the coming years, and that the brand will proactively drive this change in consumer behaviour. As mentioned above, Tata Motors has also been planning to set up charging infrastructure across the country. In addition to this, the brand is actively looking for partnerships in cell and battery manufacturing in India and Europe to zero down on battery suppliers. The brand is also evaluating an automotive software and engineering vertical within the Group to press forward in the direction of connected technology, shared mobility and autonomous vehicles of the future.
What all EVs can we expect from Tata Motors?
The brand has already claimed that all its current vehicles can be turned electric if and when needed. This shows the versatility of the platforms but as of now, we cannot say if the brand is planning to turn all its current cars to electric. However, we do know that Tata has already planned the Altroz EV, which we might get to see sometime soon in the coming time.
What about Tata-owned JLR?
Jaguar Land Rover is targeting to sell 100% zero-emission vehicles by 2036. Jaguar has already stated its plans of going all-electric by 2025. Also, 60% of Jaguar Land Rover’s volumes will be pure battery-electric vehicles by 2030. The luxury division of Tata Motors Group is also quickly pressing forward towards sustainable mobility.
