Tata's new subsidiary, called Tata Passenger Electric Mobility Limited (TPEML), will deal with the Indian manufacturer's electric models. The company's start-up capital is around €83 million, and it is under complete ownership of Tata.
In the face of Nexon EV (right on the photo above), Tata offers the best-selling electric car in India. The electric SUV from 2020 uses an electric motor with a power of 96 kW and has a battery with a capacity of 30 kWh. From 2017 onwards, the Nexon was on the market with petrol and diesel engines only.
In the summer of 2020, Tata released another SUV: Tigor EV (left on the photo above). The compact hatchback with a power of 55 kW relies on a battery of 26 kWh and covers a range of 306 km according to the Indian standard ARAI (Automotive Research Association of India).
Two more electric models will soon be released, the Altroz EV and the Punch EV (see pictures below). There is still no official information about the drive, but the mileage on a single battery charge should be only 250-300 km.
Auto Trendy’s take:
Tata Motors is taking an interesting approach with forming a start-up daughter company that ultimately provides agility for innovations. We, at Auto Trendy, have observed this move being made by Volvo Autonomous Solutions and the results there are pretty fascinating so far. Thus, we are left curious to see what the Indian minds will achieve on the road to the electrification of cars.
