Tata Motors is committed to becoming a zero-emission brand by 2045 and for that, the automaker is betting big on electric and hydrogen fuel technology, said the automaker's executive director Girish Wagh.

Currently, Tata Motors leads the Indian electric car market with its range of battery-powered pure electric passenger vehicles including Tiago EV, Tigor EV and Nexon EV. Besides that, the automaker is also working on multiple other electric cars that will be introduced over the next few years. A major player in the commercial vehicle space, the company aims to make its CV segment electrified as well. Apart from that, the auto company is also aiming to make its facilities zero emission as well.
