The acquisition, as such, covers the services of these employees, entire land and buildings which were formerly with Ford India and vehicle manufacturing plant along with machinery for an amount of 725.7 crore, excluding taxes.

Watch: Tata Tiago EV: First drive review

At present, Tata Motors offers electric models such as Nexon EV, Tigor EV and the recently-launched Tiago EV. At the upcoming Auto Expo 2023, the company has confirmed it will showcase more electric models of its existing lineup of ‘regular’ vehicles. The list of EV versions to be showcased include Safari, Harrier, Punch as well as Altroz.

Tata Motors has a wide playing field in the electric car space with no other direct rival anywhere close to its product portfolio in this regard. While Maruti Suzuki is unlikely to have an EV in India anytime before 2025, others like Hyundai and Kia Motors have - or will have - high end models at over 50 lakh price section. But there is some movement over at the MG Motor India and Citroen camp. MG Motor will showcase its MG Air EV at the Auto Expo and this is likely to be priced at around 10 lakh to 12 lakh. Citroen - absent from the expo - is gearing up to drive in the electric version of its C3 compact vehicle.
