Tata Motors to deliver country's biggest EV fleet order of 10,000 XPRES-T EVs
Tata Motors will deliver the country's biggest electric vehicle fleet order to all-electric ride-hailing mobility service BluSmart Electric Mobility. Under an agreement signed by both the companies, the former will provide 10,000 XPRES-T EVs to the latter with deliveries starting soon. This order is in addition to the 3,500 XPRES-T EVs' order placed by BluSmart in October last year. The initiative is aimed at helping minimise the carbon footprint in the country.
Tata XPRES-T electric sedan was launched by the company in July of 2021 exclusively for fleet customers. The electric sedan is offered in two ARAI certified range options – 213 kilometres and 165 kilometres. For different range variants, the EV sources power from a high energy density battery pack of 21.5 kWh and 16.5 kWh, respectively.
It can be charged from 0 - 80% in 90 minutes and 110 minutes, respectively by using fast charging options. The EV can also be charged using any 15 A plug point. Transmission duties are performed by a single speed automatic unit and the vehicle features dual airbags, and ABS with EBD as standard across variants.
