The adoption rate of EVs is surely increasing day by day thanks to the government pushing incentives. The market is also seeing a lot of new launches of EVs every month and there’s surely demand for it. In terms of electric cars, Tata has been ruling the market thanks to the Nexon EV. In fact, Tata recently launched its second EV in the form of the Tigor EV. Tata has now crossed 10,000 deliveries of its EV range and this is surely a step in the right direction for mass adoptions of EVs!
On the occasion, Mr. Shailesh Chandra, President, Passenger Vehicle Business Unit, Tata Motors said, “The achievement of 10,000 EVs on road is a strong testament to how our innovative electric vehicles are resonating well with customers. We are proud to have lived up to the high expectations of the early EV adopters and are thankful to them for their continued trust in the brand. These customers have laid a strong foundation for EV ownership to further expand and have created a path for other prospective buyers to follow.”
