Tata Motors Signs India’s Largest EV Fleet Order, To Deliver 10,000 Electric Cars To BluSmart Mobility
Tata Motors signed an agreement with BluSmart Electric Mobility to deliver 10,000 XPRES T EVs to the company. This deployment of 10,000 units makes this the biggest ever electric vehicle (EV) fleet order in India.
With deliveries starting soon, these vehicles are an addition to the 3,500 XPRES T EV order, which both companies signed in October last year.
In July 2021, Tata Motors launched the XPRES brand exclusively for fleet customers, and the XPRES-T EV is the first vehicle under this brand. The XPRES-T electric sedan has two range options, 213 km and 165 km.
XPRES-T EV packs a high energy density battery of 21.5 kWh and 16.5 kWh and can be charged from zero to 80 per cent in 90 minutes and 110 minutes, respectively, using fast charging or can also be normally charged from any 15 A plug point which is readily available and convenient.
“We are delighted to continue our association with BluSmart Electric Mobility as we deploy 10,000 XPRES-T EVs across the country. Our XPRES-T EV fleet offers an optimal battery size and a captive fast charging solution and has already set benchmarks in its category,” Shailesh Chandra, Managing Director, Tata Motors Passenger Vehicles Ltd., and Tata Passenger Electric Mobility Limited said.
“With our $50M in Series A fundraise, we are supercharged to rapidly expand across Delhi NCR and the metro cities. We are thankful to Tata Motors for charging up our journey to scale up at a fast pace. BluSmart Electric Mobility has covered 50 million clean kms and delivered over 1.6 million zero-emission rides with an elevated customer experience on its platform,” Anmol Singh Jaggi, Co-founder BluSmart Electric Mobility, said.
In FY22, Tata Motors achieved a market share of 87 per cent in India’s four-wheeler EV sector and crossed 25 thousand Tata EVs on the road mark.
