The Government of India has an ambitious plan of shifting to pure electric vehicles by 2030. In line with the initiative, Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL) has already ordered 10,000 EVs from Tata Motors and Mahindra & Mahindra.
Now, Motor Octane reports that Prime Minister Narendra Modi will unveil a fleet of 400 Tata Nano electric cars in Delhi on November 28, 2017. Cab aggregator Ola will produce the Nano electric cars.
The report also states that the Nano electric is expected to have a range of around 150km and will be offered in white colour. The technology used in the electric variant of the Nano will be similar to that of the Tigor electric which would be supplied to EESL.
The electric technology is developed in collaboration with its sister company Jaguar Land Rover and Tata Motors UK. Despite featuring a new technology, the platform of the Nano will remain the same as the previous model.
The batteries on the Nano electric will be fitted under the seat and will not hamper the cabin space. Previously we have reported that the Nano electric has been spotted testing in India and it looks like the car is ready to be rolled out.
The Nano electric will be soon launched in India, but at the moment Tata Motors is focusing on supplying 10,000 electric Tigor compact sedans to EESL. The other bidders for the order were Mahindra and Nissan.
In a bid to curb pollution and carbon emission, the government is encouraging the use of electric vehicles. Now, Ola will be procuring 400 Nano electric cars which is a good move. But at the moment it is difficult to live with an electric car as the charging infrastructure is not in place. So, will the fleet of electric cars be a successful move? Only time will tell.
