Tata Motors joined the EV race by offering the all-electric version of the Tata Tigor hatchback. The Tata Tigor EV was initially introduced as a fleet offering in metro cities.

However, the big break and limelight entry was made when Tata Motors forayed into the personal EV segment with its Nexon EV in January 2020.

From there onwards, Tata Motors has managed to dominate the segment with over 70 percent market share in the personal EV segment. In the last month alone, Tata Motors has managed to cross 1,000 unit sales.

Tata Motor said that the company has built a viable road map for the future and the company is committed to staying in this course of making EVs mainstream. The company also added that the feat is made possible because of early adopters of EV in the country.

"We are proud to have lived up to the high expectations of the early EV adopters. These customers have laid a strong foundation for EV ownership to further expand and have created a path for other prospective buyers to follow," said, Shailesh Chandra, President, Passenger Vehicle Business Unit, Tata Motors.

He also added that "the achievement of 10,000 EVs on road is a strong testament to how our innovative electric vehicles are resonating well with customers."

With these companies working together, Tata Motors is planning to form an expansive e-mobility ecosystem in the country called the Tata UniEVerse.

That being said, Tata Motors recently launched the Xpres-T EV in India. Xpres-T EV is Tata Motors latest offering for the commercial segment in India, and it is the first EV of the ‘Xpres' sub-brand of Tata Motors.

Though the recently launched Xpres-T EV is based on the Tata Tigor EV, it will be only sold for commercial purposes and cannot be registered as a private vehicle.

The Xpres-T EV comes with two choices of battery pack, both of which are smaller than the Tiago EVs to keep the cost down.

Despite being a commercial vehicle, Tata Motors has not skimped on any safety equipment either. The vehicle comes loaded with features like Dual-Airbags, ABS, EBD, and a few more.

Prices for the Xpres-T EV starts from Rs 9.54 lakhs (ex-showroom, India) and the top-end XZ+ model with the larger 21.5kWh battery pack costs Rs 10.64 lakh (ex-showroom, India).
