Tata Motors has unveiled the Ace EV commercial vehicle in India. The Tata Ace EV arrives 17 years from the day the first Ace was launched in India, back in 2005.
Speaking at the unveiling of the all-new Tata Ace, N Chandrasekaran, Chairman, Tata Sons and Tata Motors, said, "E-mobility is an idea whose time has come. At Tata Motors, we are moving with speed and scale to lead this change - in passenger cars, commercial vehicles and Jaguar Land Rover. I am delighted today that with the launch of the Ace EV, we are entering a new era of e-cargo mobility. Tata Ace is India's most successful commercial vehicle ever. It has revolutionised transportation and created millions of successful entrepreneurs over the years. It will further build on this legacy by providing a technologically-advanced, clean and smart mobility solution. I am excited about the electrification of commercial vehicles."
Tata Motors has already signed Memorandums of Understanding to supply the new Ace EV to leading e-commerce giants and logistics service providers. Tata will deliver 39,000 units of the all-new Ace EV to Amazon, BigBasket, City Link, DOT, Flipkart, LetsTransport, MoEVing and Yelo EV. Tata will also set up dedicated electric vehicle support centres for maximum fleet uptime while also deploying its Tata Fleet Edge fleet management solution.
Speaking about the new Ace, Girish Wagh, Executive Director, Tata Motors, said, "The introduction of the Ace EV marks a major milestone in our journey to deliver zero-emission cargo mobility in India. Building on our experience and success with electric buses, we have designed use-case specific EV solutions for intra-city distribution. These solutions effectively cater to the application needs and deliver a superior value proposition to all stakeholders. We are much encouraged with the support and response received from our e-commerce customers, with whom we begin this journey of zero-emission cargo mobility."

Thoughts On The All-New Tata Ace EV
When it first arrived in 2005, the Tata Ace started a logistics revolution in the country. Now 17 years later, Tata Motors is taking that revolution down a green path with the all-new Ace EV. Hopefully, this switch to green power will transform the last-mile delivery ecosystem into a pure electric one.
