Tata Motors rolls out first lot of Tigor EVs from Sanand plant

Tata Motors rolls out first lot of Tigor EVs from Sanand plant

Tata Motors began rolling out the first electric Tigor models from its Sanand plant in Gujarat on Wednesday, with the first vehicle flagged off in the presence of Tata Group chairman N Chandrasekaran, group doyen Ratan Tata and CEO Guenter Butschek.

The vehicles are part of the tender floated by the Energy Efficiency Services Ltd (EESL) for 10,000 EVs. The first of these vehicles were flagged off by Ratan N. Tata, chairman Emeritus, Tata Group, N. Chandrasekaran, chairman, Tata Sons and Tata Motors, Guenter Butschek, CEO & MD, Tata Motors, and members of the Tata Motors executive committee from the Sanand facility, the company said in a statement. I also recognise the invaluable contribution made by Electra EV as part of this team.

"With e-Tigor, we've begun our journey in boosting e- mobility and offering a full range of e-vehicles to customers".

Indian Government intends to make India an all electric vehicle market by the year 2030 and home grown manufacturers like Tata and Mahindra have been on the forefront of that ambitious dream ever since. The contract was later divided between Tata Motors and Mahindra and Mahindra after the latter matched the L1 bidder's price quote. In Phase 1, Tata Motors is required to deliver 250 Tigor EVs, for which it has received a LoA (Letter of Award).

The government is planning to have only electric cars by 2030 in its efforts to reduce both oil imports as well reduce carbon emissions to a significant extent.

A Garda And Another Man Have Been Injured In A Dublin Shooting
The incident occurred during a drugs raid which saw armed officers from the Emergency Response Unit support unarmed colleagues. When the gardai managed to gain entry, further shots were fired and a man inside the property sustained a gunshot wound.

Tata Motors had secured the first phase tender by bidding Rs 2.3 lakh lower than the second closest competitor Mahindra. Electra EV is the same company that supplies the electric motor for the Jayem Neo which is essentially the Tata Nano put together by Jayem motors for OLA cabs.

The Tigor EV is now supplied to EESL only.

Mahindra has already supplied some of them.

The EESL had placed the order in October, which mandated supply on or before 30 November, but was later postponed to December-end. It is expected to supply an additional 100 cars to EESL shortly.
