The big news from the electric vehicles (EV) space - Tata Motors has rolled out the first set of its electric auto Tigor from its Sanand plant in Gujarat. The Tigor EVs are being manufactured for the Indian Government's order of electric vehicles from the Energy Efficiency Services Ltd (EESL), an entity under the Ministry of Power.

"As we work together to build the future of e- mobility, I am confident that our customers will respond very favourably to this electric model", Chandrasekaran said at the event. Tata Motors had won the first phase of the tender, which will see it deliver 350 vehicles to the firm - in two batches. "This tender has effectively paved way for connecting our aspirations in the e-mobility space with the vision of the government", Guenter Butschek, CEO & MD, Tata Motors, said.

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 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. In the case of the Tigor EV, the tender requires for the vehicle to have a minimum range of 150km on a single charge.

The company has still not disclosed the specs of the Tigor electric which is powered by Electra EV, that Canadian brand that is also believed to be making a powertrain for the Nano EV.

Tata Motors had reportedly quoted a price of Rs 10.16 lakh for the every unit of Tata Tigor EV to the government, excluding GST.

Mahindra has already supplied some of them.

Tata Motors might have secured an order of 10,000 Tata Tigor EV cars but it was not the only one in the race.

The company said that for an additional 100 cars, the LoA is expected to be issued shortly by EESL.

The EESL had placed the order in October, which mandated supply on or before 30 November, but was later postponed to December-end.
