Tata Motors Receives An Order Of 10,000 X Press T Sedans
The domestic carmaker and the country’s leading electric car manufacturing company Tata Motors has bagged the order of 10,000 X Press T electric cars from the BluSmart Electric Mobility. According to the sources of the company, an agreement regarding this deal was signed on World Environment Day. It is the biggest electric vehicle order for any electric car manufacturing company in the country.
The X Pres electric car was specially launched for the fleet operator in the country by the car maker last year. It is available with ARAI-approved two-range options of 213 km and 165 km on a single charge. The two-range option variants receive the power from 21.5 kWh and 16.5 kWh batteries respectively. Both these batteries can be charged up to 80% in 90 minutes and 110 minutes. The electric car receives the features like a zero-emission tailpipe, ABS+EBD, a single-speed automatic transmission system, and two airbags. All these features are available as standard features. Apart from these features, the premium black theme receives an automatic climate control system and electric blue accents.
According to Shailesh Chandra, Managing Director, Tata Motors Passenger Vehicles Ltd., and Tata Passenger Electric Mobility Ltd, “Tata Motors is taking active steps towards the rapid electrification of mobility, and it is heartening to see renowned fleet aggregators joining the green mobility wave with us. We are delighted to continue our association with BluSmart Electric Mobility as we deploy 10,000 XPRES-T EVs across the country.” Moving ahead, he also added, “Our Xpers T EV fleet offers an optimal battery size along with a captive fast charging solution and has already set benchmarks in its category. Tata Motors is constantly working towards educating and enhancing the adoption of electric mobility in India and we hope that more people join us in this journey as we mobilize the nation to #EvolveToElectric”.
Speaking on the occasion, Anmol Singh Jaggi, CoFounder, BluSmart Electric Mobility, said, “With our $50M in Series A fundraise, we are supercharged to rapidly expand across Delhi NCR and the metro cities. We are thankful to Tata Motors for charging up our journey to scale up at a fast pace. BluSmart Electric Mobility has covered 50 million clean km and delivered over 1.6 million zero-emission rides with an elevated customer experience on its platform. We are building a large-scale integrated EV mobility ecosystem in India – from the country’s largest fully-electric ride-hailing service to the largest network of EV charging super hubs. With the increasing fleet size, we are leading India on the path to reliable, sustainable and zero-emissions mobility and also creating more inclusive and economic opportunities for driver-partners”.
