Tata Motors has entered an ‘in-house’ agreement with Tata Steel to introduce the Tigor electric cars as a means to transport employees. Tata Motors will deploy 40 units of the all electric Tigor at Tata Steel’s facility at Jamshedpur.
Tata Motors said that the first batch of Tigor electric vehicles has been handed over to Tata Steel officials, and the rest of the batch will be handed over soon. Both companies say that the move will help reduce carbon emissions, and will motivate employees to support & move to green vehicles.
Mr Shailesh Chandra, the President of Electric Mobility Business & Corporate Strategy at Tata Motors said that the company is elated to partner with Tata Steel and help them achieve their goal of inducting zero-emission vehicles to their fleet at Jamshedpur.
Tata Motors is of the opinion that a fleet of all electric Tigor vehicles will cater for and will address mobility needs in an Eco-friendly and economical manner. The company says they are committed to the electric mobility missions and will continue to develop e-mobility solutions for individual customers, and for corporates as well.
The Tata Tigor electric vehicle features a 21.5kWh battery and a single speed transmission set up. The car features dual airbags (XE+ variant features driver airbags only) and ABS as a standard. The Tigor EV also arrives with a three year/ 1.25 lakh kilometer (whichever comes first) warranty.
The Tata Tigor electric was launched last month at a starting price of Rs 9.44 lakh (ex-showroom, India). The price includes all government benefits and subsidies under the FAME II scheme. The vehicle is available in three variants – the XE+, the XM+, and the XT+.
