So far, Tata Motors has rolled out over 50,000 EVs in the personal and fleet segment

In July 2021, Tata Motors launched the ‘XPRES’ brand exclusively for fleet customers, and the XPRES-T EV is the first vehicle under this brand.

XPRES-T electric sedan comes with 2 range options—315 km and 277 km (ARAI certified range under test conditions). It packs a energy density battery of 26 kWh and 25.5 kWh and can be charged from 0-80 per cent in 59 minutes and 110 minutes, respectively. The vehicles can be charged using fast charging or can also be normally charged from any 15A plug point, which is easily available and convenient.

It comes with zero tail-pipe emission, single speed automatic transmission, dual airbags, and ABS with EBD as standard across variants. The premium interiors with standard automatic climate control and electric blue accents across its interior and exterior will give it a differentiated presence from other Tata cars.
