Tata Motors delivers first set of Tigor EVs to EESL

Mumbai: Automobile major Tata Motors on Thursday delivered the first set of Tigor Electric Vehicles (EVs) to state-run Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL).

According to the automobile major, the first set of Tigor EVs were delivered as part of the state-run company’s initiative to procure 10,000 electric vehicles.

Commenting on the occasion, Tata Motors’ CEO and MD Guenter Butschek said: “This initiative of the Government of India to procure 10,000 electric vehicles is a bold step in terms of promoting green and sustainable transport solutions.”

“With Tigor EV, we have begun our journey in boosting e-mobility and will offer a full range of electric vehicles to the Indian customers. This tender has effectively paved way for connecting our aspirations in the e-mobility space with the vision of the government.”

Tata Motors had qualified as “L1” bidder in the midst of stiff competition and won the tender floated by EESL in September 2017. For phase 1, Tata Motors is required to deliver 250 Tigor EVs, for which it has received a LoA (Letter of Award).
