Tata Motors is currently dominating the Indian electric four-wheeler segment with models such as Tata Tiago EV, Tata Tigor EV, and Tata Nexon EV. Also, we know that Tata Motors have heavily invested in developing new electric vehicles for the future. Tata Motors is going to step up its EV offensive massively in coming days.
The carmaker has confirmed that it will launch as many as four electric vehicles by the first quarter of 2024. According to the roadmap laid by Tata Motors, the company will launch models such as Nexon EV facelift, Punch EV, Harrier EV, and Curvv EV.
Three out of these four EVs will be launched by the end of year 2023. The models include the facelift version of the Tata Nexon EV, the largest selling electric car in India currently. There are three brand new electric vehicle models also lined up for India launch soon.
While addressing the shareholders, chairman of Tata Sons N Chandrasekaran said, “We have a new upgraded Nexon, which will be launched anytime this year. We will then be launching the Harrier, Punch, and finally the Curvv towards the first quarter next year.
“Tata Motors India as well as Jaguar Land Rover have got extensive plans for electric vehicles. We have launched a number of products already. And then we have Nexon’s new upgraded version getting launched any time now”.
British luxury carmaker jaguar Land Rover, which is owned by Tata Motors, has also set a target of 65% of its vehicles to go green by the end of this decade. “JLR will take orders for all electric Range Rover and Range Rover Sports later this year. Then, we will be launching towards the end of the next year and early 2025 a series of Jaguar new models for all electric vehicles,” Chandrasekaran Added.
With the launch of these 4 electric SUVs in India, we expect the electric vehicle product portfolio of Tata Motors to be stronger than ever. Moreover, we expect this wide EV product portfolio to attract more customers.
Tata Group recently confirmed that it will be building an electric vehicle battery factory in the United Kingdom. This new battery factory in the UK will be the Tata Group’s first Gigafactory outside of India.
To build such a massive battery manufacturing plant in the UK, Tata Group is said to invest more than £4 billion (Rs 42,000 crore). Thanks to such a massive investment, this new battery plant by Tata is said to create as many as 9,000 jobs in the UK.
Tata Motors not shared too much details about the Harrier EV, except that it will come with V2L facility. Tata Curvv EV, which it likely to be called Tata Frest, will be based on the carmaker’s Gen2 powertrain, and will pack up to 500 kms on a single charge.
Nexon EV, Tata’s best-selling electric car, has already been spotted several times testing on roads ahead of the launch. The only model not showcased yet by the carmaker is Tata Punch EV. The carmaker recently launched the CNG version of the small SUV.
