Tata Motors and Lithium Urban Technologies, India’s largest electric vehicle (EV) fleet provider, have announced entering into a long-term partnership to offer electric mobility solutions in the market across passenger, mass transit and freight segments.
As part of this new deal, Lithium Urban Technologies will add 400 units of the newly launched long-range Tata Tigor Sedan EV sedan to its fleet, which will be delivered and deployed across India by the end of financial year 2019-2020.
The remaining 100 electric vehicles will include Tata’s upcoming EVs like the Nexon EV for corporate leadership transport services.
This partnership with Tata Motors will ensure availability of new form factors and enable viability of new market segments across passenger, mass transit and freight.
Lithium would move quickly to integrate the company’s paradigm-shifting LUTEC (LithiumUrbanTec) EV mobility utilization software with the new vehicles.
The recently launch long-range Tata Tigor EV comes with an extended range of 213 km on a single charge and is being sold to both fleet owners and private buyers.
Tata offers the option of both a standard AC charger and a fast DC charger, and while the battery takes about 11.5 hours to charge from 0 to 100 per cent with the former, the fast charger can offer 80 per cent power in 2 hours. The top speed of the car is 80 kmph.
