The future is electric, and Tata Motors is laying down its roadmap for the Indian market. The brand plans to bring ten new electric vehicles to India by 2025. The brand also proactively intends to develop charging infrastructure across the country. In addition to this, reports suggest that the brand is also exploring the possibilities of partnering with cell and battery manufacturers in India and Europe. This will help the brand secure the supply of batteries for their upcoming battery electric vehicles.
Tata Nexon EV Leading the EV Space
Tata Motors is currently leading the electric vehicle sales chart in the Indian market. The brand has sold more than 4,000 Tata Nexon EVs in India. The company penetration in the EV space has doubled in FY2021. The brand also expects the EV penetration to rise in the coming days. The Tata Nexon EV is only the beginning of the brand. In the near future, Tata plans to evaluate an “automotive software and engineering” vertical to lead the group into the future of autonomous and connected driving.
Jaguar Land Rover – Reimagine
Tata-owned Jaguar Land Rover also announced that the brand plans to become a completely electric vehicle brand by 2025. Under the ‘Reimagine’ initiative, Jaguar intends to go full electric, completely replacing their internal combustion engine line-up with 100% electric-powered vehicles. The brand will leverage the Tata Group, which will help explore the potential synergies on clean energy. The brands will also collaborate to explore software development, data, and connected services. Under the new strategy, Jaguar also plans to become a carbon-neutral brand by 2039.
Land Rover Developing Hydrogen Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle
Land Rover also plans to become a zero-emission SUV brand. The brand is currently testing FCEV (Hydrogen Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle) technology on Land Rover cars in the UK. The plans coincide with the JLR Reimagine strategy to achieve zero tailpipe emissions by 2036. The brand is also planning to install hydrogen filling stations in the UK to sustain the FCEV project.
