- Four more EVs to launch after the Nexon EV, in the next two years.
- Two SUVs, one sedan, and a hatchback are planned.
- All EVs will use Ziptron tech.
- Tigor, Altroz, H2X will be three of the launches.
Tata Motors has announced that it will launch four more electric vehicles over the next two years, which include two SUVs, one sedan, and a hatchback.
The H2X is a likely candidate for electrification – the SUV format is the most popular format today for consumers, and it will bring in the numbers for the brand’s EV department. The H2X is the codename for Tata’s smallest SUV that will slot in below the Nexon and will compete with other small crossovers like the Maruti Suzuki Celerio X and Mahindra KUV 100. The sedan will most likely be the Tigor EV, but in its second generation form. The first-gen Tigor EV was never put on sale to the general public, probably because its ARAI-certified maximum range of 142 km isn’t wholly practical. The hatchback will be an electric version of the Altroz, which is Tata’s upcoming premium hatchback. The fourth model will be an SUV, but nothing more is known about that launch at this point.
All the upcoming EV launches will sport Tata’s Ziptron tech, and combined with Tata’s plans to expand the charging network to 650 points by March of next year, should offer a viable alternative to a low-use fossil fuel-powered equivalent but without the environmental concerns.
The launch of the Nexon EV today marks the third electric vehicle to be put on sale in the last few months. The Indian government is making a concrete push towards electrification of vehicles, and has put in place standards and a plan to have a charging network that will allow electric vehicles to eventually cut our dependency on fossil fuels to zero.
