As part of its Go-Green initiative, Tata Steel has taken the lead to introduce a fleet of electric vehicles (EV) for its employee transportation in Jamshedpur. The company has partnered with Tata Motors to deploy 40 Tigor EV.

The first batch of Tigor EVs was handed over by the Tata Motors’ team to Tata Steel officials, at the company’s plant in Jamshedpur. With this, the company intends to cut down on the carbon emission and motivate its employees to switch to green public commuting habits.

Shailesh Chandra, president – Electric Mobility Business and Corporate Strategy, Tata Motors said that the firm is delighted to partner with Tata Steel on their pragmatic initiative of inducting zero-emission vehicles in their fleet in Jamshedpur.

Tata Motors is playing a leading role in proactively driving electric mobility in the country. To build a sustainable future for India, the company has been working collaboratively on various electric and hybrid vehicle solutions.

In October, Tata Motors had announced the launch of its extended range Tigor EV Electric Sedan, with a range of 213 km, certified by ARAI. It will be available in 3 variants – XE+, XM+ and XT+ – for both fleet and personal segment customers.

The new Tigor EV will be available across 30 cities, at a starting price of Rs. 9.44 lakh, ex-showroom Delhi. This vehicle qualifies for a FAME II incentive for eligible commercial customers. The new extended version offers an enhanced driving range, low cost of ownership, connectivity, the comfort of a sedan and zero emissions.
