Tata Motors on Tata Nano EV :
Tata Motors had decided to halt the production of the Nano compact cars in 2018. After five years, it’s coming back with a modified electric powertrain that has desired the company’s admirers to introduce the same to the EV space. The words of a supporter in the comment box itself reveal this urge,
“I believe Tata Nano Electric would be a success if it was made into production, we have seen the success of Tata Nexon EV and Tata Tigor EV. Everyone wants a small city electric car that is easy to drive in city traffic. Nano fits the gap. Easy to drive and easy to park.”
At present, Tata Motors, the leading hometown automaker only has two electric vehicles in the line-up is Tata Nexon EV and Tata Tigor EV those handed out for passengers’ use. However, the surged demand for electric vehicles among the commons, the excruciating fuel price of internal combustion engine vehicles, and the interest of government vested in the need for attaining decarbonization goal have bestirred Tata to undertake proposals to mark the resurgence of Tata Passenger Electric Mobility as the leading EV segment in India. Hence, last year company declared that the coming five years will see the launch of ten electric cars to raise 7500 crores to expand the EV business whereas they plan to release at least seven cars among the ten by the next four years. Reports suggest that the future plans of Tata in the case of electric wagons also include the blast-off of electric models of Tata Altroz and Tiago. The premium brand of Tata Motors, Jaguar Land Rover also aims to open up six all-new Electric Land Rover SUVs in the coming five years. Jaguar is also confident enough to label it as an all-electric brand from 2025.
Folks are eagerly waiting to get Tata Nano EV publicly available as there is no confirmation on whether it will go into production or not at the earliest.
This modified Tata Nano EV is based on the Tata Nano and it is powered by a super polymer lithium-ion battery. It runs at a claimed range of 160km and accelerates from 0 to 60kmph in less than 10 seconds.
