Tata Motors have announced they have signed an agreement to deliver 10,000 XPRES T electric vehicles to BluSmart Electric Mobility. This order of 10,000 zero-emissions cars makes this the biggest ever fleet order in India. This is great news for Tata and India, and is yet another step towards accelerating the transition to sustainable transportation.
With deliveries starting soon, these vehicles are an addition to the 3,500 XPRES T EV order which was signed by both the companies in October last year. The vehicles will be used across the country for commuters, in turn helping to minimise their carbon footprint.
Shailesh Chandra, Managing Director of Tata Motors Passenger Vehicles Ltd. and Tata Passenger Electric Mobility Ltd., said: “Tata Motors is taking active steps towards the rapid electrification of mobility and it is heartening to see renowned fleet aggregators joining the green mobility wave with us.
“We are delighted to continue our association with BluSmart Electric Mobility as we deploy 10,000 XPRES-T EVs across the country. Our XPRES-T EV fleet offers an optimal battery size along with a captive fast charging solution and has already set benchmarks in its category.
“Tata Motors is constantly working towards educating and enhancing the adoption of electric mobility in India and we hope that more people join us in this journey as we mobilise the nation to #EvolveToElectric.”
In July 2021, Tata Motors launched the XPRES brand, exclusively for fleet customers and XPRES-T EV is the first vehicle under this brand. The electric saloon is offered in two battery options, 21.5kWh and 16.5kWh, which deliver ranges of 132 miles (213km) and 103 miles (165km) respectively.
Anmol Singh Jaggi, BluSmart Electric Mobility co-founder, said: “With our $50 million in Series A fundraise, we are supercharged to rapidly expand across Delhi NCR and the metro cities. We are thankful to Tata Motors for charging up our journey to scale up at a fast pace.
“BluSmart Electric Mobility has covered 50 million clean kilometres and delivered over 1.6 million zero-emission rides with an elevated customer experience on its platform. We are building a large-scale integrated EV mobility ecosystem in India – from the country’s largest fully-electric ride-hailing service to the largest network of EV charging super hubs.
“With the increasing fleet size, we are leading India on the path to reliable, sustainable and zero-emissions mobility and also creating more inclusive and economic opportunities for driver-partners.”
